Give Us Our 7/7 Inquiry

UPDATE 7: Narrative flawed, admits Reid - Mirror, . We've said it was contradictory and inconsistent for months, and of course it fuels calls for an inquiry...

Voice of the Mirror '7/7 Truth Must Out'

'Give Us Our 7/7 Inquiry' By Jon Clements And Jeff Edwards
''THE Mirror today calls on the government to tell the people of Britain the full story behind the 7/7 bomb attacks...''

''Why are we still in the dark?''. You've read it all here before...

''An Insult To Britain'' by Paul Greengrass, acclaimed 9/11 film director

''20 Unanswered Questions'' by The Mirror

''£250m inquiry bill'' By Jon Clements
''THE Government says cost is the main reason for refusing a 7/7 inquiry. Yet, there have been 10 public inquiries implemented by Labour since 1997, costing a total of £250million...''

''TELL US WHAT YOU THINK? Do you think there should be an independent inquiry into the July 7 terror attacks? Email us your views at mirrornews@mirror.co.uk. Or you can send us a fax on 020 7293 3409'' .Or you can sign here ( the petition signed by members of the public, and some survivors and bereaved. Click. Or you can email or fax your MP using this easy online service.

More soon... and a huge thanks to everyone who has helped and supported this campaign over the last few months, especially fellow-bloggers Davide, Justin, Tim, Mat& Paul, Clive, Septic Isle (who I think of as . 'Spot', sorry), David Coleman , Fridgemagnet, Ringverse, Richard Wilson ( who started it), Craig Murray, Geoff, Chris, Jez, Mike, Juzzy, Holly, MattM, Noel, Sharon, Tim Tea, Rick, Nick & Progressive Blog Alliance, Annie, Splodge, Siddhartha, Hamster , Innocent in London
Blogging can make a real difference, look what we've started. Please let me know if I have missed you out, and I will add to you to the linky-love-in.

And as a parting thought, what I have said many times this last year - every day in Iraq is now 7th July. This is not just a discussion to have in Britain. This is for all of us.


UPDATE: Mirror campaign continues for another day

By John Denham Chairman Of The Commons Home Affairs Committee And Former Home Office Minister
''NO ONE wants to play the blame game. No one wants an investigation to find one person who was at fault and make them pay.
But we need to fully understand what happened on July 7.
And there is a very simple reason - it is the best way to stop it from ever happening again...

Best wishes for your campaign for an enquiry. I agree that the GLA enquiry seemed to turn up a lot more information than any government response.

Great news - and great Mirror piece.

Keep up the good work, Rachel

If there's not a full independent inquiry into 7/7, then what else could possibly justify one?

with best wishes

Hi Rachel, I read your story in Grazia magazine - I'm full of admiration for you and the other survivors and will be thinking of you on Friday. Good luck with all that you do.

Rachel, you determination, sincerity and stamina [against all odds] are an inspiration to every Briton -- and to all those fellow truth seekers with whom we share this small but precious planet.

Sooner or later, the ordinary people WILL be heard. They'll make themselves heard -- in whatever ways it takes.

Heh, spot. I sort of go by Obsolete, or Simon, although I sure don't mind.

All the best.

I saw the article in the Mirror today and it is good that people are still pressing the government for an inquiry.

It happened in America, so our government should give in one day as long as there are hard working campaigners.

Keep it up!

The calls for an inquiry are reaching a crescendo. I only hope the Government will now listen.

Fingers crossed

I've just come here from obsoletes blog. If you want read my post on that as well. Rachel, as a citizen of the UK, where enquiries seem to be two a penny I cannot believe that we actually have to ask for one into the July attacks. What are we coming to? Good luck with the campaign. I back u whole heartedly. Actually I'm so outraged at the prospect of no enquiry that I will do a post on my in the next few days. I will put the link to your blog in it and will blogroll you too. Godspeed with everything, you are an inspiration. Pippa

Since you are offering people a second chance, I will try again (although I don't believe my previous attempt to post this contained any personal abuse, nor was it anonymous).

Amnesty International state that any public inquiry will be a sham until the Public Inquiries Act of 2005 is repealed.

Do you agree, or would you be satisfied with an inquiry under the terms of that Act?

7/7 inquiry must be independent, transparent and have a comprehensive remit. Everything the 9/11 commission was not. As a campaign is there a mechanism to test the opinion of supporters as to the nature of any inquiry?

Thanks very much for the support everyone. Ian, as you are part of the 'British 9/11 Truth movement, ' and a committed conspiracy theorist, I doubt any inquiry will satisfy you, but as I and most people are not of the opinion that 9/11 and 7/7 were psy-ops by the New World Order/Lizards/Mossad/ etc, we will have to agree to disagree.

"but as I and most people are not of the opinion that 9/11 and 7/7 were psy-ops by the New World Order/Lizards/Mossad/ etc, we will have to agree to disagree."

No, there is a slightly more rational explanation.

I've signed the petition: not that it'll make a jot of difference.

But later on when "Liar, Liar, Poodlepants on fire" finally gets evicted from the Big Brother house in Nr 10, we might still be able to rub his nose in it...

Thanks for the reply and allowing my post to be posted but you don't actually answer the question.

I recall that you see the 9/11 commission as some kind of model for a 7/7 inquiry. Not a view I share obviously and so I'm concerned that the campaign will support a very limited inquiry that fails to ask the tough questions.

My question is whether the campaign has a mechanism by which it will test opinion amongst its supporters

Hi Rachel

I was checking my blog account the other day and noticed I had 3 messages that were waiting for me to approve, which should have been sent to my e-mail address.

Anyway I have added the comments now and you are welcome for your one.

Many Thanks
