  1. Quiet Guy

    What a ****

    Egan has a point. But has he thought this through? I'd be careful what I wished for ...
  2. I'm not sure what you're advocating for. Could you explain what you want us to do?
  3. I expect the EU will do everything it can to make the Brexit process as unpleasant as possible. Making an example of us to discourage any other members states from resisting Brussels will be the order of the day, not making new alliances. Just to be clear: I'm in favour of Brexit and value the long term advantages of sovereignty before short term economic discomfort.
  4. A decent summary of the conspiracy theories here: https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/salisbury-attack-truth-facts-skripal-novichok-poisoning-a8527711.html
  5. When I saw the first reports, I assumed it would be a false alarm. As you say, Wow! Surely this is collateral damage. There are various reports about how casually Litvinenko's assassins handled polonium 210. Further contamination in Salisbury fits a pattern of behaviour, unfortunately. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/11/litvinenko-killers-radiation-trail-london-inquiry
  6. Just found this: https://www.commonspace.scot/articles/12746/spinwatch-publish-confidential-media-d-notices-skripal-case# So it seems our security services do want to exert some control over the reporting. Before our conspiracy theorists start orgasming themselves, I remind you that the DSMA notices system is generally used for sensible reasons and have been ignored by our press if they felt they were not justified. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DSMA-Notice
  7. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/03/22/police-officer-injured-russian-spy-poisoning-life-will-never/ Regarding suspects, persons using nerve agent poisons are probably not the sorts that leave, say, a bloody glove or some such at the crime scene.
  8. Hmm. I appreciate a good trolling (?) as much as anyone but I wonder if the policeman would see the funny side if he came across that? Anyway, to up the conspiracy stakes even further that Zugzwang, we need a bit more senationalism. So far, we have proposed police and government involvement. What's next? Royal family? Lizards?
  9. OK. Errol is offering a radical conspiracy theory that a branch of the UK government decided to hit Skripal and his daughter with a nerve agent to shut him up about the Trump dossier. Or it was another Russian poisoning. Please have a look at my posts on 24th and 28th April. I'd appreciate it if anybody who buys Errol's conspiracy theory would put their hand up so that we can compare notes later.
  10. 'Everyone is afraid': Novichok scientist fears for his safety after claiming his lab developed nerve agent used in Salisbury attack Vladimir Uglev says Moscow’s denial of culpability over the attempted assassinations of Sergei and Yulia Skripal do not withstand scrutiny https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/novichok-scientist-fears-life-russia-lab-nerve-agent-salisbury-attack-vladimir-uglev-a8326076.html I've no way of knowing how credible this guy is but the article is not without interest.
  11. There is a pattern. Georgi Markov assasinated with ricin in 1978 - attributed to the Bulgarian secret service but probably with Russian assistance Chechen leader Samir Saleh Abdullah poisoned with an envelope containing a nerve agent in 2002 - responsibility openly acknowledged by the FSB Roman Tsepov died of radiation poisoning in 2004 after taking tea at an FSB office Viktor Yushchenko poisoned with dioxin in 2004 leading to facial disfigurement Alexander Litvinenko poisoned by polonium-210 in 2006 Attempted poisonings of Vladimir Kara-Murza 2015 and 2017 Sergei Skripal and his daughter with some sort of nerve agent 2018 https://www.the-american-interest.com/2015/06/04/a-short-history-of-russian-poisoning/ http://foreignpolicy.com/2018/03/09/a-brief-history-of-attempted-russian-assassinations-by-poison/ https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/21/world/europe/moscow-kremlin-silence-critics-poison.html
  12. Overall, I'm a bit sceptical about the Russian denial. A Russian double agent convicted of high treason was poisoned. Occam's razor says the Russians did it. I'm open to the idea that some sort of criminal element was involved but if that's so, then questions about access to nerve agents arise. That said, I found this interesting: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-19/porton-down-scientists-under-extreme-pressure-confirm-nerve-gas-russian Best to wait for the facts to come out - I'm pretty sure they will in time.
  13. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-15/russian-plane-loses-tons-gold-and-precious-metals-takeoff So will all of the debris be recovered?
  14. C'mon now Which one of you did it ? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-27/massive-100-kilogram-gold-coin-worth-45-million-stolen-german-museum
