these people are hopeless. nothing like a story linked to the royal family to push terrorism, earthquakes, a firefighters’ strike, and a serial rapist off the front page. this butler dude should do some time for just being stupid. he was going through this “ordeal” for almost two years…accused of theft, and generally being drug through the mud….and not until now does it come out that he told the friggin queen a long time ago that he was keeping diana’s things for safekeeping? if he would have mentioned it to either his lawyer or the prosecutor back in january of 2001, he would’ve saved everyone heartache(supposedly, some family members became suicidal and started losing the ‘skin on their hands’) and money(the cost of a prolonged trial and all the preceding court expenses).
