Subject: Re:  MoD File Release 

The debate as to whether the MoD's file release is conducted in
good faith will doubtless grind on for years to come. Today,
however, there has been a very public indication of the
truthfulness, or otherwise, of the MoD:


The timing of this particular embarrassment for the MoD should
serve as a salutary warning for those who, for whatever reason,
want to believe that the MoD is telling the truth, the whole
truth, and nothing but the truth.

American members of this List would do well to keep in mind that
the British political/legal system is radically different to
their own.

Americans are citizens, whereas the British are subjects.

American citizens started with rights and have spent 200+ years
trying, not at all effectively in certain areas, to prevent
their removal by their own government.

In Britain subjects have spent nearly a thousand years gradually
acquiring rights by eroding the Divine Right of Kings.

Joe's proclamation to the effect that 'disclosure is here' is
somewhat premature. We in Britain are still unable to base our
pursuit of the truth on any basic statement of our rights as
citizens in this regard.

On any balanced view you'd have to say that the release of these
of these files is an important step forward, but we have a long
way yet to go.
