    Usually, I've no time for this country's obsession with Diana. Daily Express - get a grip. Hopefully, now 10 years have elapsed, things will calm down but I doubt it.

    Anyway, today I was glad because they've closed the Mall but left a nice gap in the concrete barriers for bikes.

    Anyone else head down there this morning? It was great. I cycled down the wrong side of the road just for the hell of it.

    The only time it comes close to closed is on a Sunday but then you get lemming tourists wandering into the road without looking so it's no fun

    I think people need to get a grip with the Diana rubbish. She's gone, get over it.

    Its a complete over-reaction and time it was quashed.

    Interestingly it is Fayed and the Express keeping it going!

    One of the main factors preventing the investigation under French Law is the ridiculous stalling tactics employed by Fayed and his legal team to keep the investigation form happening.

    It must really piss him off that Abramovich waltzed in and set himself up here, especially as he's a blatant crook.
    Maybe it's because he's keeping Airbus afloat!
