Was the Diana inquiry a waste of money?

Steve Boggan
Tuesday March 7, 2006
The Guardian


Setting aside the obvious supplementary question - And do you care? - the answer is not as simple as it may seem. According to reports yesterday, the two-year British inquiry into the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Fayed in a car crash in Paris in 1997 will conclude that it was an accident.
What, you say, Prince Charles didn't arrange the whole thing? Surely, if not him, then Prince Philip must have had them rubbed out?



No, Lord Stevens, the former head of the Metropolitan Police, who is leading the inquiry, is expected to snuff out the conspiracy theories and confirm French conclusions that Diana's driver, Henri Paul, was simply drunk and driving too fast. Oh, and that they would have survived had they been wearing seatbelts.
And the cost? Well, no one knows yet, but expect it to be way above £1m. Aside from the salaries, there was the travel and the expenses. Traffic cops in Panda cars might live on a diet of Hula Hoops in the UK, but when detectives go to Paris, filet mignon is probably the preferred option.

So was it a waste of money? Well, no. Diana's case might be more expensive and high-profile than yours or mine, should we get drunk and fall off a balcony in Tenerife, but you and I would be afforded the same care.

"Under the 1988 Coroners Act, an inquest will be held over here if an individual dies in unnatural circumstances while abroad - whether they are a royal or an ordinary person," says a spokesman for the Department for Constitutional Affairs. "And if the coroner feels more inquiries are needed, then the local police will be asked to conduct an investigation. And in this case, the royal coroner Michael Burgess made such a request."

So, in spite of all the hype attached to this case, there is a principle at stake. Plod would go and do his best for you and yours even if you got lagered up and fell off that balcony in Tenerife - if the coroner thought you might have been pushed. Regardless of your feelings towards the Princess of Wales and her playboy boyfriend, that has to be a sound principle.

Yes it is totally a waste of money if they are going to cover up. I think its toally a waste of money as we will never know the truth. Not at this life time.
