"It is now time that the Russian state comes forward and explains exactly what has gone on"
British Home Secretary Sajid Javid 7/5/2018
After chairing a meeeting of the COBRA committee on national security matters today the British Home Secretary Sajid Javid, said to be a leading candidate to be the UK's next Prime Minister, took aim at Russia in connection with the latest incident that caused a British couple to become critically ill when he spoke in the House of Commons.
Javid claimed that Russia was using the UK as a "poison dumping ground".
A spokesman for the Russian Embassy said any notion of Russian involvement was "merely speculative".
Police in the UK are saying they believe that Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess handled an "unknown" contaminated item.
British media speculated on what it might be with Friday's headline in "The Times" having "poison syringe" in it while the "Metro" newspaper headlined "Novichok 'on a cigarette butt'".
But many of the headlines focus on Brexit and the increasingly disturbing situation as the Prime Minister, Theresa May, tries to shove a steadily watered down Brexit into the throats of her cabinet and the Conservative Party.
Her critical meeting with her cabinet at the Prime Minister's country home, Checkers, begins in hours.
If the last two years have taught us anything, its that Russia is a wonderfully useful boogeyman who can be used to cover domestic political failures.
The UK has yet to prove that Russia had anything to do with the first nerve agent attack. So this is just more propaganda.
Looks like it is the UK who needs to do some ‘splaining. Who do they think they are kidding?
Why should Russia explain what the UK is doing with the toxic agents it is making at Porton Down?
The UK and its globalist masters are the ones who are benefiting and are clearly performing these false flag attacks as part of their anti-Trump spy campaign they’ve been running ever since Christopher Steel.
Haarruummph.. That's a pantload. They'd hafta get in line behind all those muzzy countries. d;^)
Please watch some Russian TV for even just two minutes. The West/America is always their boogeyman, so I guess the West is returning the favor. The people there have yet to hold their own despotic elite accountable. The smart ones who save up emigrate and add to the brain drain. Hence why you find so many Russians in UK, Germany, and America in the first place. It's only now the UK is picky about letting Russians in. Roman Abromovich owns Chelsea football team and couldn't get a visa.
With Brexit boiling up and threatening Prime Minister May and the Tories, the need for a distraction is critical.
My 2 cents. Russia has a deep state much like we have in the USA. Both are out of control.
That is what I suspect too.
Funny sentence re “ a British couple became violently ill when he (Home Scy Javid) spoke in the House of Commons”.
I guess his speech make them sick. /sarc
Why can’t the English teach their journalists how to write?
(Rex Harrison updated - “My Fair Lady”)
Let’s see. The Home Secy etc. won’t let Pres. Trump meet with Nigel Farage (according to media reports)
They jail Tommy Robinson for some minor “Free Speech” violation (a gag order just like some of our judges have imposed on Flynn, etc).
They won’t let Mike Savage into England but will let radical Islamic clerics in.
Have they gone after Mark Steyn yet? If not, they will.
And they are going to ask the Russian to explain about the “poison” killings and illnesses in England attributed to their chemical weapon.
Shirley, “shorely” and “surtainly” (”Curly”) they jest!
Gee, I though British humor died when Bennie Hill did. My bad!
2 very appreciated cents. Thank you. Though at least here the people can put up a fight and term limits exist...ish.
If the Russkies can contrive things, including the location of Russian IC defectors, so that their two poisonings occurred within 5 miles of a major British chemical weapons facility, they are crafty indeed. Even if Russian spooks did the deeds, the British gov’t must explain how they let this happen.
MI-5 or MI-6 is where the poisoning of Skripak was contrived. This was a false flag pointing the finger of blame at Putin. I don’t know why, or understand why so many people are pushing for a Russian USA war.
“British Home Secretary Sajid Javid 7/5/2018 “
Are there any Brits with English names running anything anymore?
I agree with you. I also doubt that it was the poison they claimed which was supposed to be fatal 100% of the time. Some initial speculation was that it was fentayl.
