Princess Diana - Does Al-Fayed need medical treatment?

Once again Mohamed Al Fayed has repeated his statements that Princess Diana was murdered by MI5 & MI6 working together, along with members of the Royal Family and others as well, even accusing tv reporters of belonging to MI6, indeed he accuses every single person at the inquest who disagrees with his own views to be part of a 'Cover up'. Most of what he is saying is clearly the ravings of a very disturbed man who is clearly distraught at the loss of his son, but to accuse MI5 & MI6 of working together in this is ridiculous as most people can't see them working together on anything else, it is also unlikely that everyone at the inquest is in the pay of the security services. The most likely explanation is that the deaths occured because none of them were wearing seat belts (which almost certainly would have saved them), and being driven at high speed by a driver who was unfit due to drink. In actual fact because of this there is clearly a case for corporate manslaughter against the management of Harrod's (Mohamed Al Fayed) for allowing someone in his employment to drive after taking so much alcohol.

I couldn't agree more. I think that Al Faye more than displays the symptoms of a grieving father and I also think that there is an element of getting back at the establishment. You may recall that he has consistently had his claims for British citizenship denied and Harrods has lost its Royal Warrant. What particularly sticks in my craw though it that you and I are paying for this inquest. If it were our children, I don't think that we would be given the luxury of two public inquests. Especially if they were based on the wild ramblings and allegations of one aggrieved multi-millionaire parent.

If he could have behaved with a lot more calm and dignity and not responded with some of his more wilder accusations then people may have given more respect to the rest of his views, but they way he behaved both at the inquest and afterwards gave an impression of someone completely deranged.

Whilst I agree that Al Fayed appears to have lost the plot, I am prepared to give him leeway for a couple of reasons. 1) He has always been a little eccentric, and that always manifested itself (publicly) in quite a humorous way (before his tragic loss) 2) Unless you have lost a child (I Thank God that I haven't), you cannot begin to comprehend what that would do to your mind, especially if you were not the most straightforward of people before-hand... 3) Accepted that he is costing the state money, but he has provided employment and invested heavily in the UK (Harrods, Fulham football club), I for one am relieved that the inquiry is taking place so that at least most people will appreciate that there is no cover up... It is such a shame that the fun-loving Al Fayed persona has taken this turn, but I think he should have his day and get it over with. Sadly for him, there will be no justification of his conspiracy theories and so he will probably die a bitter man. Whilst his theories are surely pure fantasy, I think that if it helps him to voice them on a public platform, then he should go ahead. I would be more appalled at the likelihood that there are members of his legal team who know that they are taking advantage of a grieving man - Do you think that any of those people will be laughing behind his back?? Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised to find that was the case...

I am beginning to think that the whole thing is being blown out of all proportion, its like he tries to make out that the royal family are involved, its all a conspiracy and that the whole thing was planned and now everyone is trying to cover it up. I think that he needs to calm down and stop trying to turn it into something its not, maybe he has read too many books or watched too many films. It probably is down to drunken driving and just an awful tragic sad accident that has now dragged on for such a long time and Princess Diana and Dodi Al fayed should be allowed to rest in peace now.
