5.0 out of 5 stars Don't rock the boat 13 Jun 2010
By Sam
Society has somehow been conditioned to avoid discussion about Thomas Hamilton. Revisiting his life would supposedly be painful for the parents of the victims. Re-examing interesting witness testimony is not allowed because protecting the identity of innocent children is paramount.

Against this backdrop, the lid has been firmly closed on discussion about many aspects of Thomas Hamilton's life. Sandra's book, conversely, raises a long series questions about the activities, and moreover acquaintances, of Thomas Hamilton. These questions arise mostly from examining official records which can be independently verified by the reader.

The book's author wonders:

- How did Thomas Hamilton obtain and keep firearms licences for years when he was known to authorities to be unsuitable? Why were the checks and balances of the law at the time not effective?
- How did Thomas Hamilton manage to tyrannize and intimidate so many boys at his clubs and summer camps for years without being stopped, even though many parents complained to the police and councils?
- Given that Thomas Hamilton was known to be fond of photographing and videoing bare-chested young boys running around in shorts or swimming trunks, why was he allowed to continue doing this?
- Who were the regular visitors behind the closed curtains of Thomas Hamilton's home? Why did all the acquaintances of Thomas Hamilton at the Inquiry describe their contact with him as remote, infrequent and uninteresting?
- Hamilton bought new shirts a few days before the shooting. Yet when his house was searched after the shooting, the only clothes and cash that police found were one jacket and four 10p coins (and an empty wallet). Did he really intend to commit suicide that day? Or flee?

Sandra was very brave to write this book, more people should expose the conspiracy of silence that surrounds abuse. Well done Sandra.

5.0 out of 5 stars A shooter's view of the book 27 Mar 2006
This is my second attempt to present a review on this site. if my first attmept, submitted several days ago, should eventually surface, please accept my apologies for submitting two.
I am the current Director of the Sportsman's Association of Great Britain & Northern Ireland (the SA). The SA was formed in September 1996 to defend the legitimate sport of target pistol shooting which was under legislative threat following the atrocity committed at Dunblane by Thomas Hamilton.
The SA commissioned its own booklet entitled: Dunblane, The Untold Truths. I was involved in the production of that booklet. The booklet concentrated on the firearms aspects of the case and detailed the 18 mistakes in application of the then existing firearms laws in Hamilton's case made by the Central Scotland Police over a period of over 18 years from 1977, when Hamilton received his first Firearm Certificate up to the day of the massacre. This information was sufficient to demonstrate that Hamilton was not a fit person to be entrusted with firearms and that he should never have been granted a Firearm Certificate to enable him to possess guns 'legally'.
The failure of the Central Scotland Police to carry out their duties properly had disastrous consequences for those in the school on that day and for their families and for all those affected by the massacre. It also had consequences for decent people everywhere.
Sandra Uttley's book covers a much broader range of topics than did our own booklet and reflects the high quality of the research she has carried out, frequently in the face of obfuscation and obstruction from the 'authorities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biggest British Cover-Up Blown! 27 May 2006
Sandra Uttley's book details the events surrounding the murder of 16 school children and their teacher at Dunblane Primary School, by Thomas Hamilton.

I was so gripped by what I was reading I had finished the book within 24 hours from opening the front cover. Sandra raises more questions than answers. Why did Central Scotland Police allow Thomas Hamilton to have a Firearms Certificate when there was doubts as to his suitability to hold one? Why was there no vigorous investigation into allegations of Thomas Hamilton's paedophile activities and contacts. Who were the men in chauffeured vehicles that made regular visits to Thomas Hamilton's home? He exstinguished the lives of a teacher and 16 innocent little children at Dunblane, of that there is no doubt, but who killed Thomas Hamilton? Why were Central Scotland Police allowed to carry out the investigation when they were implicated? Why did Lord Cullen not read the preparatory material prior to his Inquiry, and fail to call vital witnesses? Who was he protecting? Why did he put a 100 year gagging rule on the information he had access to. The questions are endless and won't go away until they are answered, that will only happen when the Inquiry is re-opened and carried out as thoroughly as that held on Soham.

Sandra Uttley has written an important document that investigates various aspects of the case, in doing so she has put her head above the parapet. The book is very thought provoking and a 'must read' for everyone.
