mad mo and miserable macca

It might be just me but I was intrigued by some of the news reports this morning. Firstly Mohamed Al Fayed at last had his day in the dock and he didn’t disappoint did he? What a fantastic blast he had at the Establishment. He believes that Prince Philip is a Nazi (you’ve clearly been practicing the salute Mr AF) and a racist which is probably stretching reality just a little bit (but not much) but more fascinatingly he also maintains the PP was assisted by a small group of conspirators in an MI6 plot to take out Diana and his son in that infamous car crash in the Paris underpass. Supporting PP by his reckoning were Prince Charles, Tony Blair, Jonathan Powell, Robin Cook, Lord Fellowes, Lord Jay, Lord Stevens, Lord Condon, James Andanson, Henri Paul, Herve Stephan, Lord Mishcon, Dominic Lawson, Rosa Monckton, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and the very queenly Paul Burrell in cahoots with MI5, the French Secret service, the CIA and the Parisian ambulance service no less. Yes they were all involved. Now that’s what I call a conspiracy theory. Quite delusional, perhaps even howling at the moon mad, but I’d award him a British passport for giving the British judicial system its best day of fun seen since Ken Dodd beat that tax rap. Top marks Mr Al Fayed (and pasta paulie isn’t my code name in the Italian secret service…. or is it?).

heather mills mccartney, part 2

I’m hoping this will be the last time I feel the need to write about Heather Mills McCartney. I’ve read a number of reviews on her ranting performances yesterday. Most have been critical – she complains about a bad press and then takes actions which further fuel it. It wasn’t a surprise to hear today that her PR company have resigned from the account. They clearly weren’t behind the decision for her to appear on GMTV and later on 5 Live radio and must have watched in horror as their client buried herself in more awful publicity. They must have feared her actions would drag them down too. I do however have sympathy with her in one sense. She is seeking to ensure through European law that any retractions/apologies made in the press for patently inaccurate/misleading reporting is given similar placement and prominence as the original feature. It’s not likely to be something that most of us will have to worry about (I hope) and it might take her forever to achieve it but in this respect I wish her well. It’s an understandable beef. But I do still feel that her best course of action is to shut up, settle with Paul for $50m and just go and f**k off and lead a quieter life in the Bahamas. For our sakes too love.

So HMM’s been hogging all the media attention this morning appearing on GMTV and Five 5 complaining about the fact that innaccurate media coverage has driven her to the verge of suicide. This apparently was the course she considered to protect her child (a bit odd) having received death threats. Having been told by the police to desist from calling the 999 service she has employed a private security firm to protect her and her daughter. Feeling more secure she is calling on Britain to stop buying tabloids. Comparing herself to Princess Diana and the McCanns she claims that she only appeared on Dancing with the Stars to pay her security bills and that she has never used the media to promote anything other than her charity work – apart from today presumably.
