Princess' rock rejects allegation by a senior French police source

hat she was pregnant when she died in a car crash in Paris...

DIANA’S butler Paul Burrell yesterday denounced as “monstrous”

new claims by a senior French police source

that she was pregnant when she died.

The official alleges there was a “cover-up of sorts”

to prevent embarrassment for the princess’s family.

But Burrell says Diana was not pregnant

when she was killed in a Paris car crash with boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed.

Mr Burrell, her “rock”, added: “It is a monstrous suggestion,

more tiresome speculation.”

Nasa's shot at comet's secrets


Nasa scientists are preparing the ultimate Independence Day firework

- a copper missile shot into the heart of a giant comet.

After a voyage of more than six months and 268m miles,

the Deep Impact spacecraft will intercept

the 2.5-mile wide (4km) Tempel-1 comet travelling at 23,000mph

and fire a one-metre copper projectile into it.

Astronomers hope the explosive encounter on July 4

will smash a hole in the comet's icy exterior and show what lies inside.

Saturn's first probe

to land 'with a thump or a squelch'


Space engineers sent Europe's Huygens probe sweeping towards Saturn's largest moon, Titan, yesterday. Officials at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said they had received a signal confirming that the barbe cue-sized robot craft had separated from its mother ship, the American-built spaceship Cassini.

Huygens, which is bristling with British-built instruments and detectors, will take 20 days to reach Titan, the only moon in the solar system with an atmosphere. Scientists believe conditions on Titan are similar to those on Earth before life evolved, billions of years ago.

On 14 January, Huygens will enter Titan's thick atmosphere of nitrogen and methane and descend by parachute towards the moon's surface, relaying its data to Cassini above.

What are three separate children's publishers thinking of, peddling this grubby book, which demeans both young women and young men? It will prove as effective a form of sexual bullying as any hardcore porno mag passed round. And, make no mistake, the publishers may slap a warning and a picture of a condom on the front and substitute a grown-up penguin for a puffin, but it was the children's publisher Andersen Press that commissioned this novel. It is Random House Children's Books who have it in their catalogue beside Emma Chichester Clark's Up in Heaven and Ken Brown's What's the Time, Grandma Wolf? (ages 4 and up). And the people who are putting most into this book are Penguin Children's Books, who were thrilled to win the paperback auction.

Advertising across London buses for Burgess's current novel, Lady ("The book your parents don't want you to read"), shows up for the hypocrisy it is Penguin's claim to publish this "responsibly". Everything about it has gone through the children's side: purchase, editing, publicity. The only unusual aspect is the sudden decision to stop sending out proofs. (Getting nervous?)

Aznar's ruling People's party to boycott homage by parliament
old dictator's ghost continues to haunt the nation's political stage

The governing People's party of Spain's conservative prime minister José María Aznar has refused to take part in a homage in parliament today to the victims of General Francisco Franco.

The late dictator's controversial legacy is dividing Spanish politicians once more, with the ruling party being the only one to boycott the homage to several hundred, mainly elderly, political prisoners, former anti-Franco guerrillas, members of the International Brigades, exiles, and families of those executed by his firing squads.

I wonder how many of the animal rights activists

have lived a farm or country life

It seems that people in general see the meat at the butcher's

as a generic commodity, and not as the leg of an individual lamb

(possibly named Fluffy by the children) for instance...

a lamb that was killed, skinned, gutted and sliced

and sawed into pieces for the table.

It seems that the activists might intellectually know,

but not really understand

that the natural outcome of all wild and farm animals is to be eaten,

and for the wild animals usually messily and sooner,

as youngsters, rather than later.

    Anne Carney writes, 2003,






Westminster's leader, Simon Milton, said he faced a "hardcore" of homeless people who needed to be forced to "come in from the cold".

The council has already proposed fines of up to £500 for anyone sleeping rough in high profile areas such as Westminster Cathedral piazza and St James's park.

(...) The charity's director, Adam Sampson, added: ""Westminster council's 'tough love' approach to rough sleepers will not work. The claim that all the services exist to help rough sleepers and street homeless people is untrue.
