according to the guy who invented it they're both goners regardless of what the nhs do, which doesn't sound good for the copper who got caught up in it.

UK prime minister. UK police and hospital - only "highly probable".
Has anyone heard anything from police or hospital?
Ah, yes, it's top secret.


So what? "Higher" doesn't necessarily mean "more secret".
It's not a matter of national security, as Mr. Johnson tries to present it.


Yes. Pictures, videos, timeline protocols, blood test, clothes and flower samples with tracks of the poison on them - professionals know better how to tell proof from fake.
All this has been denied. Still no clear explanation, why.
Have you considered applying for the job as Hope Hicks successor in the White House? You seem to have all the necessary qualities

As it's now being investigated whether the substance was in the daughter's luggage when she flew into the UK from Moscow, you better believe it's a matter of national security If it was in her suitcase, and she'd had reason to open her case at either airport, this could have gone pandemic by now.
Guess who has thrown in this version? CNN of course
As usually, they skipped "highly likely"

But seriously, I wonder if the flack Corbyn is getting is really warranted. What he said in the HoC on Wednesday doesn't seem unreasonable.

I think the main issue with his HoC speech was using it to link cuts to security budgets in the past few years, so inferring that if the tories had increased spending on the police and mi5/6 somehow this wouldn't have happened. Which seemed to pee off both tory and labour mp's.

Check this out from The Richie Allen Show. He's brilliant and hits on a lot of good points. I thank you for your posts. You're a rare breed on this site and I'm sure other sites as well. It takes courage because most individuals "follow the herd" and are delusional at best. More people are needed like you and others as the "powers that be" are changing the rules of the game and not in the people's favor. Many people are simple minded with no critical thinking skills whatsoever, so they want simple explanations. Facts and truth mean nothing! In fact they call facts-and-truth "conspiracies."... To them it's always....The cowboys with the black stetson = the bad ones. The white stetson = the good ones. So, the same for the western media and oligarchs = always the good ones, the Russians = the bad ones. They believe EXACTLY what the "authorities" say and question nothing! Amazing! Those who are concerned about this world and what it will be for their children and grandchildren will question and investigate what the "powers that be" are up to. In fact, in the UK they are calling anyone who questions "their" narrative "a Russian agent/puppet" in order to bully people into not questioning the narrative including journalists and the media. Corbyn questioned the narrative and was bullied by his own MPs. Britain's Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said "Russia should go away, it should shut-up" is nothing more than the words of an immature idiot. These are the types of people who are in leading the western world! They are NO MATCH for Putin under any circumstances...IMHO They create something out of nothing, that's what the western neo-cons do. Under the Vienna Convention Russia should be granted consular access to its citizens. Britain won't allow it and doesn't even respect international law just like the US. There are many reasons why Britain and Theresa May, known as (Theresa May-Not due to the Brexit fiasco) are creating this scandal. One thing is it takes attention away from May-Not's lack of will and determination to get Brexit moving along. They want to renege on the "people's" vote...and this is a great distraction. However, this may not be only one reason. UK is not in a good position in the world and this "puts them on the world stage" so to speak and they can feel like heroes. Besides the constant news about the breeding gangs that are still in operation in the country and the increasing no-go zones like in Bradford, England. Not questioning the UK's bullsh*t is foolish. Unfortunately, many are not up-to-date about what's happening in world politics and more than likely brainwashed by the the BBC: British Brainwashing Corporation, a part of the propaganda along with other western media. Posters will attack you like lunatics and answer you with silly posts...LOL because they don't know any better! Anyway, here is the video. I'm done...Have a nice day...!

Unfortunately, not only this forum lacks "conspiracy theorists" - too many people in the West think Richie Allen or RT lie, just because tell something different. And I wouldn't care if it resulted only in a growing number of people who prefer "simple explanations" over "conspiracy". Maybe I'd even get a better pay then
But, unfortunately, most of wars in the very and not very recent past immediately followed after some "simple explanations". Therefore, developing a passion for "simple explanations" in peoples heads should be considered a crime against mankind.
Urging people to think independently is everyone's obligation. This helps to keep the world safe.

Re: Poisoning of two Russians and a police officer in Salisbury, UK

For whatever it's worth, Craig Murray writes: Of A Type Developed By Liars

"I have now received confirmation from a well placed FCO source that Porton Down scientists are not able to identify the nerve gas as being of Russian manufacture, and have been resentful of the pressure being placed on them to do so. Porton Down would only sign up to the formulation “of a type developed by Russia” after a rather difficult meeting where this was agreed as a compromise formulation."

(CIA's Russia hacking claims dismissed as 'bulls***' by former UK ambassador Craig Murray "I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack")

Re: Poisoning of two Russians and a police officer in Salisbury, UK

UK police launch murder investigation into death of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov

"Mr Glushkov was found dead at his home in the New Malden area of London on 13 March. Police say Mr Glushkov, whose family has been informed, died from "compression to the neck"."

Former Georgia president Mikheil Saakashvili says the West should fear Putin

"One of President Vladimir Putin's longest standing opponents has told Sky News that the Salisbury attack was the consequence of Western indifference to an ever-evolving threat from Russia and that the UK was targeted because it is perceived as weak."
