Skripal Poisoning Incident: Means to Discredit the Growing Popularity of Corbyn?
So many things unfolded in the last seven or so days that ridiculed almost every vitriolic claim Theresa May’s Government directed against Russia, and Putin personally, over the Skripal case, as well as bring us new information.
First let’s deal with this fact; Skripal’s daughter Yulia and her father Sergei have made a full recovery, when it was said they were at death’s door’ itself a huge inconsistency contrary to the UK Government statements these past weeks as well as the last announcement from Porton Down that proves beyond doubt Prime Minister Theresa May and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson blatantly lied; all these and more changes this whole affair.
On the latter point above, to be specific, the Porton Down’s CEO Gary Aitkenhead on Tuesday stated it was of “a type” of Novichok, adding a caveat which was that his scientists cannot determine where the poison came from. This directly contradicts the May Government’s version of the so called facts.
An important point I add is if Porton Down established it was really military grade Novichok’, it would have killed anyone in its vicinity in minutes. A question therefore is why is the CEO of Porton Down being, shall we say, economic with the truth? Is it due to political pressure from No.10 or some other Whitehall Department?
The British Conservative government popularity has tumbled; they therefore now are attacking the man who probably will be the next Prime Minister, Jeremy Corbyn, and probably with a Labour majority.
Polls in UK are being manipulated to state otherwise, that the Conservatives are in the lead, much like what happened in America with Hillary Clinton.
Not wishing to bring levity to this important subject, it is unavoidable not to mention that the police removed one dead cat and two dead hamsters from Skripal’s home who were taken to Porton Down where they were immediately incinerated no information was forthcoming if there were any forensic tests carried out on these animals, specifically if they ingested any type of poison. Why incinerate? Something to hide?
The reasons and speculations, true and not true, will be in newspapers and in the coming week’s real and fake news in the main stream Press and media.
The British Government has been caught in a huge number of lies maybe bigger than any others, we will in future discover, of this Century, not just by demonising and provoking irresponsibly a nuclear power but also because of their unprincipled stance to use this incident for domestic party political politics. Specifically by slandering the leader of the Conservative opposition in the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn accusing him of being a Putin lackey’. An outrageous tactic and attack.
The Conservative Party have tremendously underestimated the degree of sophistication of the British electorate. This is the final straw for the British people.
The Conservative Government’s rush to judgement within hours of the Skripal event will be a major reason why they will loose the next General Election.
Also damning was the way the Government flip flopped in its story last week saying the substance’, whatever it was, was most concentrated on the front door nob of the house. Then saying it might have been in breakfast cereal, both silly conclusions even for us laymen. We can expect more fabricated excuses, lies, as if as they make it up as they go along, day by day.
Though many countries, including America, expelled Russian diplomats, no Ambassadors it should be added, that ruse is also backfiring as most countries are reconsidering the veracity of the British Government’s statements. Importantly Germany has already changed their view.
A person with a great deal of experience in Russia, Sir Tony Brenton, (the UK’s Ambassador in Moscow in the aftermath of the Alexander Litvinenko poisoning), tried to give wise counsel to Mrs. May and the FCO but obviously to no avail.
An interesting aside is also last week voluntarily commenting on the alleged attack by Russia on the Skripal’s, the father of Litvinenko categorically stated that he too questioned the veracity of the British government’s claims about the Skripal poisoning. Even more intriguing is a rumour emanating from a French former security services individual that he has evidence that UK actors murdered Litvinenko. The plot thickens!
Also this past week, a very curious recording, contents wise, of a phone conversation surfaced that took place between Skripal’s daughter and Sergei’s niece in Moscow.
That was followed by an astoundingly stupid decision; the British Embassy in Moscow refused to grant a visa to UK to the niece.
What is the British Government hiding? Are the Skripal’s now prisoners in Britain?
