Blair's Mantra

Whenever Tony Blair wanted to justify some erosion or outright demolition of liberty, he and the party members who used to be organised to write letters to newspapers, local and national, on his behalf, all used to chant variations on "if you've done nothing wrong, then you have nothing to hide."

So why are they hiding all the medical evidence about the death of Doctor David Kelly, then?

It behoves us all to be jolly careful whilst taking walks in the woods, or working in the UN buildings in Vienna for that matter.

Incidentally: anyone covering up a crime they were not responsible for, perhaps out of fear of uncontrollable political consequences, becomes an accessory to that crime, even if they do not share the original criminal's purpose and intent. They also commit the fresh offence of "perverting the course of justice" or "conduct tending to pervert the course of justice" if charged in their native Scotland.
