The Death of David Kelly - David Cameron misleading Parliament and concealing a murder

This post consists mostly of a communication sent yesterday to Number 10 Downing Street.

On 18th May 2011 David Cameron indicated that the "inquest" into the death of Dr. David Kelly was "fairly clear" and it was not "necessary to take that case forward". See The Death of David Kelly - House of Commons Hansard on PMQs of 18th May 2011 for the question from Sir Peter Tapsell and David Cameron's response.

Since no proper inquest has ever taken place into the death of Dr. David Kelly it is my view that the Prime Minister misled the House of Commons on 18th May 2011 at Prime Ministers Questions.

The effect of the Prime Minister misleading the House of Commons was to assist in the concealment of the murder of Dr. David Kelly.

Prime Ministers Questions today (8th June) is the first opportunity that David Cameron has had to correct his false statement made on 18th May.

And that is why I wrote to him and to his advisers Craig Oliver and Steve Field to draw the attention of the Prime Minister's team to his false statement.

Here is the text of yesterday's email:

[This email is an advance copy of a letter to be delivered by hand today to 10 Downing Street. It is being sent to Craig Oliver and Steve Field by email, as well as to other interested Number 10 staff and other potentially interested parties.]

Dear Mr. Cameron,

Misleading of Parliament and concealment of murder of Dr. David Kelly

I write, as a doctor familiar with the forensic and other evidence indicating that Dr. David Kelly was murdered, to express my profound concern at your having misled the House of Commons on 18th May 2011 in your answer to Sir Peter Tapsell at Prime Ministers Questions.

There has been no proper inquest into the death of Dr. David Kelly, contrary to the answer you gave to Sir Peter Tapsell.

Nor is it “fairly clear” that the findings of the Hutton Report are reliable and that it is “not necessary to take that case forward”.

In my view you misled the House of Commons on 18th May.

A primary question is whether you did so wittingly or unwittingly.

The effect of your misleading the House was to pre-empt the Attorney General’s formal consideration of an application under Section 13 of the Coroners Act 1988, to request that a new inquest be required.

It occurs to me that you were perhaps not fully briefed or otherwise prepared to respond to Sir Peter’s important question.

If such is the case I would urge you to take advantage of Prime Ministers Questions on Wednesday 8th June to apologise to the House for unwittingly misleading Parliament.

Should you fail to do so it would be my view that you thereby indicate that you wish there to be no inquest into the murder of Dr. David Kelly.

Such a course of action on your part is likely, in my view, to be a festering sore throughout your premiership.

Tony Blair’s Government covered up the murder of Dr. Kelly by means of the charade that was the Hutton Inquiry. Almost eight years later the controversy rumbles on.

The forensic evidence that I have presented recently to the Attorney General convinces me, as a doctor, that David Kelly was murdered.

It is now over 7 months since I reported my suspicions that Dr. Kelly was murdered to Thames Valley Police (URN 514 of 28/10/10). Thames Valley Police have failed to investigate.

The inactivity by Thames Valley Police is something I interpret as being participation by that organisation in the cover-up of Dr. Kelly’s murder.

Together with new evidence indicating that now-retired Assistant Chief Constable Michael Page lied to the Hutton Inquiry about fingerprint evidence the role of Thames Valley Police in the cover-up, both in 2003 and in 2010-11, is a matter of great concern.

At the risk of stating the obvious, the evidence is that the Police force in your constituency is covering-up a murder.

My concerns are serious and the result of many hours of study of the evidence. In addition to correspondence with the Attorney General and Chief Constable Sarah Thornton of Thames Valley Police, I have progressively been putting the medical, forensic and other evidence in the public domain on my “Chilcot’s Cheating Us” blog.

I am, of course, willing to forward relevant evidence directly to you, should you indicate that you wish to receive it.

If you persist in attempting to cover-up the murder of Dr. Kelly it is my expectation that this matter will haunt you throughout your premiership.

I therefore publicly urge you not to join the cover-up of the murder of Dr. David Kelly.

Yours sincerely

(Dr) Andrew Watt BA, BMedBiol(Pathology), MBChB, MD(Hons), DipPharmMed, FRCP(Ed)

I don't expect Mr. Cameron to apologise to the House of Commons today, although I'm clear that he ought to. I simply don't have a high enough opinion of David Cameron's integrity to have such an expectation.
