Death of David Kelly

Full article: David Kelly/Death

His study of the Death of David Kelly have left him convinced that Kelly was murdered, prompting the obvious suspicion that the UK establishment were involved - since Kelly's death is quite exceptional in never having been the subject of an inquest. Baker however has resisted speculation about who carried out his murder. Baker has said that the Hutton Inquiry had "blatantly failed to get to the bottom of matters", and that "the more I look into it the less convinced I am by the explanation and the more unanswered questions appear which ought to have been addressed properly by the Hutton inquiry or by the coroner.",[1]

Death of Robin Cook

A 2013 BBC article by Jon Kelly was entitled Is it OK to call someone a conspiracy theorist?, and observed that because Norman Baker expressed "doubts" about the death of Robin Cook Aaronovitch termed him "a conspiracy theorist".[2]
