The UK is to build a new chemical weapons "defence centre" to protect itself from what it says is the growing threat from Russia and North Korea.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson will announce the £48m facility will be located at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory in Porton Down.

Scientists at the Wiltshire lab helped identify the nerve agent used to attack ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

www.bbc.co.uk...



. . . the site which has been linked to many infamous incidents relating to biochemical warfare experiments, also conducted off-site and including spraying public places - Salisbury and Weymouth, for example

www.dark-places.org.uk...

An establishment known for secretly exposing the British public to chemical warfare agents is benefiting financially from the recent poisoning in Salisbury.

I may agree we need more research for defensive purposes, but it seems very odd to use such a flimsy story to justify it.

As a resident of Salisbury I can tell you the services brought in over this Salisbury chemical incident are woefully inadequate to deal with this small incident let alone a larger attack

Porton down is a research centre, and obviously is not up to scratch to deal with this situation

We should close it down. There is no need to have one of the biggest stock piles of chemical weapons in the world.

I work in Salisbury and can confirm that this is absolutely true.

So, they get 48 million for identifying a nerve agent that has been around since before the '90's!
You'd have thought the Russians would have used something more 'current' and not known about to make Porton Down earn their money......just saying

That would be great if only if Russia, NK etc all did the same.

Unfortunately, it seems that not only did Russia illegally manufacture Novichok they have now used it on foreign soil, mine, to be exact.

If you want to think it was Russia thats great. Enjoy the msm narrartive. I will give you an alliterative narraritive lnot based on fake. MI6 are cleaning house. You dont have to look as far as Russia.

Allegedly


Do you actually think the Tories care about the welfare of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter, or the fact this was allegedly used on UK soil. Or do you not think it more feasible with the way they've acted that there were already hidden agendas here?

Please someone explain why Russia would use a nerve agent instead of causing an accident? Seems odd Russians would use something that could be traced to them instead of just killing him during a mugging. Or even a hit and run with a car why do something that is difficult to deny?

Yea, you have to give some credit to the Russians... they are not all that stupid. It doesn’t add up for sure.

To me this whole circumstance seems suspicious, amazing that more funding for chemical warfare research has been approved, surely if this event hadn't happened there would have been outrage but now, because of this people will not batter an eyelid.

Why would Russia use a nerve agent they know could be traced back to them?

Seems like a stupid idea to me.

Now I know Putin is bold but I hardly think he wants to kick things off, especially with the way the UK, EU and the US have been hammering him in the media and increasing the rhetoric.

I honestly believe they are currently trying to sway public opinion to make conflict with Russia in the public interest.

This just seems so off to me that I wouldn't put it past MI6 especially when they've got previous.

The Skripal connection to Steele makes me raise an eyelid also.

If Skripal was responsible for Intel given to Steele about Russia, and if any of it is accurate, do you not think that Russia would want to stay away from him incase it bought the intel into public light?!

I think that most people in the UK are a bit concerned about nerve agents being used on our own soil and it was not just those two who were affected, there were others including a Police Officer who is still in hospital.

I am pretty sure that the Tories are a bit concerned about this too.

I am, it took place just round the corner from my workplace.

What about the Litvinenko case? They murdered the guy by poisoning him with Polonium, for God's sake!

Why would they do this? Seeing as loads of posters here are saying it can't be Russia because it would be too obvious that might tend to answer your question.

You obviously trust the non-transparent government more than I, and I reiterate that it was allegedly carried out by the Russians.

They are being as transparent as they can be given that this is an ongoing Police investigation.

Or it's the Russian mafia reminding people they can't escape their debts. Nikolai Glushkov owed £87 million to Aeroflot. He was found dead due to strangulation. Other associates have also been bumped off.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

This is a thread you posted in , during the end of 2014.

You say this


I think your only looking at half the picture truthfully. Russia or more specifically Putin is going so far as to pay bloggers to disseminate stories and attack western media. Sadly with the amount of distrust most have for western governments this tactic truly resonates with alot of people. They dont check facts because they choose to believe it because it fits their narrative depending on if they choose evil bankers new world order or even corporations. Bottom line is i think that western governments instead of ignoring the propaganda like in days past now need to directly confront it with facts. if they dont i see massive trouble in the long term as Putin slowly rewrites history “

I responded to your comment recently, and agree with your words there

I’m a little puzzled as to why you don’t think Russia used chemicals on my home city now?

You are using the narrative the St Petersburg Russian online army projects on to social media sites
