    Geez mate we have another eleven episodes to get through?

  • John Rentoul

    No, I’m going backwards. That’s about it.

    Good! we can now get back to the death of Dr David Kelly, why do you think his body was was found with the left leg of his jeans pulled up to mid calf? And what was operation Mason all about?

  • Ciaran Rehill

    Not that I am taking J.R’s side but the Kelly thing has run it’s course. All documents (as per usual) are classified until 2110 (or the next revolution) and it boils down to A. One believes he was murdered or B. One thinks he committed suicide. As there is not enough EVIDENCE on way or the other (until said docs are disclosed or Julian “Mass Rapist” Assange leaks) we must guess. If it was suicide why not release the documents? Finally I wish one and all here a Happy New Year.

    Come come Ron, if there is not enough evidence one way or the other, then a suicide “verdict” is unsound and as such and inquest should be performed to examine the facts and record an open verdict or recommend a murder investigation.

    Then we might learn; why the body was moved, wht the police lied at the inquiry and why Hutton misled the inquiry.

    But I agree with your sentiment for all to have a Happy New Year.

    Why not bring in that chap who did the autopsy for Tomlinson? (Not a scratch on ‘im, must have killed hisself!”

  • LancashireLad

    Ron we’ve run out of replies.

    As I understand it the first (government) post mortem concluded that it “indicated that he had suffered a heart attack brought on by coronary artery disease, and had died of natural causes.”

    The second (private) postmortem “indicated that Tomlinson had died from internal bleeding caused by a blunt force trauma to the abdomen, in association with cirrhosis of the liver. A third postmortem was arranged by the defence team of the accused officer, PC Simon Harwood; the third pathologist agreed that the cause of death was internal bleeding”

    I don’t know why the HSE haven’t been brought in to sort everthing out.

  • Ciaran Rehill

    “It did not happen, the Tomlinson family hallucinated it, the CCTV (missing) and Guardian footage is all fake.” Sickest of all was plod “The killers were Anarchists in stolen police uniforms”. Muck fee that ranks with Ian Huntley’s “They had nose bleeds and died”. It is the rank crassness that they treat us with. Finally, I was banned on the Indy today. All I said was in 2011 we ought to have Zero tolerance for a judiciary that passes custodial sentences for political “offences”. Okay maybe it was phrased more robustly..Victory in ‘11!
