Didn't see it above mentioned above so latest updates from Spire Fm (local radio)

The girl was his daughter, they have also closed a nearby restaurant (where they had eaten) and also a pub (not heard if they went for a drink in there but am assuming so) also they have now handed over responsibility to the Counter Terrorism team.

Doing about what? Not much anyone can do until some evidence emerges, like the toxicology reports.

It's all just speculation at the moment.

You wanted to know what May and her Cabinet were doing about "it" (and we do not know yet what "it" might be) so seeing as how BJ is both in her cabinet and is Foreign Secretary and has stated the Govt's position to the House what more could you reasonably expect at this stage?

Unless you just hate the Tories, of course, in which case please troll elsewhere.

It would be interesting to know what Corbyn would do about it.

They are saying it is not terror related but they are using the CT team's specialists.

Yes, that was in response to a post from your fellow Corbynista, wasn't it?

Do you actually have anything of any value to add to this thread?

Well they do have radioactive umbrella guns and the fabled heart attack gun,that's just what we know.

I was reading about the heart attack gun but I can't recall where might have been mysterious universe. From
What I recall it would spray two substance that would hit the person in the face, they would mix and turn to gas,lethal gas that was very very hard to detect.

I tried finding the post I read on it complete with pictures of the duel barrel basic looking aerosol gun but all my searches today came up dry...kinda weird...

a reply to: gortex


The heart-attack gun was supposed to be a microwave beam that would disrupt the electrical signals of the heart. It was discovered back in the 1970's in Sweden, when large numbers of forest workers were having sudden heart attacks. After investigation it was found that the emissions of a large radar station were being focused into the mountain valleys.

Also he was an 'exchange' spy....exchanged for who?


He was part of the exchange for the Russian spy ring members arrested in the US during 2010.

Details of the spy ring members at following link.

If there are any links found that go back to Russia and Vlad the Impal...I'm mean Vladimir Putin, then we should hit him were it hurts, his secret wallet. Start by seizing the houses in London owned by his oligarch friends, and ban them from entering the UK.

Thats the spirit!

Seriously...the Livenienko deal was ridiculous. You can claim "restraint" in that case. But a second case....its a slap in the face to the average Brit i'd think.

I totally agree with you, when Litvinenko died the goverments reaction was a joke, there is a number of strange deaths of Russians here in the UK that needs a tougher response too. If this is the FSB then what on earth is MI6 doing!! How are they able to operate with inpunity here in the UK. Putin seems to think he can do what ever he wants, and the UK, and MI5/6 let him get away with it.

Fentanyl and Carfentanyl]

Initial reports in British media said authorities suspected Skripal and his daughter were exposed to fentanyl, a synthetic opiate painkiller that is at least 50 times more powerful than morphine. A related synthetic opioid, carfentanyl, is 100 times as potent as fentanyl and as much as 10,000 times as potent as morphine. In addition to medical uses, and abuse as street drugs that often has deadly consequences, the chemicals have been weaponized as potentially lethal incapacitating agents. Weaponized forms include guns that shoot felt pads soaked in the substances, paint-ball type projectiles, and an aerosol spray. The chemicals can be ingested through skin contact or inhaled if they become airborne. The U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that "first responder" emergency workers in cases of fentanyl and carfentanyl exposure can ingest the chemicals by touching the victim's skin. Two police officers who initially responded to Skripal's case were treated and one remained hospitalized on March 6.

Yeah well done, that’s what the early reports mention but the link you show highlights how potent this is and how it could be weaponised

Fentanyl and Carfentanyl. Was that not the stuff they pumped into the opera building through the heating vents killing loads of hostages as well as the chechen rebels. ?

Pretty sure carfentanyl was the synthetic opoid used to knock people out in the miscow theatre hostage raid - was an opoid one up from fent at least - released into the air vents to knock out terrorists/hotaages prior to raid but caused many to die from OD. Though AFAIK it'd be easilly detectable.

That said I think the Russian involvement claims are too soon - while it fits in with recent ongoings, May's recent speech saying 'we know what you're doing and will not succeed, Putin's iron fist 'democratic election' policy and prior attempts (parcel story sounds very intriguing, as well as family deaths) - time will tell and the police/health guidelines for no wider public concern or contamination seem worthy of investigation (could be something, could be nothing).

Not that we can do anything either way - Russia can just cut off gas and as it's bought out all nearly all our critical hospital, defense, oil/gas, energy needs for the last 15 years can cripple the country in three days if it wanted too.

Still fingers crossed all recovery and through investigation yeilds results.

Beat me to to it while posting mine - yeah 99% sure - there was a ch4/UK/dispatches type documentary exploring the chemical a few years back saying higher analogues but way before fent and carfent became publo9ic knowledge (likely culprits due to potency). Will dig it out.

Yeah good catch lads, it was used by the Russians in that botched rescue attempt


BBC radio 4 interviewed a few Russians today and to be honest I wish the interviewers would have just told the Russians to fk off after they claimed British media was demonising Russia and that chap might have just had a heart attack

heart attacks in Russia are so fatal even the daughter will feel the side effects and local police men and ambulance staff

Yeah. Tbh, British sanctions would mean nothing to Russia. The US are sanctioning them right now and they're hardly crippled. So, what were we supposed to do? Give me a serious answer this time...
