Congratulations Craig Murray, the UK’s former Ambassador to the Central
Asian Republic of Uzbekistan. The entirely sane and rational Craig has written on his blog a piece entitled ‘London Bomb – Cui Bono?’ in which he makes the case that the government may have planted yesterday’s bomb:
Brown had already made plain he supports further anti-civil liberties legislation. This produces just the kind of febrile atmosphere in which that can be done. The television news is already pushing 90 day detention without charge again.
Nurse! The screens…
That’s a shame, the guy was brave to expose what was going on where he was ambassador but has now blown any credibility.
why do only nutters act as whistleblower?
errr – he says
I am adding this para in response to blogs attempting to say that I am claiming the bomb was planted by the State. I have not changed the above, and plainly it does not say that. In fact, I think that is one of the least likely explanations – in terms of the British State, at least. I have no idea who planted it. I am saying we should not leap to the conclusion it was Islamic fundamentalists. It could be, or it could be other extremists, or interests, who benefit from the War on Terror. The Cui Bono test throws up a number of possibilities.
What is the purpose of this bizarre statement then?
And the later ambiguous caveat?
Who is he referring to?
