Campbell reveals suicide thoughts
In his entry for 10 August 2003 he said he wondered "whether what I discovered on reading my own diary would be so awful that I would want to top myself".Hey! It's never too late.
Dr Kelly killed himself after being named as the source of a report into the government's Iraq dossier. Mr Campbell wrote that he had left a holiday home in France on 10 August 2003 to pick up the diary to put forward as evidence for the inquiry. "As I left the house, and said goodbye to Fiona (his partner), I did actually wonder momentarily whether it would be the last time I saw her, whether what I discovered on reading my own diary would be so awful that I would want to top myself. "It was only a passing thought, but it was there, and it came back several times as I drove down to Marseilles.
"I knew I had done nothing wrong, but in this climate, things had gone beyond reason, it was like a drama or a novel, and nobody had control of events."
