Evidence for Princess Diana death conspiracy?

 Welcome to The Crazy News Blog!

 

Too crazy to be true?

New evidence emerges 10 years after the death of a Princess.

“There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge”

That’s what Queen Elizabeth told Paul Burrell the butler of late Princess Diana of Wales who died 10 years ago this month.

What on earth did that statement mean?

It’s a quote that arose in news reports back in 2002 and it stirred up the already speculative conspiracy theories that have circulated since much of the world mourned one of the most high profile figures in history.

And now, the conspiracy theorists may have fresh meat to add to the speculation that Diana did not die in a tragic accident, but was murdered.

According to the London tabloid, The Daily Express, French fire-fighter Christophe Pelat claims to have evidence linking the Diana car accident in a Paris tunnel in 1997 to a paparazzi photographer who was believed to have been driving the mystery car that collided with Diana’s Mercedes before it crashed.

Pelat claims that he found the burnt body of James Andanson with a gunshot wound to the head. According to the report in the Daily Express, Andanson was an informer to MI6, the UK’s special intelligence agency, and he followed the Princesses “every move” in the day’s before her death.

Diana died along with her lover Dodi Al Fayed and their chauffeur Henri Paul August 31, 1997.

Jail mysteries: French criminal escapes prison with chopper, while military sky dives into Colorado big house.

Off target

Irony, a word derived from the French language, a word that popped into my head when reading about what happened at a prison in south-east France.

A daring, and arrogant, flying escape from a very tenacious French crook.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp reports:

French criminal jailed for having organised a helicopter-assisted prison break has again escaped from a French prison using a helicopter.

Pascal Payet, 43, escaped from Grasse prison, in south-east France, after a helicopter hijacked by four masked men landed on the roof of the prison, said a source close to the investigation.

The helicopter landed some time later at Brignoles, 38 kilometres north-east of Toulon, on the Mediterranean coast.

Those French dudes sure know how to escaping prison in style.

More detail from expatica.com

Now, just a thought, could it be possibly that Pascal Payet and his gang got the idea from an unlikely source…?

This is a clip from an old Australian TV soap called Prisoner, aired from 1979-1986.

You might want to skip to about half way through, otherwise you’ll have to sit through some really horrible Australian accents the generation of Aussies up from me seems to have acquired.

As you’ll see its really lame stuff, but could this story be a case of art imitating life?

Fun times for all.

And since we’re speaking of prisons and air travel…

It’s been reported that in Colorado, USA, a squad of 25 military paratroopers mistakenly landed inside the perimeter of a state prison in the early hours of the morning.

Prison guards quickly escorted the clearly disorientated troopers off the grounds “without violence”, glad to know.

Apparently the US Air Force is keeping a lid on it, officially saying that they are unaware of any such incident.

Update: The US military finally commented today, CNN reported, but were not generous with the details.

“Those were Special Operations Command forces conducting routine training,” Army Col. Hans Bush, a spokesman for the command at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, said Monday. He declined to identify the units that landed at Fremont Correctional Facility but said the target was Fremont County Airport.
