This new Cold War is thrilling, isn’t it ? The spy-games, the poisonings of Russian double agents on British soil, the suspicion, the intrigue, the complete suspension of the rule of law, or any obligation toward critical thinking….

”Corbyn’s request for further details on the evidence united the British Parliament… against him. From the jeering Tories opposite, to his own angry backbenchers, there was uncontained anger at his request to clarify exactly what is currently known about events in Salisbury. If the consensus is such that the leader of the opposition’s attempt to propose some kind of opposing viewpoint is shouted down, shouldn’t that cause at least some pause for thought? The British Parliament has seen this kind of consensus before. The voices of dissent were drowned out. It didn’t end well. And the evidence was wrong.”

”It is very carefully worded propaganda. Of a type developed by liars.….”
The prepubescent Gavin Williamson, speaking in his official capacity as ”Defence Secretary” (sic) told Russia to “Go away and shut up.” Putin must surely be terrified by this boy’s steely determination, diplomatic expertise and dazzling repartee.
