When the Attorney General of the United Kingdom stands up in the House of Commons and issues a transparently inaccurate statement about the evidence relating to a suspicious death you can be sure that there is something very important indeed that has to be covered up.
Today in the House of Commons the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve QC, lied with a fluency for which, in a sense, he must be commended.
Dominic Grieve is not so stupid as to believe the absolutist nonsense about the evidence that he uttered at the dispatch box.
He does, however, appear to be stupid enough to imagine that his flagrant dishonesty about the evidence relating to the suspicious death of Dr. David Kelly will carry the day.
What is so important to cover up that caused the Attorney General to be so flagrantly dishonest?
The murder of Dr. David Kelly.
What is so important about the murder of Dr. Kelly?
The reason(s) it was carried out. The persons and organisation which carried it out.
In a country where the most senior Law Officer of the Government seeks to conceal a murder what options are open to an honest citizen?
Passive acceptance is not a legitimate option.
The evidence is a powerful weapon that not even a dishonest Attorney General can keep at bay indefinitely.
