UK calls on Russia to give details of nerve attack after two more people struck down

[Editor’s note: After the deeply embarrassing farce surrounding the Skripals, I hoped that we would never again hear about ‘Novichok’ or have to be subjected to some of the most blatant lying by members of the British government about those evil Russians.

A vain hope, it has taken just 4 months for the second instalment of the embarrassing farce to appear and no, it’s nothing to do with ‘ze Germans’ despite what some will try to claim.

Timing is often everything with these fabricated false narratives and in this instance there appear to be two events this latest instalment of the farce has been timed to coincide with. First, we have the World Cup in Russia, a tournament that has so far been an unqualified success, a festival of football free of any hint of animosity or violence (off the pitch at least) and has done much to boost the image of Russia and the warm, friendly and hospitable nature of it’s people.

Secondly, there are the celebrations of the The National Health Service’s 70th anniversary, which is today, 5th July 2018. As the NHS’s own website puts it “It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the achievements of one of the nation’s most loved institutions”. The survival of the Skripals has been oft-touted as a great success for the NHS and no doubt, these two new victims will also survive and maximum propaganda value will be extracted in praise of the chronically underfunded NHS which is struggling to manage the nation’s health problems due to decades of government mis-management and lack of resources.

There is a third aspect to consider, that this latest installment in the Novichoks bollocks is intended to serve as a distraction from something else that the government doesn’t want to be publicised.

Whatever the reasons behind this case, rest assured, it is a load of bollocks, just more embarrassing Russia bashing; confirmation of the fraud will probably come in the disgusting form of Boris Johnson, our most treacherous and vile Foreign Secretary who will most likely repeat his shameful and deeply embarrassing performance from the Skripal case where he was very quick to start spouting foul lies and rhetoric aimed at Russia.

UK calls on Russia to give details of nerve attack after two more people struck down

By Henry Nicholls

AMESBURY, England (Reuters) – Britain called on Russia to give details about the Novichok nerve agent attack on a former double agent and his daughter after two British citizens were struck down with the same poison.

The two Britons, a 44-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man, were critically ill after an apparently chance encounter with the poison near the site of the March attack on ex-double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Britain accused Russia of poisoning the Skripals with Novichok – a nerve agent developed by the Soviet military during the Cold War – in what is the first known offensive use of such a chemical weapon on European soil since World War Two.

Russia, which is currently hosting the soccer World Cup, has denied any involvement in the March incident and suggested the British security services had carried out the attack to stoke anti-Moscow hysteria.

“The Russian state could put this ‘wrong’ right. They could tell us what happened, what they did and fill in some of the significant gaps that we are trying to pursue,” British Security Minister Ben Wallace said.

“I’m waiting for the phone call from the Russian state.”

The two Britons, who were taken ill on Saturday, were initially thought to have taken an overdose of heroin or crack cocaine, but tests by the Porton Down military research centre showed they had been exposed to Novichok.

Britain should ask Russian experts to help investigate the poisoning, Vladimir Shamanov, head of the Russian parliament’s defence committee, was cited as saying by the RIA news agency.

It is unclear how the two Britons, whose background has nothing to suggest a link to the world of espionage or the former Soviet Union, came into contact with the poison, which is slow to decompose.

“The working assumption would be that these are victims of either the consequences of the previous attack or something else, but not that they were directly targeted,” Wallace said.

Paramedics were called on Saturday morning to a house in Amesbury after the woman, named by media as Dawn Sturgess, collapsed. They returned later in the day when the man, Charlie Rowley, also fell ill.

Amesbury is located seven miles (11 km) north of Salisbury, where Skripal – a former colonel in Russian military intelligence who betrayed dozens of agents to Britain’s MI6 foreign spy service – and his daughter were found slumped unconscious on a bench on March 4.

NOVICHOK CONTAMINATION

Health chiefs said the risk to the public was low, repeating their earlier advice given after the Skripals were taken ill that the public should wash their clothes and use cleansing wipes to wash down personal items.

But the exposure of two British citizens to a such a dangerous nerve agent will stoke fears that Novichok could be lingering at sites around the ancient English city of Salisbury.

Andrea Sella, professor of inorganic chemistry at University College London, said Novichok nerve agents were designed to be quite persistent and did not decompose quickly.

“That means that if a container or a surface was contaminated with this material it would remain a danger for a long time,” Sella said.

“It will be vital to trace the movements of this couple to identify where they might have come into contact with the source.”

After the Skripal poisoning, police investigators in protective hazmat suits scoured Salisbury. They may return, police said.

The March attack prompted the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the Cold War as allies sided with Prime Minister Theresa May’s view that Moscow was either responsible or had lost control of the nerve agent.

Moscow also hit back by expelling Western diplomats, questioning how Britain knows that Russia was responsible and offering rival interpretations, including that it amounted to a plot by British secret services.

UPDATED: Oh no, not another Novichok farce, surely?


Veterans Today

[Update: Predictably, the ‘mysterious substance’ has now been identified as ‘Novichok’ but little else has been said about how this couple came in contact with it. Clearly, this is another BS psy-op]

[Editor’s note: This story only broke this morning, less than an hour ago, but immediately, I am extremely suspicious. Amesbury is 10 miles from Salisbury, where the Skripal farce took place, meaning it is close to Porton Down, the UK’s notorious bio-weapons laboratory.

The fact this story has been reported by the national media (I saw it on both the BBC and Sky morning news shows) most likely means that, like the Skripal case, it is going to become some kind of psy op and will most likely be linked to the Skripals or Porton Down or perhaps both. Then expect the ‘evil Russians’ to be implicated, probably via some bloviating speech by Boris Johnson.

It is too early to say anything more, but we will be keeping a close eye on this case as it already reeks to high hell of fish and male bovine excreta… Ian]

‘Major incident’ declared after two collapse in Wiltshire

A man and woman feared to have been exposed to an unknown substance are in a critical condition, prompting police to declare a major incident.

The pair, both in their 40s, were found unconscious in Amesbury, Wiltshire, on Saturday.

Officers initially thought the collapse was drugs-related but have since said they are “open-minded” as to the cause.

Wiltshire Police said further tests on the substance were being carried out in a bid to identify it.

Amesbury is about ten miles from Salisbury, where former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia were poisoned by a suspected military nerve agent in March.

Police and emergency services initially believed the pair may have taken illegal drugs, however further tests are now being carried out

While it was not clear if a crime had been committed, the force said, a number of scenes in Amesbury and Salisbury known to have been frequented by the couple had been cordoned off.

“It was initially believed that the two patients fell ill after using possibly heroin or crack cocaine from a contaminated batch of drugs,” the force said.

“They are both currently receiving treatment for suspected exposure to an unknown substance at Salisbury District Hospital,” it added.

Public Health England (PHE) said it did not believe there was a “significant health risk” to the wider public, although its advice was being continually assessed.

Officials said the hospital was “open as usual” and advised patients to attend routine appointments unless contacted and advised to do otherwise.

FFWN: False flags are getting highly unsubtle

"Novichok" smears the World Cup..."Iranian bomb plot" smears Rouhani's trip to Europe...do we see a pattern?

Russia is reaping a PR bonanza at the World Cup—and suddenly “Novichok” magically appears next door to Porton Down.

Iran is about to rally Europe against the sanctions—and just as Rouhani is touching down in Switzerland, an “Iranian bomb plot” explodes into the headlines, triggering a Bibi Netanyahu barking fit.

The Syrian government is about to take back the southern part of the country—and suddenly….well, tune in next week and see if the false flag warnings currently making the rounds turn out to have been prescient.

Here is the link to the stories we covered this week with special guest commentator Jonathan Revusky:

I wonder...do these next two work for Porton Down? It wouldn’t surprise me.....

Dawn Sturgess, 44, died in hospital on Sunday evening after falling ill on 30 June.

Charlie Rowley, 45, who was also exposed to the nerve agent in Amesbury, remains critically ill in hospital.

Theresa May said she was “appalled and shocked” by the death, which comes after the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury.

A post-mortem examination of Ms Sturgess, from Durrington, is due to take place and her family has been informed, police said.
