In his postmortem report of 25th July 2003, Post mortem examination report, Nicholas Hunt gives the following causes of death:
lb. Incised Wounds to the Left Wrist
2. Co-proxamol ingestion and coronary artery atherosclerosis
It is well known that a number of doctors have disputed whether or not it is possible to bleed to death from transection of the ulnar artery.
But if you are to believe Dr. Hunt, you have to conclude that David Kelly bled to death in "minutes" from transection of the ulnar artery and surrounding tissue.
Point 9 of his conclusions (on page 14 of the postmortem report) reads:
9 Many of the injuries over the left wrist show evidence of a well-developed vital reaction suggesting that they have been inflicted over a reasonable period of time (minutes rather than seconds or hours) before death.
Take a moment to consider the implications of that assertion.
"Minutes" before death Dr. Hunt asks us to believe that David Kelly was still cutting his wrist!
If David Kelly was doing that there is only one plausible explanation - that the wrist wasn't bleeding enough.
But if the wrist wasn't bleeding enough when those cuts were made "minutes" before death, Dr. Hunt asks us to believe that David Kelly died of haemorrhage over "minutes".
I'm sorry, I just don't believe what Dr. Hunt is asking us to accept.
