There is something rather tragic about the spectacle of Mohammed al-Fayed sounding off in the High Court about the establishment’s supposed role in the death of Princess Diana. One doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry when one hears about statements like this from Fayed:

“Prince Philip rules the country behind the scenes. I think Prince Philip is the actual head of the Royal Family. He is a racist. He was brought up by his aunt who married one of Hitler's generals. This is the man who is in charge who is manipulating and can do anything. 

"Time to send him back to Germany from where he comes. You want to know his original name – it ends in Frankenstein."
