Paul Burrell pulls website amid 'hate mail' blitz
Di's former butler 'shocked' by public anger
The Queen of Hearts'™ former butler Paul Burrell has been forced to temporarily shut down his website following his humiliating appearance at the Lady Di inquest, the Sun reports.
While the site currently offers the message "Temporarily closed, for updates and a new look... come back soon", the paper claims Burrell attracted so much "hate message" flack from irate fans of England's Rose that he decided to batten down the hatches.
A friend reportedly said: "So many people have sent messages to the site criticising Paul that he's had to take it down. It's shocked him."
Burrell, 49, last week admitted at the inquest to copying Diana's personal correspondence to preserve it for its "historical importance", as he put it. He subsequently used extracts for his best-selling books about life with the princess.
Richard Keen, QC, representing the parents of fatal crash driver Henri Paul, commented on Burrell's assertion that he was Diana's "rock" with the withering: "Are you perhaps quite a porous rock, Mr Burrell, given how much leaked out into interviews, letters, and books?" ®
you met Burrell? would you consider making a website about him? I'm sure that we could find a way to make it pay, you know. And Max Clifford once threw up in my grandma's rosebushes, I think I still have his phone number ...
The Butler did it!
(Paris icon in honour of her predecessor as world's dumbest eye-candy.)
The main reason, as most UK-based El Reg readers will know, that the porous butler (love that 'porous' jibe BTW) is in the news ATM is because of the ongoing Diana inquest. But, although he may be an exploitative self-regarding prat, the butler is not the villain of the piece and doesn't deserve to receive hate mail.
The bad guy here is 'Mad Mo' Fayed . Send the hate mail to him.
The sole reason the British taxpayer is paying up to £10million to rake over these ten-year-old events is that Mad Mo will not let the dead rest.
I've got a message for you, Fayed. Your wastrel son and his bit of posh died because their car hit a concrete pillar at high speed while being driven by a drunken driver. And because they were too fucking arrogant or stupid to use their seat belts.
No-one murdered them. It wasn't a conspiracy. It was a drink-drive accident. What's more, the Dimbo wasn't up the duff and she was probably no more likely to marry Dodi as Dido or Dando.
Get real, Fayed! Go back to your shopkeeping, you nutter, and let it rest - we're bloody sick of it all.
