Why can't the U.K. Let us have better relations with Russia?

Massively underwhelming "support" there. And no wonder given the dubious reaction to Boris Johnson's latest interview with Die Welt in which he has been caught "being economical with the truth."

He states that the scientists at Porton Down have identified the nerve agent used on the Skripals to be "novichok" made in Russia.

Yet in the High Court Judgement yesterday the Porton Down "guy" says, on page 10, Evidence 18:

"Blood samples from Sergei Skripal and Yulia Skripal were analysed and the findings indicated exposure to a nerve agent or related compound. The samples tested positive for the presence of a Novichok class nerve agent or closely related agent."

Nowhere does the Porton Down "guy" say it's a "novichok" made in Russia. The interviewer from Die Welt clearly doesn't believe what he's saying and neither does the German government, by all accounts. Boris is such a poor liar.

Alfie: Nice legwork on that one.

It's Craig Murray's legwork, to be honest.

Doesn't all this remind you of 2001? Novichok instead of anthrax, Boris Johnson instead of Colin Powell and the maniac John Bolton back on the scene. It isn't going to end well.

Russia is the inventor and the only country to manufacture Novichok and did it in a way to hide it.

Do you really think that any powerful enough country won't have tried to replicate such weapon and let Russia as the only power having it ?!

Do other countries have Novichok I would not know such secrets.

My point.

Am not "consipiring" anything, I don't want to take any side, I am just pointing out that "Russia has first invented it" implies "Russia is the author" is wrong.

This is all just a dog and pony show to distract the public from matters like Brexit, lawlessness on the streets of London in the form of moped gangs and violent crime and the hostile takeover of engineering firm GKN.

and the only country to manufacture Novichok

Nonsense. Thy aren't paying you enough at the troll farm.

I think you're doing the British public a disservice. Give them a bit more credit than that.

This is not a false flag/deep state thingy. It's an attack by a foreign power on British soil.

There is no doubt here, to dispute the obvious is cowardly, apologetic appeasement, for a crooked, nefarious liquidator that assassinates or imprisons his critics and worse.

It’s got me’ – lonely death of Soviet scientist poisoned by novichok

Could be sourced from Iran:

I still think the Politicians are jumping the gun a bit without having (or revealing) the solid unequivocal evidence that it was directed by the Russian state.
