"And I think, in the end, that is the best definition of journalism I have heard; to challenge authority - all authority - especially so when governments and politicians take us to war, when they have decided that they will kill and others will die."
~ Robert Fisk

The Man in The Wood - Michael Hedley Burton
They murdered David Kelly in a wood
slashed his wrist
and in his right hand pressed
down his dead throat
poured sleeping-pills he might have bought.
Men dressed in black, skilled and professional at their trade,
took David Kellys life.
They knew, those killers, that the ones who willed him dead
would keep their work
unknown and dark,
away from light.
They had no fear
as, from afar,
they watched the empty rituals of justice roll
the machinery of deceit.
Law of the land its been for centuries
that all who die
have one inalienable, last right
before their body is consumed by earth or fire:
A public inquest shall be held
in which the facts of death are filed.
That right for David Kelly swiftly was removed
by one mans power.
Within a day the inquest was annulled.
The facts of the case,
were to be buried deep with Davids body in the earth.
They slowly rise
out of the river of deceit and lies
facts like the witness who saw hardly any blood
on him who bled to death.
Dripping with guilt are those who did that deed.
But greater blame
on those who hide the crime
and those who gave the order that a man be slayed.
and grinning Tony Blair
we dont forget five million orphans and a million dead.
We dont forget the one man in the wood.
"Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side."
A Quotation From: The NHS Dismantled
In his report to the Conservative Party’s Economic Reconstruction Group in 1977, Nicholas Ridley wrote that:
"...denationalisation should not be attempted by frontal attack but by preparation for return to the private sector by stealth. We should first pass legislation to destroy the public sector monopolies. We might also need to take power to sell assets. Secondly, we should fragment the industries as far as possible and set up the units as separate profit centres."
