A Sombre Anniversary

It is three years since a stunned nation awoke to the horror that was Mary Riddell's sixth anniversary piece about Diana, which concluded with the meaningless statement that "personal tragedy is too frail a foundation to bear the weight of public recrimination".

Three years on, she's decided that Diana did make a difference after all.


"Look at a generation plagued by mental illness, by eating disorders and by the cult of fame, then say that Diana left no legacy".

"eating disorders" SO 1970s.

With the likes of Kaye Moss, Jade Goody, Pete Doherty etc on the scene 24/7, a bit harsh to blame it all on Diana, methinks...

If I ever see one more newspaper headline about Lady bloody Diana, that will be one too many.

She was just a rather dim, self-centred clothes-horse who got lucky and then threw it all away.

Jeez. Who cares?
