    Clarke tells London bombing survivor's father "Get away from me"

    I have just read this piece, from Rachel from north London's blog, and Charles Clarke, our home secretary, once again has shown himself to have contempt for the British public:

    My father tells me he at this point left his seat and strode up to Clarke, because he wanted to ask his question, and he said,

    ''Congratulations on fixing the meeting so that nobody can ask questions! You will have heard about Rev Julie Nicholson who is so angry she cannot forgive the bombers who killed her daughter on 7th July , well, I have a question, my daughter was feet away from the 7/7 Kings Cross bomb, and she and some other surivors have said they are not angry with the bombers, but with the Government, because there was no public enquiry. Why is there no public enquiry?''

    Charles Clarke looked at my father ''in a very nasty way'', and then he said to my father

    '' Get away from me, I will not be insulted by you, this is an insult'.

    And he stormed past, and Dad was so upset he could not share Eucharist with this man,

    Charles Clarke is a disgrace to this country. He must answer for this contemptible treatment of a man whose daughter had first hand experience of the London bombings.

    Thanks to Blair Watch for pointing us to this piece.
