BBC News - 7/7 bombs acts of 'merciless savagery', inquests told I ask you to consider just 21 years ago. 22.9.89 eleven Royal Marines murdered by an IRA bombing at Deal RM Barracks. There were warnings given to Kent Police with 26 IRA related lines of inquiry within them. But HM Coroner did not rigorously examine whether the deaths were preventable. In 1995 a child patient in post op ICU at Guys died when power was cut off the hospital (by rogue switching control of the hospital backup generator system) followed by failure of the hospital emergemncy generator cutting power to life support. The Coroner did not examine if the death was preventable and Kent Police refused crime complaints and refused to cross refer the death case with their Deal Bombing inquiry. Arguments were made (by the man who gave Kent Plod the warnings on Deal Barracks and on Guys they ignored) to European Court of Human Rights and to UK Govt that Inquests are a part of our Common Law and international commitments to protect the lives of our citizens. That Coroners should examine whether deaths were preventable. That procedures should change. Now you see an Inquest examining a terrorist act to determine if it was preventable. Good.
