Lord Cullen of Whitekirk, the Judge who chaired such confidence inspiring inquiries as the Dunblane school massacre where gun fantasist & 'writer' to some politicians,Thomas Hamilton murdered 15 children & a teacher, then slapped a 100 year secrecy order to cover up various still unresolved aspects of who did what, and allowed Mr Hamilton to have his arsenal of weapons ...receives the Order of the Thistle, amid a very strange lack of publicity ...
Could it be some would be less than honoured the Order of the Thistle had been given to Lord Cullen in the circumstances of many people's doubt over the likes of the Dunblane massacre investigation ?
Scotland on Sunday reports :
A FORMER senior judge has been given Scotland's highest honour, it was announced yesterday.
Lord Cullen of Whitekirk was appointed a Knight of the Thistle on St Andrew's Day.
He led inquiries into the Piper Alpha disaster and the Dunblane shootings, and in March 2002 led the five-judge tribunal which heard the failed appeal of the Lockerbie bomber.
The Order of the Thistle represents the highest honour in Scotland. It honours Scottish men and women who have held public office or who have contributed in a particular way to national life.
