Die, Di

At the risk of upsetting a thousand lonely satellites, I propose The Death of Diana, Princess of Wales: A Tragi-Comedy in Three Parts.

In all seriousness, I would like to explore this bizarre period in recent British history - the accident, the aftermath, the very public, nauseating grief, the strange, failed attempts at civic memorials, the conspiracy theories, et al.

There's an excellent little pamphlet released by a think tank a few years ago called Conspicuous Compassion, which takes the Diana phenomenon as its prime example. I will use this is the basis of a piece of writing, perhaps.
