Something to Hide?

No inquiry into 7 July bombings

There will be no public inquiry into the 7 July London bombings which killed 52 people, the Home Office has said.

Ministers will instead publish a definitive account of what happened in a written narrative.

The account will include material gathered from intelligence and security agencies and the police.

But some Muslim groups and victims' relatives have expressed anger, saying a wider public inquiry is essential for understanding what happened.

My Comments:

Statements that “The most important thing is to concentrate on further terrorist threats” rather then hold a public enquiry (as issued by Charles Clarke in response to questioning as to why this decision had been taken), are simply not good enough.  Not only do relatives of the victims need to know what happened, but the Muslim Community needs answers too (and answers they can trust), otherwise the victimisation they are suffering at the hands of some members of the public may increase and will certainly not abate.

But, of course, this also raises the question what do the Government not want us to know?  And it could well be that many more people will be asking this question now.
