    Default The Skripal Poisoning - A Very Deep British Affair

    For the last two and a half weeks the British media - less so the world or western media - have been engaged in publishing the most contrived one-sided news stories designed to inflate public angst against Russia and especially Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin.


    The two essential questions are can we show that this really was a contrived and fabricated story and if so why? What was it’s aim? The first question can clearly be answered in the affirmative and supported by evidence.

    The why question still hasn’t been clearly answered. The affair is ongoing and the aims remain shrouded; although reports from Russia suggest a joint US-UK military intervention in Syria that include 2,300 British troops, Challenger tanks and British flagged Cobra and Black Hawk helicopters massing at the American Al Tanf base.

    In any event, after almost two weeks of massive daily doses of trope from a wholly discredited media, two newspaper stories stood out. Actually, not stories but reports.

    The allegedly offending nerve agent we are told the dastardly Russians used to kill the Skripal’s - and which failed to do so, is named Novichok. This is said to be between 5 and 8 times more deadly that VX, the most deadly nerve agent in the Western armoury. One Russian reporter noted that opening a vial of Novichok in a restaurant would kill not only the assassin and everyone in the restaurant in minutes, but that the restaurant would have to be encased in concrete thereafter. Is this true? I have no idea, but the story itself speaks of the enormous kill potential of this particular nerve toxin. And yet no one has died. Neither of the two Skripal’s, nor the DSgt. policemen who is said to have been poisoned at the Skripal’s house (although this apparent story has changed too)

    Which makes the following media photo - there are several different ones circulating - of firemen watching other men in full Hazmat suits collecting or investigating contaminated samples of Novichok. The firm though are wholly unprotected other than their normal fire-wear. No hazmat suits, no breathing apparatus… nothing. And yet they stand just feet away the sample collecting men from Porton Down, Britain’s Chemical and Biological warfare Establishment that is geographically situated just a mere 8 miles down the street from the Salisbury park where both the Skripal’s were found slumped and unconscious.



    Stand safely behind the magical police tape while scaring the public



    More scaring of the public


    It is evident from the foregoing photo that the mainstream media are content to go along with the government campaign to hoodwink the British public with this artless propaganda story. The takeaway from this is that they can never be trusted again; that every emotionally charged story they publish on behalf of the British government can only be read in order to extract actual facts, but otherwise discarded as worthless. The British media as far as journalism goes is dust. The best that can be said for them is that they report British government propaganda as an exercise in compliant stenography.

    But even in their appalling and ethical free toadie-ness, sometimes nuggets of pure gold that prove the whole story to be a pure canard can be and are published by mistake (or by a journalist with a conscious who tries to sneak important information innocently in).

    This has proven to be the case in the Skripal affair.

    In the London Times on Friday, 16th March 2018, a letter appeared in the letters column. It was damning and in one stroke destroyed the entire fabricated Skripal story.

    Dr. Stephen Davies, the Consultant of emergency medicine at Salisbury District Hospital, where both the Skripal’s and the Sgt. of police were being kept and treated ( and still are) wrote to The Times to correct the facts of their sensational (fabricated) story of 14th March 2018 under the sensational and alarming headline “Poison exposure leaves almost 40 needing treatment”.





    Dr. Davies words were precise and destructive: “May I clarify that no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve agent poisoning Salisbury and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning”.

    Let me repeat that: “There are NO patients with nerve agent poisoning in Salisbury”. Not the Skripal’s and not the DSgt. Then for clarity he adds: “… and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning” - in other words the Skripal’s and the DSgt. The good doctor, who is a Consultant for the emergency room (yes, he exists, yes he works at Salisbury District Hospital, yes he is the Consultant for emergency medicine - I checked) doesn’t identify what poison was used on those three patients, but he is able to state categorically that it was not “nerve agent”.

    Two weeks of headline news destroyed by one letter from the person who knew but who wasn’t scripted into the charade.

    Life is never dull, eh.

    For those who care to dig further there is really only one individual to recommend for conducting an independent and damning investigation into this smelly affair, and that is former British diplomat, Craig Murray, who as a matter of fact was the British Ambassador in Uzbekistan, the region where Russian Novichok was “developed”. Murray had, in fact, visited the facility where this happened in his ambassadorial role.

    His blog is: https://www.craigmurray.org.uk Dig back over the last two weeks and have fun reading Murray as he utterly destroys the British governments story using facts supplied by some of his wide number of insiders at Porton Down and elsewhere who clearly very, very unhappy with being forced to toe the government lie.

    Have done so Tooth, old sausage, thanks. Very informative, I thought - not so much the battle of the sexes as the battle of the schemers, each trying to outdo each other to don the Clowns uniform and influence events to start a war in Syria so they can trouser enormous quantities of wonga.

    Sickening isn't it. Not so much the dogs of war as the bucks for war.

    Fortunately though, at least if Meyssan is correct, then the massing of British and American troops and war materiel in the US Al Tanf base will now be stood down - and doubtless ordered to return to their domestic barracks. Which please both the local pubs and soldiers enormously.

    Until I read that I had begun fearing the worse and that we were about to witness a military confrontation in Syria between the Anglo-Yanquis warmongers and Russia, Iran and Syria which could well have brought in the Israeli's too.

    It was a very dangerous and sheer madness. These neocons need to be placed in secure units and swathed in white coats with long arms...

    The Meyssan article:

    Four days to declare a Cold War

    by Thierry Meyssan
    The week that has just ended was exceptionally rich in events. But no media were able to report it, because they had all deliberately masked certain of their number in order to protect the story that was being woven by their government. London had attempted to provoke a major conflict, but lost to Russia, President Trump and Syria.


    VOLTAIRE NETWORK | DAMASCUS (SYRIA) | 20 MARCH 2018 عربي ESPAÑOL FRANÇAIS ITALIANO ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΆ PORTUGUÊS DEUTSCH
    Although it has the fourth largest army in the world, the United Kindom is unable to defy Russia without the support of allies. It therefore has to invent a casus belli to make its partners react and lead them to stand beside it.The British government and certain of its allies, including US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, have attempted to launch a Cold War against Russia.Their plan was to fabricate an attack against an ex-double agent in Salisbury and at the same time a chemical attack against the « moderate rebels » in the Ghouta. The conspirators’ intention was to profit from the efforts of Syria to liberate the suburbs of its capital city and the disorganisation of Russia on the occasion of its Presidential election. Had these manipulations worked, the United Kingdom would have pushed the USA to bomb Damascus, including the Presidential palace, and demand that the United Nations General Assembly exclude Russia from the Security Council.However, the Syrian and Russian Intelligence Services got wind of what was being plotted. They realised that the US agents in the Ghouta who were preparing an attack against the Ghouta were not working for the Pentagon, but for another US agency.In Damascus, the Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Fayçal Miqdad, set up an emergency Press conference for 10 March, in order to alert his fellow citizens. From its own side, Moscow had first of all tried to contact Washington via the diplomatic channels. But aware that the US ambassador, Jon Huntsman Jr, is the director of Caterpillar, the company which had supplied tunneling materials to the jihadists so that they could build their fortifications, Moscow decided to bypass the usual diplomatic channels.Here’s how things played out:12 March 2018

    The Syrian army seized two chemical weapons laboratories, the first on 12 March in Aftris, and the second on the following day in Chifonya. Meanwhile, Russian diplomats pushed the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to get involved in the criminal investigation in Salisbury.In the House of Commons, British Prime Minister Theresa May violently accused Russia of having ordered the attack in Salisbury. According to her, the ex-double agent Sergueï Skripal and his daughter were poisoned by a military nerve gas of a type « developed by Russia » under the name of « Novitchok ». Since the Kremlin considers Russian citizens who have defected as legitimate targets, it is therefore highly likely that they ordered the crime.« Novitchok » is known by what has been revealed by two Soviet personalities, Lev Fyodorov and Vil Mirzayanov. The scientist Fyodorov published an article in the Russian weekly Top Secret (Совершенно секретно) in July 1992, warning about the extremely dangerous nature of this product, and warning against the use of old Soviet weaponry by the Western powers to destroy the environment in Russia and make it unlivable. In October 1992, he published a second article in the News of Moscow (Московские новости) with a counter-espionage executive, Mirzayanov, denouncing the corruption of certain generals and the traffic of « Novitchok » in which they were involved. However, they did not know to whom they may have sold the product. Mirzayanov was first of all arrested for high treason, then released. Fyodorov died in Russia last August, but Mirzayanov is living in exile in the United States, where he collaborates with the Department of Defense.Russian ex-counter intelligence officer Vil Mirzayanov defected to the United States. Now 83 years old, he comments on the Skripal affair from Boston.« Novitchok » was fabricated in a Soviet laboratory in Nurus, in what is now Uzbekistan. During the dissolution of the Soviet Union, it was destroyed by a US team of specialists. Uzbekistan and the United States, by necessity, have therefore possessed and studied samples of this substance. They are both capable of producing it.British Minister for Foreign Affairs Boris Johnson summoned the Russian ambassador in London, Alexandre Iakovenko. He gave him an ultimatum of 36 hours to check if any « Novitchok » was missing from their stocks. The ambassador replied that none was missing, because Russia had destroyed all of the chemical weapons it had inherited from the Soviet Union, as witnessed by the OPCW, which had drawn up a certified report.After a telephone discussion with Boris Johnson, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in turn condemned Russia for the attack in Salisbury.Meanwhile, a debate was under way at the UN Security Council concerning the situation in the Ghouta. The permanent representative for the US, Nikki Haley, declared - « About one year ago, after the sarin gas attack perpetrated in Khan Cheïkhoun by the Syrian régime, the United States warned the Council. We said that faced with the systematic inaction of the international community, states are sometimes obliged to act on their own. The Security Council did not react, and the United States bombed the air base from which al Assad had launched his chemical attack. We are reiterating the same warning today ».The Russian Intelligence Services handed out documents from the US staff. They showed that the Pentagon was ready to bomb the Presidential palace and the Syrian Ministries, on the model of what it had done during the taking of Baghdad (3 to 12 April 2003).Commenting the declaration by Nikki Haley, the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, who had always called the attack in Khan Cheïkhoun a « Western manipulation », revealed that the false information which had led the White House into error and triggered the bombing of the Al-Chaayrate air base, had in fact come from a British laboratory which had never revealed how it came to possess its samples.13 March 2018

    The Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs published a Press release condemning a possible US military intervention, and announcing that if Russian citizens were harmed in Damascus, Moscow would riposte proportionally, since the Russian President is constitutionally responsible for the security of his fellow citizens.Bypassing the official diplomatic channels, Russian Chief of Staff General Valeri Guerassimov contacted his US counterpart General Joseph Dunford to inform him of his fear of a false flag chemical attack in Ghouta. Dunford took this information vey seriously, and alerted US Defense Secretary General Jim Mattis, who referred the matter to President Donald Trump. In view of the Russian insistence that this piece of foul play was being prepared without the knowledge of the Pentagon, the White House asked the Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, to identify those responsible for the conspiracy.We do not know the result of this internal enquiry, but President Trump acquired the conviction that his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was implicated. The Secretary of State was immediately asked to interrupt his official journey in Africa and return to Washington.Theresa May wrote to the General Secretary of the United Nations accusing Russia of having ordered the attack in Salisbury, and convened an emergency meeting of the Security Council. Without waiting, she expelled 23 Russian diplomats.Published one month and a half before the attack in Salisbury, Amy Knight’s book presents what was to become MI5’s thesis. The author herself maintains that she has not the slightest proof of what she is claiming.At the request of President of the House of Commons Interior Committee Yvette Cooper, British Secretary for the Interior Amber Rudd announced that MI5 (Military Interior Secret Services ) is going to re-open 14 enquiries into deaths which, according to US sources, were ordered by the Kremlin.By doing do, the British government adopted the theories of Professor Amy Knight. On 22 January 2018, this US Sovietologist published a very strange book - Orders to Kill - the Putin régime and political murder. The author, who is « the » specialist on the ex-KGB, attempts to demonstrate that Vladimir Putin is a serial killer responsible for dozens of political assassinations, from the terrorist attacks in Moscow in 1999 to the attack on the Boston Marathon in 2013, by way of the execution of Alexandre Litvinenko in London in 2006 or that of Boris Nemtsov in Moscow in 2015. However, she admits herself that there is absolutely no proof of her accusations.The European Liberals then joined the fray. Ex-Prime Minister of Belgium Guy Verhofstadt, who presides their group in the European Parliament, called on the European Union to adopt sanctions against Russia. His counterpart at the head of their British party, Sir Vince Cable, proposed a European boycott of the World Football Cup. And already, Buckingham Palace announced that the royal family has canceled their trip to Russia.The UK communications regulator, Ofcom, announced that it might ban the channel Russia Today as a retaliatory measure, even though RT has on no occasion violated British law.The Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs summoned the British ambassador in Moscow to inform him that reciprocal measures would soon be indicated in retaliation for the expulsion of Russian diplomats from London.President Trump announced on Twitter that he had fired his Secretary of State, with whom he had not yet been in contact. He was replaced by Mike Pompeo, ex-Director of the CIA, who, the night before, had confirmed the authenticity of the Russian information transmitted by General Dunford. On his arrival in Washington, Tillerson obtained confirmation of his dismissal from White House General Secretary General John Kelly.The ex-CEO of the largest multinational in the world, ExxonMobil, thought he was untouchable. But to his great surprise, Rex Tillerson was brutally dismissed by Donald Trump. The former believed he was serving the Anglo-Saxon world, while the latter considers him to be a traitor to his country.Ex-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is a product of the Texan middle class. He and his family worked for the US Scouts, of whom he became the National President (2010-12). Culturally close to England, he did not hesitate, when he became President of the mega-multinational Exxon-Mobil (2006-16), not only to wage a politically correct campaign favouring the acceptance of young gays into the Scouts, but also to recruit mercenaries in British Guiana. He is said to be a member of the Pilgrims Society, the most prestigious of Anglo-US clubs, presided by Queen Elizabeth II, a number of whose members were part of the Obama administration.During his functions as Secretary of State, the quality of his education provided a bond for Donald Trump, considered by US high society to be a buffoon. He was in disagreement with his President on three major subjects which allow us to define the ideology of the conspirators -
    Like London and the US deep state, he thought it would be useful to diabolise Russia in order to consolidate the power of the Anglo-Saxons in the Western camp ;
    Like London, he thought that in order to maintain Western colonialism in the Middle East, it was necessary to favour Iranian President Cheikh Rohani against the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei. He therefore supported the 5+1 agreement.
    Like the US deep state, he considered that the swing of North Korea towards the United States should remain secret, and be used to justify a military deployment which would be directed in reality against the People’s Repubic of China. He was therefore in favour of official talks with Pyongyang, but opposed to a meeting between the two heads of state.14 March 2018

    While Washington was still in shock, Theresa May spoke once again before the House of Commons to develop her accusation, while all around the world, British diplomats spoke to numerous inter-governmental organisations in order to broadcast the message. Responding to the Prime Minister, Blairist deputy Chris Leslie qualified Russia as a rogue state and demanded its suspension from the UN Security Council. Theresa May agreed to examine the question, but stressed that the outcome could only be decided by the General Assembly in order to avoid the Russian veto.The North Atlantic Council (NATO) met in Brussels at the request of the United Kingdom. The 29 member states drew a link between the use of chemical weapons in Syria and the attack in Salisbury. They then decided that Russia was « probably » responsible for these two events.Jens Stoltenberg, the Secretary General of NATO, and permanent representative for the United Kingdom to the North Atlantic Council Sarah MacIntosh. She is the ex-Director of Defence and Intelligence questions to the British Minister for Foreign Affairs, a post that she handed on to Jonathan Allen, current chargé d’affaires at the UNO.In New York, the permanent representative of Russia, Vasily Nebenzya, proposed to the members of the Security Council that they adopt a declaration attesting to their common will to shed light on the attack in Salisbury and handing over the enquiry to the OPCW in the respect of international procedures. But the United Kingdom refused any text which did not contain the expression that Russia was « probably responsible » for the attack.During the public debate which followed, UK chargé d’affaire Jonathan Allen represented his country. He is an agent of MI6 who created the British War Propaganda Service and gives active support to the jihadists in Syria. He declared - « Russia has already interfered in the affairs of other countries, Russia has already violated international law in Ukraine, Russia has comtempt for civilian life, as witnessed by the attack on a commercial aircraft over Ukraine by Russian mercenaries, Russia protects the use of chemical weapons by Assad (…) The Russian state is responsible for this attempted murder ». The permanent representative for France, François Delattre, who, by virtue of a derogation by President Sarkozy, was trained at the US State Department, noted that his country had launched an initiative to end the impunity of those who use chemical weapons. He implied that the initiative, originally directed at Syria, could also be turned against Russia.Russian ambassador Vasily Nebenzya pointed out that the session had been convened at London’s request, but that it is public at Moscow’s request. He observed that the United Kingdom is violating international law by treating this subject at the Security Council while keeping the OPCW out of its enquiry. He noted that if London had been able to identify the « Novotchik », it’s because it has the formula and can therefore make its own. He noted Russia’s desire to collaborate with the OPCW in the respect for international procedures.15 March 2018

    The United Kingdom published a common declaration which had been cosigned the night before by France and Germany, as well as Rex Tillerson, who at that moment was still US Secretary of State. The text reiterated British suspicions. It denounced the use of « a neurotoxic agent of military quality, and of a type developed by Russia », and affirmed that it was « highly probable that Russia is responsible for the attack ».The Washington Post published an op-ed piece by Boris Johnson, while the US Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, established new sanctions against Russia. These are not connected to the current affair, but to allegations of interference in US public life. The decree nonetheless mentions the attack in Salisbury as proof of the underhand methods of Russia.British Secretary for Defence, the young Gavin Williamson, declared that after the expulsion of its diplomats, Russia should « shut up and go away » (sic). This is the first time since the end of the Second World War that a representative of a permanent member state of the Security Council has employed such a vocabulary in the face of another member of the Council. Sergueï Lavrov commented - « He’s a charming young man. He must want to ensure his place in History, by making shock declarations [...] Perhaps he lacks education ».Throughout its long history, England has never hesitated to lie and betray its oath in order to defend its interests. This is how it earned its French nickname of « perfide Albion » (after the Latin name for England) Conclusion

    In the space of four days, the United Kingdom and its allies have laid the premises of a new division of the world, a Cold War.However, Syria is not Iraq and the UNO is not the G8 (from which Russia has been excluded because of its adhesion to Crimea and its support of Syria). The United States are not going to destroy Damascus, and Russia will not be excluded from the Security Council. After having resigned from the European Union, then having refused to sign the Chinese declaration about the Silk Road, the United Kingdom thought to improve its stature by eliminating a competitor. By this piece of dirty work, it imagined that it would acquire a new dimension and become the « Global Britain » announced by Madame May. But it is destroying its own credibility.

    His Mightiness, Sir Herbert, drew my attention to the following on FB to a blog article titled "The Murder of Nikolai Glushkov" which can be read HERE. For reasons I don't understand - being a technical imbecile - the article doesn't fully load in my browser and I've had to copy and paste it to read.

    The Off Guardian article that is referred to actually confirms my own earlier in-depth research into the murky Litvinenko death/affair; that it was a Mafia hit or due to self-exposure from mishandling Polonium-210 --- probably the latter --- which was then shamelessly jumped on by the British government of the time (given that he was working for MI6 and MI5 at the time) purely for propaganda purposes to finger Putin personally. The fact is that Litvinenko was involved with others in the smuggling of nuclear materials. This has been made more than clear by Mario Scaramelli and others associated with Italian mafia families.

    Now to the background substance:

    Putin is hated and detested in the UK by powerful, wealthy and greedy British elites for having out-witted and out-manoeuvred powerful greedy them over the Yukos Oil affair (and other schemes to controlRussian assets). There is no anger as powerful or longer lasting than having vast sums of Wonga torn out of sweaty palms just as they're about to contract shut.

    The short version is that the West had planned to plunder Russia blind following the collapse of the Soviet Union, and found the perfect foil for achieving that in the vodka-swilling Yeltsin, who would've sold his mother at auction at the time. I believe Yeltsin eventually grew to realise his capriciousness and the great damage he had done to Russia. In any event, he chose Vlad Putin to replace him and the bare-chested hero then set about to secure the vast Russian natural resources for Mother Russia and saw off the greedy Americans and British. This he achieved by reaching an informal agreement with the Russian oligarchs (a police term for the mafia), that the could keep their ill-gotten gains providing they left Russia and became permanent exiles in nations of their choosing. Most chose London. Secondly, some of their plunder would have to be reinvested back in Russia to elp it rise from the ashes. In exchange they were forced to forfeit their control of Russian entities like Yukos. This created a network of powerful and influential - and very, very wealthy - Russian crooks in London, some of whom simmered and have ever since sought to get rid of Yeltsin. The British security service knows this very well. And uses that discontent when the occasion arises - as with the Skripal's.

    With that background read on:

    The murder of Nikolai Glushkov
    March 17, 2018



    Hunting the wren


    The police have just announced that Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov, living in London at the time of his death, was murdered by compression to the neck. This came a week after the Skripal case in which, according to our press, there was an attempt by Russia to murder Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia.


    Two days ago the Russian newspaper Kommersant (Businessman), owned by oligarch Alisher Usmanov contained an article entitled “Strangulation on the Thames”.


    Do I believe the Russians were involved in the so-called attempted murder of the Skripals? No. I believe it was a false flag set up by our government to scupper the World Cup. Do I believe that some Russian agents may have killed Glushkov? Quite possibly. That murder opens up a whole can of worms.


    In one way it could have been done to demonstrate to Theresa May just how the Russian secret services commit murder. They have never used a nerve agent in the past and never tried to endanger anybody but the target. If this theory is correct then our government is to blame for Glushkov’s death. Without the Skripal nonsense this murder would have been unnecessary. Of course it may not be the Russians. That we will never know.


    As with all real murder enquiries they are rarely solved within days, like the Skripal farrago. Before an arrest is made there needs to be a suspect who can be arrested. That is where Boris Johnson, already a laughing stock on the world stage, made his big mistake claiming a 9.98 out of 10 certainty that Vladimir Putin was to blame. Come on then Boris, tell us who killed Glushkov.


    The Can of Worms


    Amid all the hype of the Skripal false-flag a real murder took place eight days after that alleged event. Glushkov’s death was formerly denoted as ‘unexplained’ and it took our police two days to say pretty much the same thing as Kommersant had claimed earlier. My purpose here is not to describe the circumstances of Glushkov’s death, though I understand that his daughter found the 68 year old’s body.


    Glushkov was a friend of Boris Berezovsky, who allegedly committed suicide. He was part of the get-rich quick oligarch fraternity of Russians who screwed their country and settled in the cesspool of London money-launderers. Some might refer to this clique as the Russian mafia. He had a top executive position with the Russian airline Aeroflot and was found guilty of large-scale fraud. He was sentenced to eight years in a penal colony for siphoning off millions of rubles belonging to Aeroflot.


    Now here’s the rub. According to an article in OffGuardian an individual tried to help Glushkov escape from hospital and avoid justice. That individual was Andrei Lugovoi. The OffGuardian article which everyone should read says:


    “It also turns out that Lugovoi not only had a close association with Berezovsky right up to the moment of Litvinenko’s death, but was also convicted by a Russian court shortly after Berezovsky fled Russia of trying to arrange the escape of Nikolai Glushkov, one of Berezovsky’s close associates, from a hospital where he was in pre-trial detention on a fraud charge.”


    For those who did not follow the Litvinenko farce Lugovoi was one of the two people accused of killing Alexander Litvinenko, the other being Dmitry Kovtun. According to our media, and Sir Robert Owen who pronounced in the Litvinenko Inquiry, these were KGB agents, when in fact they were small-time criminals and friends of Litvinenko, Berezovsky and other oligarchs.


    The problems this is likely to cause are massive. This murder will show that the two aforementioned Russians were not responsible for the death of Litvinenko, who was probably smuggling polonium 210 on behalf of Berezovsky. Therefore Russia could have had him murdered to bring to light the injustice of the false accusations against Lugovoi and Kovtun for the murder of Litvinenko. At the same time it shows what a load of tosh the Skripal business is and how much of our taxes have been squandered on the show to scupper the World Cup.


    How this will eventually pan out is anyone’s guess but it will take a while and be much harder for fictional detectives like Miss Marples and Boris Johnson to solve in a fortnight. This story really could run and run. At the moment the score is Russia 2 – UK/US 0.

    While many good points to question the official narrative are posted above, I feel I should comment on one thing that might well not be evidence of the authorities faking a real attack...that being the issue of the unprotected fire and police near men in full chemical-warfare or biohazard suits. I have trained in Toxicology and even had course work on organophosphate nerve agents [used in both pesticides and nerve poisons such as VX, tabin, sarin, and Novichuk, among others]. Most of these nerve agents are liquid or low-melting solids and do not vaporize - i.e. if one did not touch them, there is little hazard in their floating in the air, and in the air to harm your lungs or other parts of one's body. They usually need to be touched by the skin to enter the body - or administered orally. They can be made to be air-borne, but that is rare and brief in time that they would be present before being blown away. While details on Novichuks [they are a class, not a single compound] is scarce, and we do NOT know which one this is - if it is a Novichuk at all. I have heard only one person trained in this field mention that one of the Novichuks would kill anyone in a room or area by both air transport and contact; all others said that contact was necessary. All evidence so far seems to point to that - that touching it was necessary. This seems to be how the policeman affected was. He physically helped the two individuals and in doing so likely touched some of whatever compound was on their body or clothes or on the table, chairs or other environmental items. So, it may well be the men from Porton Down knew this could only be of danger if touched - and thus fire/policemen nearby not in hazmat or chemical warfare garb is not as strange as it seems - assuming they were told to watch and not touch anything. This does not take away from any of the other anomalies pointed out. The proximity to Porton Down is rather 'odd' in itself - as that place is where they make, test, sample, store and do other things with bio and chemical weapons of all sorts. I will be interested to hear what the UN inspectors say it is and where they got their sample from [chain of evidence involved]. They will NOT assign blame, only make a statement as to what the agent is and its physiological properties. Actually, by treaty, the UK was obligated to let the UN do this and not do it themselves and announce it - they were free to do it, but not to announce it and assign blame by treaty. It is generally agreed that most major nations [not some smaller ones] did in fact destroy their large stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons - but it is also generally known that all retained small amounts and anyway could at short notice produce any they had destroyed [hours to a few days]. Most of the new ones are binary agents [two harmless chemicals which when mixed produce a deadly compound - many with NO antidote of any kind]. Lovely World we live in.

    Thank you. This is what I mainly come here for: Opinion and links on current events informed by deep-polical expertise. Besides Craig Murray, whose site has now suffered a DoS-attack, I recommend Moon of Alabama. Here are some questions journalists should ask:

    Could be a very good point, Pete. My take though is that the pictures were purely intended to feed the media frenzy and make the public scared and create a propaganda effect.

    And yet we really don't know that Novichok was used --- or for that matter that any nerve agent was used. The doctor simply says "poisoning", and that makes more sense, as all three victims are still alive.

    The fact is that there has been no actual evidence made available by the UK. Thus far it's all allegations and rhetoric that clearly has a propaganda objective. We, the public, are left to ponder the meaning of phrases like "highly likely" that has zero legal credibility, as it is a simply the judgement of of a Prime Minister weighing god only knows what evidence as opposed to a court judge weighing evidence in the public domain.

    We also are asked to know what "of a type designed by Russia" means when used to point the finger at Russia? Many observers have noted that a Mercedes is a car of a type developed by Germans, but it doesn't mean that everyone who owns and rives a Mercedes is German. For formulae is really quite silly and as Craig Murray has shown, was cobbled together as a compromise because the senior scientists at Porton Down refused point blank to sign off on the Novichok being Russian (if indeed Novichok was used).

    Nor do we know what actually happened to the police DSgt. The story changes. Also, DSgt's are not first responders. Plods do that. So the DSgt didn't sufferer whatever it was racing to the aid of the Skripal's - as the media reported. It was something else. Nor do we know if the policeman was just a detective or a Special Branch officer. If he were the latter it would suggest something far darker was taking place. But we don't know either way as actual information is being kept a minimum. My suspicion is that there has been a D Notice thrown over the whole affair.

    On the subject of nerve agents being used kill people, there is evidence showing that Eastern European criminal clans have used that before. In 1996, Forbes carried an article (still available online) titled "Godfather of the Kremlin". It was about Boris Berezovsky. In that article was this para:

    "Assassination is a tool of business competition. Scores of business leaders and media personalities have been killed. Ivan Kivelidi, a banker and founder of the Russian Business Roundtable, was murdered last year by poison (an obscure nerve toxin) applied to the rim of his coffee cup. Neither this nor any other of Russia's most famous contract killings has been solved."

    I mention this in passing to show it doesn't have to be a state sponsored event if it were a nerve agent attack. And we know that the formulae for Novichok has been in the public domain since the 1990's. Any capable chemist with a modern lab could make any of the Novichoks. They were designed on that basis, in fact, using widely available commercial components. No one can actually blame Russia because Russia has no Novichok to compare to. The last of its chemical stockpile were destroyed in 2017, as publicly confirmed by the OPCW. So, how could the British government reach the conclusion that it would only be Russia? It doesn't make sense. Nor does it make the slightest bit of sense that Russia would order such a hit, especially weeks before the presidential election and just months before the World Cup. The idea is preposterous.

    Moreover, in London the Russian exile community is a tight clan, most wealthy, some extremely so; they all tend to congregate in the same restaurants and clubs and there are many rivalries, not just from the opposing mafia's, but politically too, with numerous powerful exiles working to overthrow Putin. And let's be certain on the Skripal affair, Putin has, yet again, been personally targeted. Especially for our resident Foreign Secretary in Fool, Boris Johnson.

    Toxic Dagger

    Who knew that just a few weeks before the Skripal attack, thousands of soldiers and CBW specialist participated in a CBW exercise called Toxic Dagger that was to respond to Jihadists who had acquired a nerve toxin (Sarin) with plans to use this in a public place. The exercise saw the soldiers mount attacks on the Jihadi stronghold, amongst other aspects.

    That exercise took place on.... ta da! Salisbury Plain, again just down the road from Salisbury town and Porton Down itself. In fact, specialists from PD took part in that exercise.

    Over the last almost three weeks I've assembled a very large file on this affair and spent a great deal of time conducting further deep research. But I don't have time to condense all of that in one hit, so am responding piecemeal to this thread, adding bits and pieces as and when I can. Hence this rather long response.

    Boris Johnson is a Troglodyte with a permanent bad hair day. I agree Dave that the most suspicious and perhaps damning thing is not what is presented - but what is missing, i.e. hard evidence and facts. They have a great MSM story - but no facts and now 'facts' are starting to be contradicted with the official story. If they really had the 'goods' on the Russians or anyone else, why not produce it....why not let us know about the officer and at least the condition of all three - which is kept VERY vague to the point where one doesn't have a clue if they are getting better, going to survive, even in hospital. Why is the rank, branch and name of the officer being hidden? Blaming Putin is really a bit of a stretch....and where is the proof? or even some evidence pointing in that direction? Very odd event. A lot of deaths in the UK have centered around bio and chemical weapons - or those who were experts on them....a few too many to be coincidence methinks. Any major nation can secretly produce nerve agents or other nasties [and likely have some always secretly available]. They have known to be used on assassinations disguised to look like natural deaths. Whoever did this with whatever they did it with did it rather publicly. Instead of giving it to them at home or far from where they could get any help - it was done in semi-public location - where they were likely to be found before death - if they really were poisoned - which I'm inclined to believe they were - though we have no idea with what or how - let alone who. I guess they call a commission and have someone who is sure to give the OK to the official version. It could be true, but no one has even tried to produce evidence that it is and much now seems to point in quite other directions. A lot of very strange deaths occur in the UK...I'd still like to know about the computer guy who died zipped into a NorthFace storage bag. I have one myself and I don't fit and don't know how he did alive either.....but I digress....they never solve the old ones and always come up with new ones for the tabloid press to feed-frenzy on.....keeping the public's attention from what is really going on - the old magician's trick.
