I don’t see what the big mystery is, myself. It’s pretty obvious that Mackinlay and Campbell had sucked him dry.

Tim,That’s a bit unfair when it comes to Mackinlay. He was the first to apologise publicly plus, and I know this sounds awful, but Kely was an obstinate man at the select committee and Mackinlay treated him like anyone else in front of him at a committee hearing – he was robust.http://www.publications.parliament.uk/cgi-bin/ukparl_hl?DB=ukparl&STEMMER=en&WORDS=kelli+mackinlai+&COLOUR=Red&STYLE=s&URL=/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmfaff/1025/3071503.htm#muscat_highlighter_first_matchandhttp://www.publications.parliament.uk/cgi-bin/ukparl_hl?DB=ukparl&STEMMER=en&WORDS=kelli+mackinlai+&COLOUR=Red&STYLE=s&URL=/pa/cm200304/cmselect/cmfaff/1025/3071510.htm#muscat_highlighter_first_matchIn addition, Mackinlay later received a huge amount of hate mail, death threats and vilification. The words “Mackinlay killed Kelly” were daubed on a newspaper building wall in his constituency town of Thurrock and Mackinlay considered resignation over the issue.Throughout his role in the select committee Mackinlay was firm, and direct. He was not unfair to Kelly. He was also immensely regretful and apologetic immediately after news of Kelly’s death broke.He acted honourably throughout.Campbell on the other hand was a cunt, beginning to end.
Point taken. Hooray for comments.:o)
