An astonishing claim was made by former Mayor Ken Livingstone in yesterday’s Independent:
â€œI would question him about his role in the death of Dr David Kelly. I remember hearing his controversial piece on the Today programme, it was quite early but my kids had woken up. I heard him mention a senior intelligence source and I immediately thought one of the top ten people in MI6 has grassed up the government. It turns out to be poor old David Kelly. Basically what Gilligan did was what has destroyed so many otherwise good coppers, theyâ€™ve caught a criminal but they havenâ€™t got the evidence, so they falsify the evidence. If Gilligan hadnâ€™t distorted what Kelly had said, grossly exaggerated it, Kelly would be alive today.â€
Incredible. Iâ€™d never looked at it that way and just assumed that if any blame lay anywhere it was on the government. Isn’t this just Ken not being able to let go of losing the election or does he have a point; did Andrew Gilligan cause Dr David Kellyâ€™s suicide?
