On 9th February 2010, Chilcot's Cheating Us: Britain's First Genuinely Public Inquiry, I wondered if internet technologies might enable a new quality of questioning of governments:
Inquiry of the Government by the people for the people
I think that a beginning has been made.
Much less has been achieved so far, perhaps, than I'd hoped back in February 2010.
But, equally, more cages have been rattled than I'd feared might be the case.
Will inquiry of the Government with respect to an illegal war and the suspicious death of David Kelly be more than pin-pricks?
Time will tell.
I can't imagine that Dominic Grieve or Sara Thornton are entirely comfortable with how things are developing.
Dominic Grieve and Sara Thornton should have resigned when they first became aware of the corruption that they have become involved with.ReplyDelete
They chose not to.
Parliament now has to decide how to deal with Grieve and his dishonest June 9th statement. Having a corrupt Attorney General is one thing but when the public and MP's know he is corrupt and have the evidence, that is another matter.
As it stands Parliament has become corrupted, our democracy in tatters and a justice system that is worthless.
Each day this situation is permitted to endure is a day closure to rebellion.
