Tories will reopen probe into Dr Kellys suicide

#2
Ah no they won't IMHO, can, worms....over everyone and everything.....watch the term "in the public interest" get used when (if) they win the election on why they can't do it......of course thats IMHO only.

I hope they've fully thought through what they will do with what they find out and all the ramifications of the truth, whatever that is. It would have been better to have got to power and had a good look behind the scenes before they announced anything.

I would welcome an open inquiry into this very tragic matter. There will be security considerations no doubt, but there are questions into David kelly's untimely death which should be answered. I think we owe it to his memory, his family and to the public to get to the bottom of this entire matter.

More to the point, have they asked his family?

‘This is something I would review if in Government as I am conscious this is a matter where the public have not been reassured that the Hutton Inquiry satisfactorily resolved the matter.’

We shall see. World of difference between "will reopen" and "would review"

Why are you hiding behind the late Dr Kelly's family to hide your obvious disquiet at this development?

A senior Conservative MP has signalled that the investigation into the death of Government weapons inspector Dr David Kelly should be reopened because the public ‘have not been reassured’ by the official verdict that he killed himself
Mr Grieve adds: ‘This is something I would review if in Government as I am conscious this is a matter where the public have not been reassured that the Hutton Inquiry satisfactorily resolved the matter.’
Mr Grieve’s endorsement of the doctors’ campaign could pave the way for a full inquest into Dr Kelly’s death if the Tories win the General Election
Agree with P_G, they won't at all. All very ambiguous, nothing firm and sounds like electioneering to me.

Yes, of course :roll:

You'd think if there was anything wrong with the verdict the family would be first in line to demand a new investigation though, wouldn't you?

What you actually mean is its not in your paymasters best interests for this to be reopened.

Still, we shouldn't be surprised, hiding behind the dead and their families has been Neues Arbiets SOP for over a decade. Never mind, you'll have plenty of time on your hands when you get your P45 in two months time.

You are quite right, of course. If the people who knew Dr Kelly best object to raking over the coals then that should be the end of the matter. Thank you for reminding me that behind politics there is always the human dimension.

Yes of course, I'm paid by Labour, as is everyone who doesn't agree with you :roll:

Fancy answering my question instead of spinning and blustering your way out of it?

I'd be surprised if any government decided to reopen the inquest in Dr Kelly actual demise.

On the otherhand, I can easily see a Conservative government looking into whether New Labour political spin to save New Labour political reputations pushed Dr Kelly to take his own life.

The highly suntanned one would not be happy at any poking around methinks.

Mandleson's been poking arond for years and he seems to have benefited from his poking rather nicely.

Anyway, any enquiry into the effects of political spin on Dr Kelly's death would/should rightly focus on Campbell and others in the inner and outer office rather than the PM's personal office.

Nail on the head there Whitecity. The constant assasination conspiracy theory debate around Dr. Kelly's death is distracting to say the least. What seems to me, the real issue gets ignored; that the Government pushed a man to take his own life because he tried to bring to the public's notice that they were being misled into a war.

Ah, the paid slime is still about, and does not welcome any techincal medical statement by a group of doctors being taken seriously. After all they are intellectuals, and therefore should be taken away and liquidated in order to develop Socialism. Like Dr Kelly.
