Hutton's whitewash also included the stipulation that evidence related to the death, including the post-mortem report and photographs of the body, should remain classified for 70 years.
Here's Tony Blair, shortly after Kelly's murder, being asked an uncomfortable question (note his response):
Within a few days of the publication of the Hutton report, Gilligan, Director General Greg Dyke and Chairman Gavyn Davies were left with no option but to resign. Groups of staff staged walk-outs at BBC broadcasting house in London and many other BBC offices around the country. Staff also took out a full-page advertisement in the Telegraph that read (in part): "Greg Dyke stood for brave, independent and rigorous BBC journalism that was fearless in its search for the truth. We are resolute that the BBC should not step back from its determination to investigate the facts in pursuit of the truth."
Prior to the David Kelly affair, the BBC still maintained some scope to diverge from the official government line on major issues. With Dyke's departure, however, the BBC soon became little more than a government mouthpiece, and in the 8 years since then, has consolidated its position as the UK's premier media outlet for government propaganda and lies. Dyke's replacement in 2004 was Mark Thompson, a dyed-in-the-wool 'Israel firster' who seems to have spread his malignant ideology throughout the corporation. Thompson was still in charge at the BBC when the 'Savile the pedophile' Newsnight program was panned. Fortunately for Thompson, he has managed to avoid too many uncomfortable questions over the Savile scandal (like why he didn't act when he was alerted to it twice this year) by fleeing the country to start a new job as Chief Executive of the NY Times Company.
Pedophilia and child abuse is today, and apparently has been for many years, a widespread and serious problem in our technologically advanced yet morally decrepit Western society. More than any other social marker, the way in which the weak and innocent are treated defines the character of a civilization or people. The sad fact is that there is evidence to suggest that what is publicly known about the sexual and emotional abuse of children by the 'elite' of our world is very far from the full story. If the full story were known, it would so horrify the normal people of this world that society could not recover without a fresh start, preceded by a full-scale revolution. So we have a choice; we can continue to ignore the evidence that our world seems to be controlled by individuals of such a depraved and inhuman nature that they cannot really be described as human at all, and await the inevitable result of entrusting our lives and those of our children to such sub-humans; or we can wake up to the reality we have allowed these 'elite' to create for us, rail against it, and in doing so, begin to live and shape a new reality, a new world, based on truly human values.
