3.05pm - First Minister,
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? LINK
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 presently in power, and they were all
furnished with a copy of the booklet, so there is no reason for them
not to order a new inquiry now 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.
