Who Killed David Kelly? - The silence about Dr. Kelly’s arm injury : Collective amnesia? Collective stupidity? Or Conspiracy of Silence?

I intend to construct many of the chapters of "Who Killed David Kelly?" as questions.

Hopefully many of these question-posing chapters will be fairly self-contained.

One likely chapter will be entitled something like, "The silence about Dr. Kelly’s arm injury : Collective amnesia? Collective stupidity? Or Conspiracy of Silence?".

The official story is that David Kelly supposedly killed himself by incising his left wrist with a knife.

David Kelly, like most human beings, had two arms.

To incise his left wrist (if, indeed, he did) Dr. Kelly would have to hold the knife in his right hand.

Dr. Kelly, inconveniently for the official story, had fractured his right elbow in a fall from a horse and according to the only witness publicly to comment on the issue couldn't cut a steak with a knife.

Was Dr. Kelly, then, capable of holding a pruning knife in his right hand so as to cut his left wrist?

That seems a crucial question that any competent and honest inquiry would address.

Yet the Hutton Inquiry is totally silent on the existence of the injury or its possible implications for the official "suicide" story.

Lord Hutton doesn't ask about it. Nor do the senior or junior counsel to the Hutton Inquiry.

Why not?

But it is not only the Hutton Inquiry team who are silent on the issue.

Take the witnesses one by one.

Dr. Nicholas Hunt, forensic pathologist, observed an operative scar on the right elbow but fails to consider its significance. Nor does he pause to ask if Dr. Kelly had any functional limitation to the power in his right arm. Very surprising indeed if Dr. Hunt was a forensic pathologist who was supposedly competent and honest.

Janice Kelly, Dr. Kelly's widow, omits mention of the right arm injury at the Hutton Inquiry.

Rachel Kelly, the only one of Dr. Kelly's daughters to give oral evidence to the Hutton Inquiry, omits mention of the right arm injury in her evidence to the Hutton Inquiry.

Dr. Malcolm Warner, Dr. Kelly's General Practitioner, also omits mention of the right elbow injury in his evidence to the Hutton Inquiry.

If this is collective amnesia, I find it startling that both relatives of Dr. Kelly and medical professionals are identically afflicted with amnesia.

Neither Janice or Rachel Kelly, nor Sian Kelly nor Ellen Wilson (Dr. Kelly's other two daughters) have ever publicly raised the issue of the injury to Dr. Kelly's right arm.

If you knew that your husband or father had supposedly used an injured arm to kill himself wouldn't you ask public questions? And ask them loudly?

So why didn't the Kelly family tell the Hutton Inquiry about the injury?

And why do they remain publicly silent to this day?

If there isn't collective amnesia, is it fair to label this continuing silence about the right arm injury a "conspiracy of silence"?

If it's a conspiracy what do the putative conspirators have to gain by their initial and continuing silence?

Who killed David Kelly? - March 2012 Open Forum

Each month during the writing of the book I intend to make a post specifically to encourage readers of the blog to comment on questions they would like to see addressed in a book about the death of Dr. Kelly or to draw attention to issues relating to the death of Dr. Kelly which they find particularly confusing.

As time allows, I hope to address such issues on the blog and/or add appropriate content to the developing manuscript of "Who Killed David Kelly?".

This post, which likely won't attract many comments given how recently the blog was launched, is intended for such general comments and questions in March 2012.

Proposed Book: "Who killed David Kelly?"

This blog is intended to assist the development and writing of a book provisionally entitled, "Who killed David Kelly?".

The purpose of the book will be to lay out a true life "who dunnit", examining the publicly available evidence about the death of David Kelly.

My plan is to set out, as dispassionately and accurately as I can, the publicly available evidence and let the reader decide who really killed David Kelly.

Did David Kelly kill himself as Lord Hutton would have us believe?

Did someone else kill David Kelly? If so, why have Thames Valley Police and successive British Governments been so active in concealing who killed David Kelly?

What could be of such national political importance that the official cover-up that went into gear as early as the morning of 18th July 2003 continued through 2011, involving very senior Police officers and the United Kingdom's Attorney General, Dominic Grieve QC MP?

For the avoidance of doubt my considered opinion, on the basis of the publicly available evidence, is that David Kelly was murdered.

Were the identity of the murderer(s) publicly known there would be seismic political waves in the United Kingdom which would dwarf the impact of the Watergate scandal in the United States.
