Novichok again!

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Thursday, 27 Sep 2018, 22:46

As the Novichok row still rumbles on, a question comes to mind.  Now, the poison was apparently in a perfume bottle and was sprayed on the Skripals door.  If this substance is so lethal, how come the alleged poisoners didn't poison themselves with it.  Was it a windy day?  Try controlling a spray outside even with a light breeze, some of it is bound to get on you somewhere, even a little on the finger pushing down the button.  Something to think about!

And another thing, when Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned, there were pictures of him lying in a hospital bed all over the news but to date, we haven't seen one photograph of either of the Skripals.

Novichok again?

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Thursday, 27 Sep 2018, 22:40

Just reading about the death of Dawn Sturgess and the exposure to Novichok.  Thinking about it logically, and after doing a little research, I think someone in Porton Down or the DCBRNC has been involved in a little Breaking Bad! 

Now, I know Porton Down is close to Salisbury and is the site of the UK Ministry of Defence’s, Defence Science & Technology Laboratory and known for their secretive work on chemical and biological weapons.  But what I didn't know but found out is that the Defence, Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear Centre (or DCBRNC for short) is even closer at Winterbourne Gunner in Wiltshire. It is a tri-service site, with the RAF being the lead service and is responsible for all training issues relating to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defence and warfare for the UK’s armed forces.

As, Baby Herman says, 'it stinks like yesterdays diapers!
