Dr David Kelly...draw a line under it?
Today Dominic Grieve, the Attorney General who has spent almost a year reviewing the suspicious death of Dr David Kelly in 2003, has refused to grant an inquiry into his death.
A group of doctors got together and using their medical knowledge declared that it was impossible for David Kelly to have committed suicide using the method outlined by an enquiry conducted by Lord Hutton. He then swiftly buried all the evidence for 70 years so that none of it could be examined in subsequent enquiries.
Now the Coalition have compounded the suspicions surrounding the death by refusing further investigation. It almost confirms the internet rumours that Dr Kelly was 'bumped off' by agents who work for corporate bodies because he was a nuisance. It is however, clear that neither the NoLab government under Messrs Brown and Blair or the Coalition under David Cameron dares to carry out an investigation that would dispel the rumours.
Therer is a hideous smell emanating from No 10 Downing Street and I doubt if it will go away.
