Aliens hiding in gardens of Buckingham Palace every other day

Buckingham Palace Garden 001 300x225 Aliens hiding in gardens of Buckingham Palace every other dayJust briefly, to catch up with BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning, on which I discussed Norman Baker’s move to the Home Office with Mark Pack, the Liberal Democrat blogger (from 2′40″45).

The BBC played a clip of Baker from a programme called The Conspiracy Files in which he talked about how he had been told that the death of David Kelly was a “wet disposal”, a “hurried job” in which he was “killed in a hurried way”.

Pack’s reaction to this was to admit that Baker had “slightly curious, eccentric even, views about the death of David Kelly”, but it was “not as if he is out there every day saying aliens are hidden in the gardens of Buckingham Palace”.

My reaction was rather less indulgent. My views are summarised here and here.

    You are protesting far too much about conspiracy theorists, Mr. Rentoul. I am at a complete loss as to what the reason might be!

    Have you not seen Peter Oborne’s “complaint” in the DT, pork?

    About as likely as anyone being able to round up 20 white cats in a blizzard using a walking-stick.

    Yes. Hmmm.
