Chilcot or Poppycock?
I wonder especially after learning that the evidence relating to the death of Government weapons inspector David Kelly is to be kept secret for 70 years. A highly unusual ruling by Lord Hutton, who chaired the inquiry into Dr Kelly’s death, means medical records including the post-mortem report will remain classified until after all those with a direct interest in the case are dead, the Mail on Sunday reported. And a 30-year secrecy order has been placed on written records provided to Lord Hutton’s inquiry which were not produced in evidence. The Ministry of Justice said decisions on the evidence were a matter for Lord Hutton. But a solitary Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker, who has conducted his own investigations into Dr Kelly’s death, described the order as “astonishing”.
As I write this wondering as you do, where I am going with it, the media on the internet have started the build-up to Friday’s proceedings. The Daily Telegraph backing the powers that be with an igniting report that thousands of anti-war protesters and Muslim extremists are expected to line the streets and outside the inquiry in protest against his decision to invade Iraq. They also say that Intelligence officers are also reported to have picked up “domestic chatter” suggesting his appearance warrants a high state of alert, what’s the problem here then, are we not already on a so-called terrorist level of severe, meaning an attack is "highly likely".
Oh what times do we dwell in! We invade other countries and then for the next decade the political establishment aided and abated by the mass media label many innocent people as the potential enemy, extremist or worst terrorists!
