70 year gag put on vital evidence on the Dr Kelly

The klaxons are ringing on my conspiracy alarm!!!

Ok so I don't really have a "conspiracy alarm" as such, and if I did have one it wouldn't really go off very frequently. Whenever someone claims there is a conspiracy or cover up I scoff and scorn and all too often label them as members of the tin foil hat wearing society.

However this time I think something really does stink, because clearly there is information that is not only vital for a family who are still looking for answers, but the public too.

Since the Chilcot inquiry is in full swing and all sorts of questions are being asked it is no surprise that there are some who wish to suppress the truth. As they said in the "The X Files" the truth is out there, but getting to it is hardly ever a straight path.

Obviously at some point the inquiry and whoever was investigating and trying to put the pieces together got terribly close because now it seems Lord Hutton who chaired the first inquiry has put on a gag on medical records which include a postmortem on Dr David Kelly.

How long for you ask? was it for a decade, two decades, three perhaps? Nope, seven, I say again seven decades. I imagine they chose seven decades in the hope that whoever is asking the tough questions now will be dead in seventy years (with a bit of luck) and in seventy years there won't be anyone to ask tough questions.

Well hopefully I will still be around in seventy years time, (although I will be in my early nineties) and I will hope to live to see the day that justice is done. No doubt by the time a decision is made all those who were responsible will be long dead and will have lived a comfortable retirement. Some might have even tried to gain immunity through some elaborate deal.

I would very much like to see Lord Hutton in the spot light explaining his actions,and grilled (preferably by Jeremy Paxman) to no end.

Of course I imagine when that happens it won't be front page as the front page story will be "Hell Freezes Over!"

The key points about the Kelly fiasco are that the government adjourned a coroner's court unconstitutionally and that they used the Hutton Inquiry as an excuse to witch hunt the anti-war media (See Chilcot, Hutton and the death of Dr David Kelly). This witch hunt was also outside the bounds of the amendment to the coroner's act under which the Hutton Inquiry was instituted. As a replacement for a coroner's court, the Hutton Inquiry had no legal authority to lock up the details of the investigation for 70 years.

What do we do when the government deliberately abandons the rule of law?
Parliament is the guardian of the British constitution but the MPs seem to be corrupt. They allowed "Lord" Falconer to become a political head of the justice system and just lay supine when the government co-opted a law about train crash inquiries to be used to whitewash the Kelly affair.

The free British press is also supposed to guard our democratic liberties but they are mute. Why?
