Skripal.

Is it me, or does it feel like we are being led down a 'we must go to war with Iraq' type of scenario, but the war is with the Ruskies this time. "All the evidence indicates that..., the intelligence assessment indicates that...." Russia did it?

Even the BBC hasn't quite stepped over the certainty line and is keeping it at allegations and "almost certainly" line. Are we in danger that, once again, a British Prime Minister is deliberately misleading us on, or is naive enough to believe the 'evidence' presented to her and base decisions on?

Many unanswered questions, not enough confirmation for my liking.

I understand where you are coming from but hesitate to believe that even TM would be so stupid. I think that she is taking some courage in the fact that Amigo Trump is supporting her accusations----to suit his own ends, of course.

This is something that will always be denied by Russia so it can never be proved. It will be just one more hitch in Anglo-Russian relations.

It just seems odd that 2 professional spetnatz type assassins would so overtly travel to Britain and smear a door handle with military grade Novichok, only for the stuff not to work and for the mission to not be completed. They either are not GRU trained or total Boris's.

Theresa - a character reference?

Read this in the comments column on another site – I thought they were being rather a bit too sympathetic :LOL:

"Much as with Blair, you can perceive the character of May by her choice of people with whom to surround herself as well as by what she says and does. It shows May up as a thin-skinned, authoritarian, deceitful, mendacious, selfishly ambitious, stubborn and intellectually-challenged bully who is totally outside of her narrow zone of competence. Poor, poor Britain for being lumbered with its worst leader in living memory when it is treading its most difficult path in 80 years. Perhaps this is some kind of divine judgement."

Well it worked in killing some unknowns but what I'm surprised about considering they quaranteed most of Salisbury, that no animals were killed in the process.

The most leathal toxin applied all over the place and what with animals most acute sense of smell sight and sound capability I would have expected at least a few more curious animals to take a whiff to see what the stuff was???

Not even a dead fly or butterfly?

Many things don't add up.

Police officer also survived.

I suspect it was the French.

Bear in mind Russia has enemies and in the spook world before the World Cup not unreasonable for Russia's enemies to try something like this.


Don't know if you recall but prior to 9/11 and nuclear grade stuff bought from Africa shiite there was talk of envelopes with lethal white substance sent in US. Nothing came of it and occurance dissapeared as quickly as it arose.


Make believe world that we live in, who knows???


Trust no one! :whistling

With the present crew manning the ship I'm starting to think that you might be right!

Yes, and did you notice the full scale NBC quarantine around the London hotel where they stayed a couple of nights and found traces of Novichok? And don't forget that they are going to dump all the trains and the aircraft they used in some Cotswolds landfill, not forgetting the cordoning off of Gatwick and Heathrow because of the safety risk to the public, all that headline news you haven't missed yet?

It's almost as if someone is playing tricks on the UK at the expense of some has-been double agent and a few others no-one cares about.
