Unfortunately and unsurprisingly, the MP in question
is not a Labour one, but Liberal Democrat MP Norman
Baker, who has written a book on Dr Kelly, who he believes
was murdered by supporters of the war, possibly exiled
Looking at the evidence, if he was murdered by Iraqis,
they were surely given a large helping hand by UK agents.
At any rate, it seems that most Labour MPs are content
to sit back and allow whitewash inquiries to settle
Maybe they are afraid that by speaking out they too
will be endangering their lives.
I keep saying we have a government of cowards and traitors.

David Kelly’s mysterious death should be investigated
by a coroner to establish whether the weapons inspector
was murdered, the Government has been told.
The demand was made in a letter to Attorney General
Baroness Scotland following revelations in The Mail
on Sunday that question the Hutton Inquiry’s finding
After 59-year-old Dr Kelly’s body was discovered in
woods near his Oxfordshire home in July 2003, a coroner’s
inquiry into his death was controversially halted by
Lord Hutton took over the investigation and concluded
the scientist slashed his left wrist and took an overdose
of painkillers after being named as the source of a
BBC report on the Iraq war.
But after the weapons inspector’s close friend Mai
Pederson cast doubt in this newspaper last week
on his ability to kill himself – she says his right
hand was so weak following an accident that he would
have been unable to cut himself fatally – Liberal Democrat
MP Norman Baker has written to the Attorney General
demanding a coroner’s inquest.
Mr Baker, who has written a book on Mr Kelly, believes
he was murdered by supporters of the war, with exiled
Iraqi dissidents heading his list of suspects.

In his letter to Baroness Scotland, Mr Baker argues
that Lord Hutton’s finding of suicide would not have
been endorsed by a coroner’s court because it could
not be proved ‘beyond reasonable doubt’.
Since the Hutton report was published it has also been
revealed that there were no fingerprints on the knife
Dr Kelly is supposed to have used.
Also, he suffered from a disorder that made it hard
for him to swallow pills – and when a heat-seeking
search aircraft flew over the spot where his corpse
was found shortly after his supposed time of death it
did not pick up any sign of a body.
Some experts suggest he was killed elsewhere.
Ms Pederson, an American military linguist, has also
revealed that Dr Kelly told her that he was on an Iraqi
hit list and if Britain invaded the country ‘he would
be found dead in the woods’.
Mr Baker writes: ‘Lord Hutton appeared to have decided
that Dr Kelly had committed suicide before his inquiry
had even begun, and limited the evidence given accordingly.
‘I argue, therefore, that it is clear beyond doubt
that there was an insufficiency of inquiry, as a result
of both the nature of the inquiry itself, but more particularly
by the way Lord Hutton interpreted his role.
‘There is much more that has been uncovered, which
taken together suggests very strongly that Lord Hutton’s
conclusions are unsafe, and that justice demands that
there be a proper inquest.’
