In 2005 Norman was described by the Daily Mail as “the most hated man in Westminster” due to his campaign for transparency on MP expenses. More recently Norman published “The Strange Death of David Kelly” and at AV3 he discussed his remarkable investigation into the death of the Iraq weapons inspector.
Six years after Lord Hutton published his Inquiry report, the death of Dr David Kelly simply won’t go quietly into obscurity. The Hutton Report on Kelly’s death was widely derided upon its publication – it was construed a whitewash, and the conclusion that the Government weapons inspector took his own life is not supported by the facts.
With its backdrop of the UK’s entry into an illegal war in Iraq, an initiative which we now know had been planned back in the autumn of 2002, there are many reasons why all is not as it seems. Norman comments: “I was determined to get to the bottom of it. Along the way I have unearthed much interesting material, some directly related to my present investigations, some not. Dr Kelly was a good man who served this country, and indeed the world, well. We owe it to him to get to the bottom of what happened on that fateful day in July 2003. The results are there for all to see, which I outline in this lecture.”
