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.
