IT’S been pretty well established that paparazzi and the papers had a role to play in the death of Princess Diana. The Daily Mail was so contrite it famously stated that it would no longer buy paparazzi photos. And then it realised readers could see the crashed car all over the web so it went mad and bought up every paparazzi photo in the world and started ogling kids.

Today the Mail says the media had no part to play in Diana’s death whatsoever. It was the SAS wot dunnit.

Daily Mail Reporter reports:

An [sic] sniper who claims the SAS were involved in a plot to kill Princess Diana has reportedly fled to Thailand in fear of his life.

If you are in fear of your life you would let it be known that you were heading to Thailand? Would you let the Daily Star track you down?

The anonymous soldier is said to be laying low in south-east Asia as police investigators probe claims that members of the Army helped cause the car crash that killed Diana in 1997.

That would be the single claim made by an SAS soldier of questionable repute .

It has been claimed that special forces agents shined a light into the eyes of Diana’s driver, which led to him losing control of the car and hitting a pillar in a tunnel in Paris.

Sure, he was speeding. Sure, he’d been drinking. Sure, Diana wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Sure, the paparazzi were right behind them. But you need to focus on the light.

The sniper – known only as Soldier N – made the claims to police investigators, leading to the inquiry into the Princess’s death being reopened. But he fled the country before Scotland Yard could properly examine the evidence, which was handed over by the Royal Military Police, reported the Daily Star.

The Daily Star reported:

Soldier N, who claimed the SAS assassinated Diana, disappeared before authorities could speak to him. It is believed he is now hiding in south-east Asia, adding to fears Diana’s death riddle might never be solved.

Why Thailand?

An insider said: “He will not be welcome in the Middle East as there is a large community of former SAS personnel who use Dubai and other locations as a base for their work. Those in the regiment will not be happy with his comments about Princess Diana. In the eyes of the SAS he brought the unit into disrepute and in military terms he will be ‘blackballed’. It is also expensive to live in the Gulf states and I don’t believe that he has the resources to sustain a new life there.”

And how does the Star back up its fact-light scoop? I|t issues lots of stories, like this one:

Princess Diana was ‘a lamb to the slaughter’
