The Death of David Kelly - A shameful and appalling cover-up by a dishonest Attorney General

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.


  1. I could not agree more Andrew, when a government stoops so low as to murder one of it's own so that it may go to war, (which is what I believe has occured here) I believe we have crossed a moral threshold from which it is mightily difficult to return.

    As a citizen of this country it bothers me most significantly. I hope the truth will out eventually.

  2. Harrow,

    I'm hopeful that the truth will finally out, notwithstanding Dominic Grieve's shameful performance in Parliament today.

  3. It will be fascinating to see what response Norman Baker gives to Grieve's statement.

    Also, I am surprised he has not already commented on the information from TVP about the helicopter flights, because it is contrary to what he was told by a Labour Minister when he was researching his book.

  4. Geoaunnes,

    Strictly speaking, I don't think that Norman Baker was told anything that was actually untrue.

    It is, of course, the reality that Norman Baker wasn't told the whole truth.

    At least that's how I read the written answers from a few years back.

  5. Andrew,

    Baker was told that the helicopter did not come from RAF Benson, but from Luton. As far as I can tell from the FOI answers you got, they say that the helicopters were indeed from RAF Benson.
