Nanny has a little secret, which she doesn’t want us to know about; actually she has lots of little secrets, some 63000 files in fact.
The problem for Nanny is that the Freedom of Information act gives us the right to view these files.
Nanny hates that act.
She has been fretting, night and day, about how to keep the prying eyes of the media and general public away from her secrets; and therefore asked her good chums in the MOD to help her out.
Luckily, for Nanny, the MOD came up with a brilliant plan.
They have decided that Nanny’s box of secrets, which includes the official account of the sinking of the Belgrano, has been contaminated by asbestos; and therefore cannot, for health and safety reasons, be opened until safely decontaminated.
Needless to say, the decontamination procedure may well take several years.
A brilliant plan, with one fatal flaw; it is bollocks!
The Belgrano was sunk in the early eighties; asbestos was banned, and removed, from buildings in the seventies. Therefore, the Belgrano file cannot possibly have come into contact with asbestos.
Come on Nanny, you will have to do better than that!
