Book Review: The Strange Death of David Kelly by Norman Baker MP
This is a very detailed paperback of 399 pages which outlines the life and death of Dr David Kelly, a well-known microbiologist and the leading biological weapons inspector of the UK. Dr Kelly was found dead within forest at a place known as Harrowdown Hill in Oxfordshire in England. The Hutton enquiry into his death found that he had committed suicide. However, other people, as well as friends and relatives of Dr Kelly, strongly disagreed. From anonymous sources, the author of this book has come to the conclusion that Dr Kelly was assassinated by two Iraqi misfits because of his involvement in the biological weapons inspections in Iraq. They appear to have kidnapped him, drugged him and then cut his wrist after he had died to make out that it was a suicide. They also placed copraxamal tablets near his body to make out that he swallowed others. The assassinators didn't realize that Dr Kelly had a string aversion to taking tablets. It is also possible that Dr Kelly carried many secrets and was silenced because of the threat that these secrets were to be released. Normal Baker believes that Dr Kelly was injected with some kind of poison such as ricin, insulin, saxotoxin or potassium nitrate. Whatever the case, it appears that the Hutton enquiry and the Blair Government whitewashed the death of Dr Kelly. The coronerÃ¢??s findings were not even used in the Hutton enquiry and important witnesses were not called for evidence. The Hutton enquiry is a total sham and somebody needs to clean up the whole mess of the murder of Dr Kelly. Hopefully this book and others will be able to do this by gaining support for a proper enquiry. Highly recommended.
