Dr Kelly's death, whether caused by his hand or by someone else, was all about the 'war' on Iraq.
Our plea for a second inquest, based on a mountain of incontrovertible evidence, has been refused by the Rt Honorable Dominic Grieve QC, this government's foremost law officer.
He voted 'very strongly' for the 'war' on Iraq – Public Whip 
It is abundantly clear, given the obvious conflict of interest, that he should have disqualified himself from judging this plea on legal, constitutional and moral grounds.
"We will persist and truth will out. Our great country is mired in mendacity. Its people yearn for the triumph of principle."
