New 7/7 Documentary: Ludicrous Diversion

The July 7th Truth Campaign received an email earlier today informing us about the release of a new 7/7 documentary called 'Ludicrous Diversion'.

Ludicrous Diversion

On the 7th of July 2005 London was hit by a series of explosions. You probably think you know what happened that day. But you don’t.

The police have, from the onset of their investigation, chosen to withold from the public almost every bit of evidence they claim to have and have provably lied about several aspects of the London Bombings.

The mainstream news has wilfully spread false, unsubstantiated and unverifiable information, while choosing to completely ignore the numerous inconsistencies and discrepancies in the official story.

The government has finally, after a year, presented us with their official ‘narrative’ concerning the event. Within hours it was shown to contain numerous errors, a fact since admitted by the Home Secretary John Reid. They have continuously rejected calls for a full, independent public inquiry. Tony Blair himself described such an inquiry as a ‘ludicrous diversion’. What don’t they want us to find out?

Please distribute the link to this documentary far and wide and join us on the July 7th Truth Campaign's Independent People's Inquiry Forum.

An interesting fillum produced by ?

Many questions asked, none answered. The overwhelming theme is, the laws are in place, the dissident is silenced and an Inquiry into 7/7 would be pointless.

No examination of alternative theories to Gubment fantasy tale , duped drug couriers, bombs in place under trains, Mossad / Guiliana/Netanyahu/Helevy article. Acceptance of the traintime nonsense which the Gubment have now backed down on, no answer to confusion over mil. explosive etc.,

Not one new fact, and many many glossed over or missed. NO alternative viewpoint outlined or considered.

Now who would want to produce a fillum with those viewpoints ?

I would love to know. Having e-mailed the link, a reply is eagerly awaited.

I do know the name of the producer, although I don't have permission to publicise it.

I was contacted back in June by them to have some involvement, which unfortunately I didn't pursue. Much to my shame, otherwise I could fill in some of these spaces and perhaps answer some of the outstanding questions.

This was the reply I received when I asked for the outline of the film:

Hi Bridget,

The film is divided into the following sections:-

The Official Story
Refusal of Inquiry
The Narrative
Key Evidence
The Police and Bombs.
The Aftermath
The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act
The 2005 Inquiries Act
A Prediciton
Question The Police
Question The Media
Question The Government
And Then?

The film is an attempt to refute the central conspiracy theory regarding 77 – the conspiracy theory put out by the media, the police and the government. Because that is all that is – a conspiracy theory, a theory about a conspiracy and one so baseless, so lacking in evidence and so muddled that it should not ever have even been suggested, let alone rammed down the throats of the British Public in the way that it has.

The reason it could be such a good companion to the July 7th Truth campaign is that it takes the argument beyond the call for an inquiry itself – which since the 2005 Inquiries act (one month before 77) would be controlled by the relevant government minister who is empowered to block public scrutiny of state actions. It undermines the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary and human rights protection. This inexplicable change to the way inquiries are run was openly criticised by the Law Society of England, the US Joint Committee on Human Rights and Amnesty International – who stated that the new Act means that “any inquiry would be controlled by the executive”, obviously the one thing you don’t want from a supposedly unbiased inquiry.

An inquiry is not going to uncover the facts, and the emphasis is being pushed all the time onto foreknowledge and incompetence (just like 9/11) rather than an analysis of the facts. It will simply pass on, verbatim the same meaningless, unverifiable assertions made by the security services and police about the role of the four men, and continue to hammer home the fictional story of their motivations, their planning and their execution of their long-conceived plan and will avoid completely the major contradictions and problems in the official story.

The film highlights this and other crucial areas including a great section on the police’s record for convicting terrorist bombers.

Does this pique your interest. I’d like to share the full script with you but let’s have a chat/meeting first if you feel it’s appropriate.

I did then have a few email conversations with the producer but never took up the offer to meet. Partly because 'Mind The Gaps' was being produced by Official Confusion and also because I have previously invested time in other projects which failed to materialise.

I believe the film has more than met the expectations of the outline and serves as an important resource in alerting people to not only the total lack of evidence to support the official version but also and more importantly, the draconian laws being used against 'dissenters' and Muslims, and the police state that is being built on the back of these events.

Hopefully the producers will get back to you, although I wouldn't blame then if they fail to respond to my emails!

For Truth and Justice

All good observations, Postman, and a pertinent question about who might want to produce such a thing.

The film does credit bloggers with discovering that the 7.40am Luton-King's Cross Thameslink train didn't run, although there's no mention of the Home Secretary's admission in Parliament earlier this year that the Official Report is wrong. Nor does the film mention that other errors and inconsistencies in the report have been acknowledged by the government. Whether the omission of these details is deliberate, accidental, or due to time/production constraints, or the agenda of the film's producers, is unknown.

The pointlessness of an inquiry controlled by the executive seems to be fairly well established given the combined factors of the government's approach thus far, the Inquiries Act 2005, under which judges are already boycotting public inquiries (See Patrick Finucane's case for details), and the Hutton Inquiry which was conducted and completed before the new Inquiries Act was passed.

Where the film serves a purpose is in making the points that those who think they know what happened on 7/7, in fact, don't; that there is a history of government and police collusion in the manufacture of evidence to support the 'official' stories, while any evidence which gives lie to the official story is suppressed, and that the Official Report is unsupported by any evidence that would stand judicial scrutiny (e.g. the complete lack of CCTV, combined with the digital-manipulation CCTV image fade at 12m:30s).

Further, it makes the very valid point that ordinary people need to get on the case if we're to have any hope of getting to the truth behind what happened because the media has, yet again, failed the people entirely with their shameful approach to reporting and investigating the events of 7/7.
