Any Diana conspiracy theorists out there?

If so, can you answer me this question…

Why on earth would the British security services choose to assassinate Princess Diana on foreign soil, where matters would be beyond their control, rather than here in the UK, where they might conceivably be able to get away with the murder of the century?

Obviously just because nobody would suspect them if they killed Diana on foreign soil, where matters would be beyond their control. ;-)

Bottom line: a drunk driver was driving over 60 mph in a 30 mph zone and crashed into a pillar. The drunk driver was a longtime employee of the Fayed family.  End of discussion. No assassin on a grassy knoll, no Prince Philip hit squad, no alien abductions.

The late Quentin Crisp spoke truthfully, if bluntly, that Princess Diana's fast and shallow lifestyle contributed to her own demise: "She could have been Queen of England -- and she was swanning about Paris.   What disgraceful behavior. Going about saying she wanted to be the queen of hearts. The vulgarity of it is so overpowering." (Atlanta Southern Voice, 1 July 1999).

Or to put it more kindly, both Diana and her brother, Charles Spencer,  suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder caused by their mother's abandonning them as young children.  (A google search reveals that Diana is considered a case study in BPD by mental health professionals).

For Charles Spencer, BPD meant insatiable sexual promiscuity (his wife was divorcing him at the time of Diana's death).

For Diana, BPD meant intense insecurity and an insatiable need for attention and affection (which even the best husband could never have fulfilled). These sowed the seeds of her fast and unstable lifestyle and her tragic fate.
