Diana concert loses ex-lovers

While the decision to bar anyone who may or may not have had sex with Diana from her memorial concert does at least mean we'll be spared James Hewitt on washboard, for a concert supposedly desperate for people to take part closing down the potential pool might not be such a good idea.

For a start, it rules out Bryan Adams. A courtier has leaked:

"The princes have nothing against Bryan Adams, but they want the concerts to be free from any innuendo or tittle-tattle. It was decided that it would be inappropriate for Adams to appear."

The Kaiser Chiefs have suggested that nobody who didn't know her should not play. Now the Princes are insisting that anybody who knew her shouldn't. It's just going to be ninety minutes of Elton John, isn't it?

haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! How funny. And they want Elton John to play, he's full of innuendo & tittle tattle! Jeez. They should just make it, anyone who wants to take part should turn up!

'nobody who didn't know her should not play' either there's an extra 'not' in there at the end or my grasp of grammar is really weak. I needed to read this statement 4 times, putting my finger under each word and mouthing it as I read.

You're right Nat - actually, you should suggest that to the Princes. They could call it "The People's Jam" or something.

Pragjag: You're right, I have constructed a hideous beast of a sentence. It could either be more elegantly recast as "anybody who didn't know her should not play" or, more alternatively, "nobodies who didn't know her should not play."

Apologies.
