So, what's the theory this time?

The theory that the Kremlin/Putin tried to murder a perpetual gadfly who, even if he doubled his popular support, wouldn't even come close to winning the election by putting the poison that would most instantly point to them in his tea at the airport fell apart as thoroughly as the theory that Obama is secretly a Muslim born in Africa.

And this claim contradicts the theory it was put in a water bottle in his hotel room (something that requires more suspension of disbelief than the theory Hillary Clinton was running a child sex slave ring out of the basement of a certain pizza restaurant) so what's the new theory?

Navalny was novichoked. What more can you say? It's the way they roll there.

If it happens on the street, it's murder. If it happens between politicians, especially those who challenge Putin, it's business as usual.

I'd completely understand if the clothing had been destroyed for health safety reasons, but if the local police aren't corrupt, they'd have triple-bagged them as evidence for a future trial. Not all Russians are corrupt, but I fear the people involved were told, clearly, by Moscow to find nothing and look for nothing ... or else.

A rare miss from the murdering Tziny Putin.

Western propaganda gets dumbier and dumbier. They want us to believe that the vacationeer on the photo is exactly how the victim of "the most lethal poison in the world" looks like?

I'm waiting for a western leader to point out the possession of novichok not to mention its use is a clear violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

He survived but you don't know what damage was done internally that is invisible in a photograph.

And everybody sane still wating for any actual evidence of even presence of Novichok. Show medical records, results of tests etc. Britons are still unable to produce anything on the Skripal case.

He is enjoying a coffee and a company of his wife, I presume. Gee, these are sure signs of a huge damage to his internal organs! Seriously, do you have any idea how real poisons work?
