John Loughrey said “I’ve always been a Diana fan, but last year I woke up one day and decided to paint her name on my forehead – it just felt right,” he says.
“All I knew was that it had to be blue, because it’s a good colour – a royal colour and I know she liked it, so I’ve been wearing it ever since. She’s very important to me.”
So important, indeed, that he has spent 48 days – today will be his 49th – sitting extremely still on the same blue plastic chair in the public gallery of Court 73, watching the Diana inquest unfold before him.
“All I want is to see that the truth will out.
“And it’s terribly gripping – you’ll see what I mean in a minute.”
All I can say is the guy is a nutter.
