Downing Street rejects 'Walter Mitty' report

Downing Street has distanced itself from a report that the government saw weapons expert Dr David Kelly as a "Walter Mitty" character.
Tony Blair's spokesman was commenting on a newspaper report which quoted a "senior Whitehall source" as saying Dr Kelly had misled the government and BBC reporter Andrew Gilligan over Iraq's weapons programmes.

Walter Mitty is a character in a story by US author James Thurber who fantasised about being a hero.

The report in the Independent newspaper said Dr Kelly had not revealed the extent of his contacts with Mr Gilligan to Ministry of Defence officials.

And it quoted a source as saying the scientist had told Mr Gilligan more than he would have known.

Downing St have denied they said he was a Walter, but the seed is planted with the Sun readers now isn't it?

Poor old sod
