If Dr Kelly did commit suicide which I for one do not think he did it was because he was about to be dismissed from his civil service post.
He was a sick man and he was much older than his wife and obviousy was thinking of her financial future should he die.
A civil servant who is dismissed loses his accrued pension and gratuity, but if he dies in service as he did a portion of his pension and gratuity is paid to his spouse.
Personnaly I think there are too many unanswered questions surrounding the location and manner of his death as has been quoted previously it is not in any government's interest to get these murky secrets out in the open for all to see.
st-clares "it is not in any government's interest to get these murky secrets out in the open for all to see".
If he was murdered on the orders of someone connected with the government of the day they would have made a better job of it. They would have done it in such a way that there would be no room for suspicion or doubt. We may think that government agencies such as MI5 are a load of bumbling idiots that get everything they do wrong but that is not the way of it in the real world.
I did not say directly the government were involved but it wouldn't be the first time the security services have bungled an operation. I cant give any instances at the moment other than the "Buster Crabbe" incident in Portsmouth harbour in the 1950s. I am old enough being in my teens to remember the Hoo Haa and international incident that caused.
Even MI5 & 6 like all organisations are not infallible and make mistakes.
Well an inquest might solve the problem if every witness was allowed to tell the truth surrounding the circustances of what was discovered at the scene of his death and after at the postmortem.
There ar many experts more qualified than me who have their concerns that some of the disclosed evidence does not add up.
