The Guardian.
In a letter to the Guardian they say:

"We view this as highly improbable. Arteries in the wrist are of matchstick thickness and severing them does not lead to life threatening blood loss. Dr Hunt stated that the only artery that had been cut - the ulnar artery - had been completely transected. Complete transection causes the artery to quickly retract and close down, and this promotes clotting of the blood."

The authors of the letter point out that, according to the ambulance team who attended Kelly, the amount of blood at the scene was minimal and that it is unlikely he lost more than a pint of blood.

"To have died from haemorrhage, Dr Kelly would have had to lose about five pints of blood," they say.

At the time i thought it was a bit strange of him to commit suicide, why? He was under alot of pressure but he had alot of support from family and friends. There were many reasons to bump him off. To stop him from revealling any other secrets he may know, and might tell. I think it`s more than likely he was murdered. Your thoughts please.

Personally I think he was quietly bumped off.

Not too quietly as it turns out though.

Yes i do to. But once again the media and police fail in unvealing a corrupt government. No bottle!!

There's also a distinct lack of evidence of foul play. The conspiratorial mind will jump to conclusions on that point too, but hey, what can ya do?

Get Gore on the case?!

the did someone kill Dr Kelly - I am very surprised someone would suggest that severing the arteries in the wrist is not potentially fatal - it actually depends upon the direction and depth of the incision - something we are not made privy too in the inquest data. For evidence to the contrary I would direct any reader to the many texts from ancient Rome that describe slitting wrists as an honorable form of suicide for prominent citizens.

1) Dr Kellys religion... forbade suicide.
2) His e-mail. " If we go to war i'll be found dead in the woods".
3) Any lack of motive for suicide. He was in the spotlight but he was a world specialist in his field and highly highly respected by the worlds intelligence community.
4) The blood. Or lack of it. The ambulance crew stated that if he did bleed to death he didn't bleed to death where they found him.
5) Look at the long, long, long list of other microbiologists....
6) Saddams absolute hatred for the man. Did he order it? An Iraqi hit?

Oh and another factor...where were his SB / sis minders? he was as a potential security risk monitored at all times...where were his watchers?

And this for me clinches it. On the day he died his dental records were stolen from a locked cabinet.... only to turn up the following sunday....

Yep i think it may of been Leo Blair sent on a mission by his father like a real like version of Chuckie. I never liked the look of him.
Clearly he was killed, it just pisses me off we can`t do anything, this government get`s away with everything. Selling honours, killing biritish citizens, invading countries illegally.

Although I like the topic, I notice a number of 'one-liner' posts in this thread. Surely there is more to say on Kelly's murder/suicide than simple jokes...?

For some background, here's my post that I started in another thread (that has no replies) before this thread was created.

Did UK government murder Doctor Kelly?

Was a British scientist murdered by the British government or British agents?

A recap on the story:

We all know now that the UK government made up intelligence to build a case to attack Iraq.

Alistair Campbell, Blair's spin doctor chaired meetings about the production of an intelligence dossier used to sell war on Iraq to the British. He deliberately manipulated the dossier so for example "may" have weapons was changed to "has" weapons.

Not only that but he was behind the fabrication of another dossier, lifting pages complete with gramatical errors off the internet from a 10 year out-of-date student thesis. He was never sacked for this. Only praised by Blair.

Before all this came to light, the BBC reported that it had a souce that claimed the government had "sexed-up" its case for war. Obviously we now know this is true but Campbell went ballistic, touring TV studios demanding to flush out the source. He wanted to go to war against the BBC. He wanted to demonise the BBC.

Step forward David Kelly. When the government found out this scientist had said he thought he might be the source, they assured him they would not reveal his name to the media, but they did just that and in days he was put on live TV and grilled before a committee where he denied he was the mole.

Days later he was found dead, allegedly having comitted suicide while walking . Blair ordered an inquiry by a sychophantic law lord that was widely described as a whitewash that criticised the BBC, but not Blair and his lies. Resignations followed at the BBC only. No inquest was held into David Kelly's death. No official cause of death was legally established, but paramedics at the scene question if it was suicide.

Do you think he was murdered?

looks like a murder to me.
dont think thats much to debate about it.
nobodys bothered though so, who cares
even the relatives dont seem to care

Tony Blair went to the relatives and had a face to face - and they fell silent. We will never know who or what killed the great Dr Kelly, but kill him they did.

This was a sad day for any public servant with any self esteem and a desire to see the truth get through the web of lies spun and spun each day by our dictators here in the UK. Speak out and you die - they even let it look like a murder, including the abrasions on his face and head and the shallow depth of the cuts to his arm.

Norman Baker from the Liberal Democrats challenge the conclusion that Kelly commited suicide. MP casts doubt on David Kelly suicide


An opposition member of parliament has alleged that a government scientist who cast doubt on intelligence about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction may not have taken his own life.

Points raised by Baker -- whose centre-left party opposed the Iraq war -- included the fact that Kelly supposedly cut his ulnary artery in his wrist, a more difficult and painful option that the radial artery. In 2003, Baker said, Kelly was the only person recorded to have taken his or her own life in this fashion. Baker also said that paramedics who attended the scene where Kelly's body was found in Oxfordshire noticed that he had lost little blood and was "incredibly unlikely" to have died from the wound they saw.

Baker also faulted the way Kelly's death was investigated
