But there is a difference between the suppression of the truth surrounding Dr Kelly's death and Diana's.
Dr Kelly was allegedly about to reveal the truth behind the deliberate mis-direction of Parliament and the public by the government of the day
relating to Iraq's alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction which directly contributed towards the UK's involvement in the Iraq War.
If proven then that would have had serious implications on each and every UK citizen and would have been a deliberate attempt to by-pass UK Law and
That would have had a direct impact on me, my life and that of friends, family and almost everyone I know and as such would have demanded that nothing
like that could happen again; a major reform of our parliamentary procedures.
As callous as this may seem but Diana's death had absolutely zero impact or effect on me, my life and that of almost everyone I know.
We have enough on our plate simply trying to get by and live our lives the best we can under what are at times quite testing circumstances.

But even if it did we would still have the same old network of 'the establishment' governing and controlling things through the same old electoral
and parliamentary systems.
Full disclosure of the circumstances behind Dr Kelly's death could
show once and for all the true depths of the control these people have and
the contempt they have for the British people.
Full disclosure of the circumstances behind Diana's death will merely confirm what many believe about the Royal Family.
As I said earlier, William and Harry's response could be crucial.
But then again, maybe there is nothing much more to Diana's death than what has already been revealed - it's certainly possible, not everything is a
And to be fair the same could be said about Dr Kelly's death.
That's just my take on things, I don't think for one minute that I speak for the majority within the UK and my assessment could be well wide of the
