Senior sources among all the Kings Army and All the Kings Men fear they are being hung out to dry, as a trial by media seeks a scapegoat for the tragic death of Humpty Dumpty.
My Dumpty, known only as Humpty D until his details were leaked on Twitter, was with friends when he sat on a wall.
What happened next is a matter of contention that several public inquiries have failed to establish. The coroner recorded an open verdict at first, noting only that he'd 'had a great fall', which had caused multiple fractures.
It's the response of the ambulance services that has been called into question. Many questions are still unresolved.
