Scottish National Party Conference

Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow , Saturday, 12 March 2016

3.05pm - First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon:

"Conference, I start today on a sad note.   Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of one of the darkest days Scotland has ever known.  Even now there are simply no words to express our horror and our sadness at what happened in Dunblane Primary School on 13 March 1996.

All we can do is tell those who lost loved ones, those who suffered injuries, and those whose lives changed forever that day that we have not forgotten, 'You are in our thoughts and in our hearts and you always will be.' "

-- Conference reference to Dunblane ends --

A truly commendable rendition.  However, if we have truly not forgotten the victims of the Dunblane Massacre, Nicola, why have the booklets been forgotten, those with which I provided EVERY MSP? These included my letters to the Dunblane Inquiry before, during and after the inquiry took place, and were sinisterly put on 100-year closure order by Lord Cullen? Why have they been forgotten?

To be fair to Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP; they were not in government when those booklets were handed in to the Scottish Parliament (addressed to every MSP individually) but the SNP are in power now, so there is no reason for them not to order a new inquiry into all aspects of the Dunblane tragedy, including the reasons why Thomas Hamilton was allowed by certain police officers, councillors, MPs and ombudsmen, to lead a charmed life in the years before the Massacre; why crucial witnesses were not called to give evidence at the inquiry; why crucial witnesses who did give evidence were not asked about their Masonic status; why Thomas Hamilton had seemingly free access to Queen Victoria School; why the physical and sexual abuse that took place there was not probed; and why Lord Cullen's Dunblane Inquiry whitewash was never questioned.
