Is it possible to spot the journalists and politicians working for the security services?

British journalist Kim Philby

The Princess Diana inquest may tell us quite a lot about the extent of infiltration of the media by the security services.

"I admit to not being entirely disinterested in this matter. How could I be, having seen Mr Fayed name me in court on Monday as one of many implicated in his alleged MI6 plot to murder the Princess of Wales?" - Dominic Lawson: Some people can protect themselves against Mohamed ...


"The proceedings are vilified by talk-show hosts and belittled by opinion-formers from cab drivers to Question Time panellists.

"A week ago, Newsnight was given permission by the Attorney General to hold a discussion on whether the inquest is a waste of public money.

"By Sunday, Ken Wharfe, Diana's former protection officer, had called it a 'tawdry spectacle' (in contrast to his own book Diana: Closely Guarded Secret).

"On the Monday, Max Hastings called it 'a dirty-raincoat show' (see An Inside Story of Newspapers by Hastings for more elevating memories of the 'divinely beautiful, lonely, bewitching" princess). Both referred to the inquest proceedings as a 'circus'." - New Statesman - A ringside seat at the Diana circus
