Bloody hell – tin foil beanies at the ready

It really probably isn’t a conspiracy theory, but it sure as hell looks like one… Dr David Kelly was apparently the MoD ‘mole’ that gave BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan the “45 minute” information that lead to the row between the BBC and the Government. He was pushed forward a few weeks ago, we suppose in a move to try and defuse the row from the Government’s side and make the BBC look daft. As a result of this Dr Kelly was asked to give evidence to the Select Committee investigation last Tuesday. He did, but he didn’t look comfortable doing it… Thursday he goes missing. And today he is found dead near his home.

Now… This really raises some issues. We have to assume that it was suicide (and I really am truly sorry if it wasn’t). If it was, why? We knew something fishy was going on, but now we really know that something fishy has been going on. Dr Kelly was (by all accounts I’ve read so far) a well respected man, happy in his lot. Clearly the events of the past weeks have upset him, but what was his role in all of this and how did he become so distressed that he ended up taking his own life? All very odd… Unless of course he fell on an MI5 bullet…

Just to lighten the mood, the first gag relating to this story I’ve seen…
