Long (2500 words approx.) article on the David Kelly Affair (Kellygate), followed by comments

Dr David Kelly: The damning new evidence that points to a cover-up by Tony Blair's government

Last updated at 9:24 AM on 26th June 2010
The official story of Dr David Kelly is that he took his own life in an Oxfordshire wood by overdosing on painkillers and cutting his left wrist with a pruning knife. 
He was said to be devastated after being unmasked as the source of the BBC’s claim that the Government had ‘sexed up’ the case for war in Iraq.
A subsequent official inquiry led by Lord Hutton into the circumstances leading to the death came to the unequivocal conclusion that Kelly committed suicide.
Yet suspicions of foul play still hang heavy over the death of the weapons expert whose body was found seven years ago next month in one of the most notorious episodes of Tony Blair’s premiership.
Mystery: A new investigation in the death of weapons expert Dr David Kelly has revealed shocking new claims of a government cover-up

Many believe the truth about the manner of Dr Kelly’s death has never been established properly. Some even fear that the 59-year-old, the world’s leading expert in biological and chemical weapons, was murdered.
Of course, it would be easy to dismiss these sceptics as wild conspiracy theorists — but for the fact they include eminent doctors and MPs.
The blanket of secrecy thrown over the case by the last Labour Government has only fuelled the sense of mystery. 
In January this year, it emerged that unpublished medical and scientific records relating to Dr Kelly’s death - including the post-mortem report and photographs of his body - had been secretly classified so as not to be made public for 70 years.
Lord Hutton, who had been appointed by Blair, was responsible for this extraordinary gagging order, yet its legal basis has baffled experts accustomed to such matters.
Against this shadowy background, we have conducted a rigorous and thorough investigation into the mystery that surrounds the death of David Kelly. And our investigation has turned up evidence which raises still more disturbing questions.
Our new revelations include the ambiguous nature of the wording on Dr Kelly’s death certificate; the existence of an anonymous letter which says his colleagues were warned to stay away from his funeral; and an extraordinary claim that the wallpaper at Dr Kelly’s home was stripped by police in the hours after he was reported missing - but before his body was found.

Until now, details of Dr Kelly’s death certificate have never been made public. 
But the certificate was obtained by a group of leading doctors who have spent almost seven years investigating the case; doctors who believe it is medically implausible that he died in the manner Hutton concluded and are alarmed at the unorthodox way the death certificate was completed.
Near the top of all British death certificates is a box headed ‘Date and place of death’, in which a doctor or coroner should declare the exact location of a death, if it has been established. 
Dr Kelly’s certificate gives his date of death as July 18, 2003. It then states in reference to place of death: ‘Found dead at Harrowdown Hill, Longworth, Oxon’.
Why was the word ‘found’ used? Why was the crucial question of ‘place of death’ not answered? The death certificate should be precise about the time, cause and location of death.
The doctors who have investigated the case believe the failure to answer this question leaves open the possibility that Dr Kelly died somewhere other than Harrowdown Hill, the wood where his body was discovered. If this was the case, they are concerned the law may have been subverted over Dr Kelly’s death.

Any such irregularity would inevitably add to the pressure to reopen the case. Indeed, earlier this month it was revealed that Justice Secretary Ken Clarke and Attorney General Dominic Grieve, who have the power to undo Hutton’s 70-year gagging order and demand a coroner’s inquest into Dr Kelly’s death, are poised to re-open the case.
To this day, the location where Dr Kelly died remains a mystery — yet it is surely the most basic requirement of an investigation into any violent or unexpected death.
Nor was the question of the location of death raised at the Hutton Inquiry. 
Amazingly, Chief Inspector (now Superintendent) Alan Young of Thames Valley Police, who headed the investigation into Dr Kelly’s death, did not even give evidence to the Hutton Inquiry. 
Significantly, it emerged via a Freedom of Information request in 2008 that a police helicopter with heat-seeking equipment which searched for Dr Kelly on the night he disappeared did not detect his body.
Search: It is claimed that on the night Dr David Kelly went missing, officers from Thames Valley Police removed wallpaper from his house

At 2.50am on July 18, 2003, the helicopter flew over the exact spot where Dr Kelly’s body was found by a search party less than six hours later, at 8.30am. 
Yet the pathologist who took Dr Kelly’s body temperature at 7pm on the day his body was found determined that Dr Kelly could still have been alive at 1.15am on July 18 — just 95 minutes before the helicopter flew over the patch of woodland.
If that was the case, the body would have been warm enough to be picked up by the helicopter’s heat sensors. Why didn’t the helicopter pick it up? Was it because Dr Kelly did not die where his body was found?
A full coroner’s inquest, which, by law, must be held following any sudden, unexpected or violent death, would have addressed these discrepancies. 
But no full inquest was ever held. 
Oxfordshire Coroner Nicholas Gardiner opened an inquest on July 21. But on August 13 the then Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer, Tony Blair’s former flatmate, ordered it to be adjourned indefinitely.
Falconer used an obscure law to suspend proceedings, and for the first time in English legal history he replaced an inquest with a non-statutory public inquiry to examine a single death, seemingly without any public explanation.
When we tracked Mr Gardiner down, he refused to say whether he was ‘either happy or unhappy’ about this decision, but he did admit: ‘Public inquiries of this sort are very rare creatures. I think this was only about the third there had ever been.’
In fact, it was the fourth. Using a public inquiry to replace a coroner’s inquest - under Section 17a of the Coroner’s Act - in order to examine a death has only ever happened in three other cases. And in each case, it was where multiple deaths have occurred.
These were the incidents in which 31 people were killed in the Ladbroke Grove rail crash in 2000; the 311 deaths connected with Dr Harold Shipman; and the 36 deaths associated with the Hull trawler Gaul which sank in the Barents Sea in 1974 and whose case was re-opened in 2004.
The public was led to believe that the death of Dr Kelly would be investigated more rigorously by the Hutton Inquiry than by a coroner.
Lord Hutton
Coroner Nicholas Gardiner
Conclusion: Lord Hutton's inquiry ended while the judge was still taking evidence from witnesses. Coroner Nicholas Gardiner, right, refused to say whether he was ‘either happy or unhappy’ that an inquest he opened was indefinitely adjourned
But it is now clear that the opposite was in fact true - for Hutton lacked the powers of a coroner. He could not hear evidence under oath; he could not subpoena witnesses; he could not call a jury; and he could not aggressively cross-examine witnesses.
Astonishingly, on August 18, less than three weeks into the Hutton Inquiry, which opened on August 1, Dr Kelly’s death certificate was mysteriously completed and the cause of his death officially registered as haemorrhage.
Put another way, five weeks before the Hutton Inquiry ended on September 24, 2003, and while the judge was still taking evidence about Dr Kelly’s death from witnesses, the official record of the cause of death was written and the case effectively closed.
Misleadingly, the death certificate states an inquest did take place on August 14 - even though we now know no inquest actually happened. And extraordinarily, though it bears the signature of the registrar, it is not signed by either a doctor or a coroner as every death certificate should be.

Dr Michael Powers QC, a former coroner and an expert in coroner’s law who is working to secure a full and proper inquest, said: ‘This death certificate is evidence of a failure properly to examine the cause of Dr Kelly’s death. It is evidence of a pre-judgment of the issue. In a coroner’s inquest the cause of death would not be registered until the whole inquiry had been completed. As we see here, the cause of death was registered before the Hutton Inquiry had finished.
‘This is remarkable. To my mind it is evidence that the inquiry into Dr Kelly’s death was window-dressing because the conclusion had already been determined.’
Since January 2004 a group of doctors has worked unstintingly for a fresh inquest to be held into David Kelly’s death because of the blatant shortcomings of the Hutton Inquiry.
They are radiologist Stephen Frost, trauma surgeon David Halpin, vascular surgeon Martin Birnstingl, epidemiologist Andrew Rouse and internal medicine specialist
Christopher Burns-Cox. Their investigations have raised many doubts about the widespread assumption that Dr Kelly killed himself.
A letter they wrote to the Press in January 2004 marked the first time anyone had raised the possibility in the mainstream media of Dr Kelly’s death not being a suicide.
In 2009 they spent almost a year researching and writing a medical report which disputes Hutton’s assertion that Dr Kelly died from haemorrhage after severing the ulnar artery in his left wrist. The doctors argued that the wounds to Dr Kelly’s left wrist would not have caused him to bleed to death.
In January this year they discovered that Lord Hutton made the extraordinary 70-year gagging order. 
Since then they have asked via their lawyers Leigh Day & Co to see the classified records, but under the last Labour Government, the Ministry of Justice - the department which holds them - repeatedly denied them access in the run-up to the last General Election. No reason was given.
Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker, who in 2007 wrote a book suggesting that Dr Kelly was murdered, used the Freedom of Information Act in January to apply to the Ministry of Justice to see the records.

His request was also denied. Using section 41 of the Act - known as an ‘absolute exemption’ - the ministry said it was not obliged to reveal the information.
Mr Baker, now a transport minister in the coalition government, has appealed against this decision. But he and the group of doctors are not the only ones who harbour suspicions about a cover-up of Dr Kelly’s death. 
Only last month one of the doctors, David Halpin, received an anonymous and carefully worded letter from someone claiming to be a relative of a former colleague of David Kelly’s at the Ministry of Defence. 
The correspondent said Kelly’s colleagues were ‘warned off’ attending his funeral - presumably by MoD officials, although this is not made explicit.
Similarly, in his recently published book ‘The End Of The Party’, the political  commentator Andrew Rawnsley (who has close links with the Labour high command) claims that Geoff Hoon, Defence Secretary at the time of Kelly’s death, was so furious about being removed by Tony Blair as Leader of the House of Commons in May 2006 that he wrote out a resignation statement.
According to Rawnsley, ‘he planned to make a speech about the [David] Kelly affair that he told friends could trigger the instant downfall of the Prime Minister’. 
Frustratingly, there are no more details in Rawnsley’s book about what Hoon was referring to - but Hoon visited Dr Kelly’s widow shortly after his death and has never publicly denied this explosive charge.
Equally inexplicable is the attitude of Dr Nicholas Hunt, the forensic pathologist who attended the scene when Dr Kelly’s body was found on Harrowdown Hill.
Dr Hunt’s duty as forensic pathologist is to help uphold the rule of law. In March 2004, after the Hutton Report was published, Dr Hunt contacted Channel 4 News and said he thought a full coroner’s inquest should be held.
Yet mysteriously, he says now that - despite contacting the TV station - he has ‘maintained a silence on this [matter] on behalf of the [Kelly] family for a very long time’.
Tragic: Dr David Kelly's grave
Tragic: Dr David Kelly's grave at St Mary's church in Longworth, Oxfordshire. Several doctors argued that the wounds to his left wrist would not have caused him to bleed to death
Adding further to the case for a proper inquest is a new fascinating claim by a woman who has also worked closely with the doctors and helped Norman Baker with his book.
Rowena Thursby, a former publishing executive who became fascinated with the case and started looking into it, told us that Dr Kelly’s widow, Janice, admitted to her that on the night Dr Kelly was reported missing in July 2003 - but hours before his body was found -Thames Valley Police asked her and her daughters to leave their house and wait in the garden.
It later emerged that while the Kellys were outside, officers stripped wallpaper from their sitting room. Why would they have done that? Could they have been ‘sweeping’ his property for listening devices?
It is certainly a possibility. Despite the fact that the Labour government patronisingly dismissed him as a ‘Walter Mitty character’ and nothing more than a middle ranking
official in the Ministry of Defence, Dr Kelly was arguably the world’s pre-eminent expert on biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction.
We have established that he had access to the highest levels of the security services and was cleared to see the most highly classified intelligence.
The claim that police removed wallpaper from his house has never been confirmed or denied by Thames Valley Police — they refuse to make any comments about the Kelly case.
All these new revelations add weight to the list of unanswered questions surrounding Dr Kelly’s death, such as why were no fingerprints found on the knife with which he allegedly killed himself — even though he wore no gloves.
As with the extraordinary details of the helicopter search, this vital information was only obtained using the Freedom of Information Act almost five years after the Hutton
Inquiry ended. It was not heard at the inquiry.
The doctors insist that concern about Dr Kelly’s death will continue to deepen until a full coroner’s inquest is heard. If one is finally granted, many will expect Tony Blair and Lord Falconer to be called to explain under oath why they went to such lengths to avoid the normal, rigorous and respected course of this country’s law.
Until this happens their reputations will continue to suffer, as will the reputation of the British legal system. The unavoidable conclusion must be that a full coroner’s inquest is the only way the whole truth about the Kelly affair, however uncomfortable, will emerge.
Here's what readers have had to say so far. Why not debate this issue live on our message boards.

The consensus of opinion is that there has been a tremendous cover-up by the last non-government. What is needed - for the country and for Dr. Kelly's family most of all - is a thorough and truthful investigation into this man's demise. Enough of the nuliebour whitewash. The truth MUST come out.

This article makes a compelling case for there to be a genuine, under-oath coroner's inquest into Dr. Kelly's death. Presumably, Dominic Grieve and Ken Clarke are working on the case and preparing to move on it when they are certain they have all the evidence now available to them, short of the actual inquest. And I would think those in the ministries involved who still believe in truth and justice and the rule of law will be forthcoming about what they know now. The Kelly case could trigger the ethical cleansing and institutional revitalization Britain and my own native country, the U.S., so desperately need.

I agree with this article thoroughly a full coroners inquest NOW. Dr Kelly was a servant of the British People and all accounts are that he did us proud in that capacity, at the very least he would want his family to know the truth as surely as that was his job...seeking forensic truths about WMD. It is my view that every soldier who died in Iraq or was injured, every service man and woman who works for us are being held in some kind of a morale and moral limbo while this remains unknown and unknowing.

This matter must not be laid to rest until the truth has been established through correct legal procedures- i.e. an inquest. This Government has the opportunity to get to the clear truth and act accordingly,even if it means prosecutions at the very heart of Government.

Dr Kelly has been proven to be right about WMDs - a fact that the government at the time indubitably knew, or at least sections of it, right to the top. The hounding of David Kelly and the press regarding his opinions and dissemention of them marked the most publicly dishonourable episode ever witnessed in this country. Particularly in view of the fiasco which was taking place in Iraq and continues to do so - an invasion of sovereign territory and the rape of a land and its culture with motivations of extremely dubious nature. The death of thousands of innocents. I could not at the time understand why several government ministers were not impeached, and still do not understand. The handling of this matter has a l w a y s been outside the terms of the laws of this country. Its time this man and his family had justice.

"Until this happens their reputations will continue to suffer, as will the reputation of the British legal system." In my view neither Blair nor Falconer had a reputation worthy of mention from the day they achieved power. We could start by making New Labour a proscribed organisation as the current shadow cabinet share the same evil intent to feather their own nests and damn the electorate or the country.

God bless you Dr David Kelly and may you rest in peace. I have voted labour all my life because I am far to working class not to, but on that note I would like to say that I dearly hope Ex Priminister Blair and his band of weekling men (all those who lost there voices)get their commuppance, allbeit in this life or the next. It is very scary indeed that those you put your trust in and give powers to can act in such a callous manner. Truth will out.

Perhaps the inquiry should extend to find out who convinced Blair to join in the invasion of Iraq. His main reason seems to be WMD and following 9/11 the line Bush took that Iraq was at the centre of world terror. Both of these turned out to be false and Dr. Kelly could have quashed the WMD claim. The truth may well be out there but will we ever be told?

Further too, the speculation of Thames Valley removing wallpaper from the said property would suggest removal of a blood spatter pattern i.e. the cutting of the wrist which again would suggest either being taken away for examination but then you would leave it in situ for phorensics which concludes a cover up as the body was obvioulsy moved to the woods!!!!

We have to ask what sort of society we live in , Dr Kelley was one of about 100 micro-biologists who have died in mysterious circumstances since early this Century . Add to that the unexplained deaths in the USA since 911 of people who opposed the Patriot act or war (Senator Paul Wellstone and all his family to name but one event), Anthrax made at US military labs sent to dissenting politicians and such events as Timothy Hampton a British nuclear energy expert working on disarming Iran who plunged 40 metres to his death at the UN building in Vienna and it doesn't end there. These events are not isolated and Dr Kelly's death needs investigating to find out just who is orchestrating the wider agenda of political manipulation enforced it appears by death squads. Sadly when you look at the new Government it is still tied to the same rich powerbrokers that Labour was and who pays the piper usually calls the tune - not much hope of ever getting to the truth when the fix is already in.

I sincerely hope that this matter is resolved before any of the team who were complicit in David Kelly's apparent suicide are able to shuffle off out of harm's way. Along the way, it might be an idea for Ken Clarke to consider repealing the amendments to the Treason law, just in case it might come in handy.

The stench of the New Labour administration will stay with us for decades. There does not exist a group more arrogant in their self belief than lawyers and no generation so self obsessed as the Baby Boomers. This was a government dominated by Baby Boomer lawyers. Add to this their Anglophobic self loathing, instilled by an education and media establishment dominated by champagne Marxists and our slide into decadence and disorder was inevitable. In past generations many would have stood trial for treason. They destroyed the faith the British had in their political class for generations, if not forever.

It saddens me that we have members of our society that are prepared to act out instructions from above without question. THe treatment of Dr Kelly was abominable, even if it was suidicide.

Blaire is a religious person. That being the case he knows the consequences of committing such sin if these kind of stories are true. Either that or he was incredibly stupid not to know what was going on. In a kind of warped way the fact he is a "peace envoy" in the middle east must be some kind of pennace, and make him an ongoing target for radicalists. Who would want to be spending the rest of their political lives in such a situation?. I always thought Blaire was more suited to foreign affairs anyway. Lets not forget though the good he did, like brokering the peace deal in Northern Ireland. of course his palce in history will always be the last worst thing he did, to lead our country into an illegal and unnecessary war in Iraq. AS for this story about Dr Kelly we have already had the Hutton enquiry, but I cannot remember if anything was said about Dr Kelly in the questionsing of Mr Blaire et al. Guess that means it was not a conspiracy after all....

In the words of the last Government that they used to promote ID cards "If you have nothing to hide,then you have nothing to fear" This should be used to get ALL the details public and if the last Government have anything to fear then I expect to see Tony Blair and those who headed the operation with regards to the whole David Kelly affair in a court answering charges by a Judge who is not tainted by politics,who still believes the law is blind and goes where the evidence leads him/her. This whole episode stinks of very dodgy politics and those persons who sneak around in the shadows. I find it hard to swallow that several of our weapons inspectors have died in recent years with unexplained circumstances. The obvious one is David Kelly,but there are also 2 others that have met their deaths in suspicious circumstances whilst dealing with the Iran problem.

No matter how much we cry out for justice for David Kelly and his family the government machine had it's way under labour so scared were they that the truth about WMD would be revealed and that we were not under threat of a 45 minute warning. Blair and his cohorts aka Falcolner who bought the dome for a measily sum and that attorney general Goldsmith knew the story, they were part of it. I shall never as long as I live forget Mr Kelly's face at that trumped up inquiry and the absolute devastation mirrored upon it. It is right and proper that the new coalition government get to the heart of this and put on trial the wrongdoers.

I've always considered this to be a murder and coverup at the highest level, and think even David Kelly expected this, when he commented that he would probably be found dead in the woods. Why anyone would interpret this comment as a statement about suicide is beyond me. I did complain to my MP in the wake of the 70 year gagging order, but was fobbed off with the usual "it's to save the Kelly family from upset" line.

I've always thought this stunk to high heaven. After Dr Kelly went missing, I watched the news avidly. On the day he was found, Meridian reported on the lunch time news -that Dr Kelly had been found & two paramedics who attended the scene said he was proped against a tree with 'moniters' attached to his body. This to me was a very strange statement - did he attach them himself to let himself know he'd killed himself? Who then got to him & attached them before the paramedics arrived? And if that was the case - who would be out walking & think to take such equipment? When hubby got in from work, I told him what had been reported & we both looked at each other in disbelief - so we both made sure to watch the afternoon news - sure enough it was repeated exactly as on the lunch time bulletin. But after that day - those reported 'facts' were never mentioned again - even though the case was mulled over time & time again. I happened to be on a forum shortly after and said pretty much the same

It was if whoever it was was trying to hush me up - but I stood my ground & reiterated the facts. Told him as he'd called me a liar to go & check with Meridian about the 2 news items. He finally came back - but still tried to make out, I was lying. Said it was a mistake by the paramedics etc. any old excuse or coverup to try & get me to say I was mistaken.He was so forceful, that if I'd only been the one to see it - I might just have backed down - he was that convincing. Talk about men in black coats - he never appeared on that forum again. Oh! and those two paramedics disappeared - never to be seen again! I'd have thought what they said on TV would have been crucial in the enquiry.... I have thought since - if I had been Mrs Kelly, I know whatever threats had been put to me - I would have spoken out if only for my husbands sake.

Anyone who disagrees with the account from the labour government is a Tory and ways can be found to, retrain their thoughts, they have the means. Mr Blair the great leader and Mr Cambell and Mr Mandelsohn spoke the truth. Mr Kelly was just unfortunate and we had better accept that, in 70years the youngest voter will be 88 and will anyone care apart from Mr Kelly's grandchildren. An enquiry will tarnish the memory of the great leader Blair and also Cambell and Mandy. Reputations and earnings are at stake all for the sake of a dead man, this was more important to labour.

I don’t believe in ghosts, fairies or alien abductions. I do believe that that when you calmly and rationally consider the facts surrounding this case the verdict of suicide becomes more unlikely as the days go on. When Hutton’s questionably legal gagging is lifted or runs out I believe the verdict will be changed to at least death by misadventure or by persons unknown. As memories fade what will be missing from consideration are the atmospherics of the time. At that time we had rabid, foul mouthed spin doctors tearing down establishments and demanding the heads of anyone who challenged the myths they were trying to create. The BBC was emasculated for telling the truth and a million people who marched in various protests against the waste of human life were ignored. At that time a lots of those in the intelligence agencies who had supported Bliar were desperately trying to avoid prosecution for collusion in war crimes. Was he murdered? I think so.

This is the ideal way for David Cameron to show that he means what he says about openness - he should overturn the 70 year ban on opening the records and make the findings on Dr Kelly's death totally public. I do not accept the verdict of suicide, and I think it's an outrage that Dr. Kelly's own family have been excluded from knowing the truth. There can be no reason for this secrecy unless there's a coverup involved, with the aim of protecting someone very senior. I hope there are people out there who are currently quaking in their boots at the possibility of a re-opening of the case.

Thank you for this excellent article into an almost-forgotten tragedy. I recall watching the slimeball Blair on TV at the time dismissing poor David Kelly in his usual smarmy, self-important manner, while an interview with Dr. Kelly showed a haggard and deeply worried man. I literally cried when I heard that Kelly had supposedly killed himself, a victim of the worst kind of institutionalised bullying, for which Blair should have resigned if he had a shred of honour. Of course, the disgusting little creep hasn't, and so he goes on to collect millions, no doubt hoping that David Kelly will be forgotten. The idea that Dr. Kelly was actually murdered is appalling and the case needs to be investigated fully ASAP. Congratulations to all those who have pursued this matter, and please keep up the good work.

I'm ex security. reviewed this case in depth. Dr Kelly was murdered. Likeliest cause was partly, an Iraqi hit group who had sworn to silence troublemakers. But, this group might have acted with another group in UK. Quite wrongly, Kelly was 'outed ' That put him in extreme danger and those who 'outed' him should be punished. One point I have kept making ever since the sexed up documents. Labour never took up my point. Campbell was never security cleared to see any documents including the ones he penned 17 amendments to. He bullied JIC head, John Scarlett into the changes. Who was Campbell liaising with? Blair? Later, Blair promoted Scarlett into a job for which he was neither eligible or even, on the shortlist. Seniors in MI 5 at the time were privately aghast. I for one will keep pushing for the truth to come out.

It is suddenly possible that a government were complicit in a crime and that crime MURDER -nobody has been charged but the people of this country have grave doubts as to the reported suicide and can contemplate such previously preposterous conclusion. At the risk of being a conspiracy theorist nutcase I still am not convinced by the Dianna outcome --if the nulab government can get away with what they have then they surely could have had involvement in Diannas death . She after all threatened the establishment in many ways not least by undermining (no pun intended) the landmine trade she was fighting against. There are things afoot in this world that we are not awake to. Try Zeitgeist just for one eye opener.

There were over one million of us protesting in London prior to the UK going to war in Iraq but the government took no notice whatsoever. To this day we do not understand the motive. As was later declared, regime change was the reason but then why select Iraq when the world is littered with injustice and brutal forms of governance. In International law, regime change is illegal anyway. This dreadful affair involving Dr. Kelly further deepens the mystery as to why we joined the US in attacking Iraq. It was not for oil as oil producers need to sell their oil as much as consumers need to buy it. The last 13 years have been a disaster for the UK in every way and heads do need to fall, albeit retrospectively.

But wouldn't it be good if a miracle happened & Blair, Hoon, Mandleson etc., were put to the ultimate test & given lie dectectors. Don't know about weapons of mass destruction - I'm sure they would blow those machines sky high. Dr Kelly committing suicide just doesn't wash - he was looking forward that year to walking one of his beloved daughters down the aisle. He was a scientist he just would not choose that route to die by. Logic. Can't help remembering Burrells words - when the Queen was supposed to have told him, there are dark forces out there & things we have no conception of. (Or words to that effect.) And why didn't we hear anymore from his American friends - who stoutledly stood up for him & told us he would not have acted that way. So many unanswered questions - not only stinks but shows a rotten to the core liabore government.

And nothing here about the announcement of his death by the police (later denied) BEFORE he was "found" dead. (Oops) And nothing about a powerful secret services radio signals post set up in Dr Kelly's garden - again, before he was found dead. It was a radio signal that couldn't be intercepted. Why was this needed? And why were the ONLY messages known to be sent from it, to Tony Blair updating him on events, while he was in his government plane, on an overseas mission? And nothing about a female colleague of Dr Kelly's who was mysteriously found dead, having "jumped" through her bedroom window, apparently having been warned off. She called someone to say if she was found dead to report her fears. That person has also been shut up. This whole saga stinks to high heaven, and BLAIR is one stinky fish in the centre. That seventy year gag order should be lifted forthwith before any witnesses are disappeared.

Nothing significant about the statement “found “ dead on the certificate, where the exact place of death is not witnessed or verifiable. Removal of wallpaper would suggest a forensic motive, or to search for or reveal a known hidden element. It’s highly likely that Doc Kelly was simultaneously being monitored and protected; whilst also the target of various groups. The most effective 'hit' being where doubt is cast, allowing the perpetrators to lay suspicion at the door of the opposition or the enemy. The question being, who got to him first, and last.

Soldiers did shoot unarmed protesters as they fled from the gunfire. But them we all knew that anyway. However the verdict was a surprise. It would not surprise me if a new enquiry takes 38 years. I think most people accept the government is corrupt. I think most of us are amazed by Camerons openness. The fact that his lips move and he seems to be telling the truth is more than I can handle. If he instigates an enquiry that finds that Dr Kelly was murdered I will have to question my own sanity. I am so used to everything they do being a big lie that I will be wondering what the big thing is they are hiding if they let the little things like Dr Kelly and Bloody Sunday slip out.

Don't feel too bad... there's always another nutty conspiracy theory around every corner..... - Jack Russell.., Yorkshire..England, 26/6/2010 12:29 ------------------------ Jack I agree with you. But I feel it depends on the length of time that passes. An equiry this year will prove that he killed himself and them dumped himself by the woods. However in 38 years time we will discover that he was murdered by some people who were themselves murdered years later so no justice is possible. I can think of two reasons why there are so many nutty conspiracy theories; 1. people love conspiracy theories 2. too much remains unanswered I suggest you look into the rumours and see if they are supported by facts rather than judge it as nutty because conpiricy theorists are nutty.

Ken Clarke and Dominic Grieve, may not be suffering from Decision Deficit Disorder, but trying to ensure that they have all the evidence possible,prior to the announcement.
