re attempted interview by Crispin Flintoff bcc of Not The Andrew Marr Show https://nottheandrewmarrshow.co.uk/corbyn-film-censorship-has-backfired/
bcc to Jeremy Corbyn in Pugin's Palace
There is proof that we are living in a fascist country all about, Julian Assange a symbol. I weep for him and his family. The anger of Aquinas swells as I write his name.
My attempt, or rather Crispin's - to discuss the multitude of facts - and lies, around the unnatural death of David Kelly CMG DSc this morning, is a speck of the whole. 'They' used every trick - detaching audio from video - putting it out of phase grossly, having my speech echoed etc. Video at Crispin's end blanked intermittently.
And I am very used to it. For instance, our group - Dr Michael Powers QC bcc. Miles Goslett - independent journalist bcc, Dr Stephen Frost bcc, the late and very good friend - Dr Chris Burns-Cox bcc to his doctor son, myself met with Francis Swaine bcc at Leigh Day's by the city walls. LD had done a great deal of work for truth without charge. This meeting July 2011 was to discuss whether we should proceed to challenge the decision of Grieve then Attorney General in his decision not to instigate an inquest this death has never been subjected to by petitioning the High Court. (We did 19-11-2011 see my website. Failed but see https://youtu.be/mXmfQEKtCCM 10 minutes )
The meeting on that Tuesday was recorded. The LD IT person prepared a mini-disc and it was sent out on the Wednesday. I knew my colleagues had received it promptly. I had a note in the post on the Saturday from the 'mail centre' Newton Abbot to say there was a packet for me that was 'postage unpaid'. So I went down. The Jiffy packet had been opened, and the disc was within. The printed 'paid' - had been torn away - hence the charge. I conferred with Miles Goslett who said I should report this - a crime in our dear land. I did so and a detective, who had served in Northern Ireland, took my story and saw the evidence - coolly and well. I had the impression he was in emI5. As I thanked him and bade goodbye - he said he wished me well re Kelly. This was earlier said by another policeman - they know when fish stinks.
My wife Sue SRN called me in to watch your programme which was to celebrate the start of OUR NHS 75 years ago from Torbay Hospital
There is much that I could say about it. It started nervously with rehearsed statements by senior staff in the Acute Medical Unit. It included short interviews of patients in the AMU. But as journalists you must have moral and ethical reservations about video recording vulnerable people after oral permission is gained.
Ms Graham interviewed Dr Matt Halkes a consultant anaesthetist. His morale appeared to be low and he started with 'its very hard times'. There was mention of technology and 'apps'. Mr Kevin Dixon of 'Healthwatch' added very little as expected but included 'we must involve patients'! Healthwatch tries to blunt the reality. Dr Sarah Wollaston, whom I know is a good GP, said this in her smiling contribution - 'Its very difficult to be efficient when your beds are very full.' This was after Ms Graham asked whether they would encourage people to come into the NHS - this 'business'.
Your editor included a piece showing the mountainous nurse with 'head set' communicating with a neurologist sitting remotely via the net. The patient had multiple sclerosis and had a spinal symptom. You might know, that of all specialists, neurologists need to take careful histories and then examine the patient, and especially the 'nervous system', with great skill and in detail. The editor included a clip of this nurse falling over. Was this mocking? Mrs Williams, the happy patient, said it was good to avoid the germs in attending the hospital. Some truth there perhaps.
An image of Teignmouth Hospital was shown and audio - 'the first hospital to be built by the NHS'. The BBC will know its fate might now be sealed, a ridiculous centre for a medical bureaucracy having been approved by Teignbridge 'planning' two weeks ago to replace just a few functions of a closing hospital.
Our dear Fiona underwent an emergency colostomy for obstruction due to a rectal cancer last July. Symptoms had first appeared about two months before. The advance of the cancer was rapid.
She underwent two courses of chemotherapy, and then palliative radiotherapy for a mass in her tummy on the right side. The cancer was not checked and in her final month of life the obstruction of her large bowel was total. Happily, and with the help of an anti-spasmodic, she was able to drink and eat sorbets etc
Throughout her illness she never complained. She continued to live her life as actively as possible, and with good humour.
She had wonderful support within our NHS, and especially the 'end of life' care provided by District and Weldmar Hospice nurses. The care given by her partner Andy Napper was exceptional, and added to by the close family. The family is stronger for this.
Sue and I have had many cards and messages in sympathy and love. We have realised how much this sustains people in their grief.
This post is - to thank the many, and in celebration of Fiona's life - with her caring at the centre.

The likely assassination of David Kelly CMG DSc shows the lawlessness of the United Kingdom. This man, who was our foremost germ and chemical weapons expert with full MI6 and CIA clearance, was not seen - 'officially', after he left his home at 3pm on the 17th July 2003. The lawlessness is proved in the fact that he has never had an inquest which is bound to follow unnatural death.
Instead the Hutton Inquiry was set up on the request of the then PM, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair QC. This was within three hours of an unidentified body being found in an Oxfordshire wood at Harrowdown Hill. The inquiry was so called - ad hoc. It had no force in law. Hearings started three weeks after the death, and took place over twenty-one days. As Dr Michael Powers QC noted, only half of one day was spent on the forensic elements.
The instruction given by Lord Falconer to Lord Hutton (deceased two years ago) on that morning of the 18th of July was as oblique as possible. 'To inquire into the circumstances surrounding the death of David Kelly'. It concluded by adopting the causes of death as recorded by the young forensic pathologist Nicholas Hunt, who had been on the Home Office list in that function for two years only. That is - the death was suicide due first to bleeding from a cut into the left wrist (via the matchstick thin ulnar artery) and the consumption of coproxamol tablets. These are a combination of dextropropoxyphene and paracetamol. It was presumed this man had swallowed 29, just one tablet remaining in one of three packs. And an added factor in causing death was coronary artery disease.
