On August 28, 1997, The Sun launched a particularly venomous attack on Princess Diana following her alleged praise for Labour's support of her anti-landmine crusade.

It warned her: "The last Royal who interfered in politics met a nasty end", and concluded, "It's her mouth. If she can't control it, she should keep it closed."

Hounding Diana and boyfriend Dodi Fayed was a favourite sport for the amoral hacks of The Sun, of course, and it sold newspapers very nicely.

But when, three days later, Diana tragically did "meet a nasty end", The Sun changed its tune and whipped the nation into hysterical grief. It sold newspapers.

Ronnie Biggs? A pathetic, sick old man involved 38 years ago in a grotesquely glamorised robbery.

Brought home in the public interest? No - to sell The Sun newspaper. And The Sun should meet the bill for all aspects of his renewed residency in porridge, not the taxpayer. That would be daylight robbery.
