They came from Russia, had a thirst for knowledge,
Liked their spires, were passing Wiltshire College
That’s where I
Caught their eye
All their texts back home were encoded,
Said they knew the way from the station…blindfolded
I said fine
And in 30 seconds time they said

WE WANT TO SEE A COMMON STEEPLE
WE’LL FLY TO SEE WHAT EVER COMMON STEEPLES DO
BUT IF THERE’S SLUSH NEAR THAT COMMON STEEPLE
I’LL TURN BACK FROM THAT COMMON STEEPLE
LIKE YOU DO

To the tune of:

Agreed. I am only surprised that we have not had the usual pro Russia mob on here. Perhaps the Russian story is too much of a stretch even for them?

I see that the RT journalist put the phone down on Kirsty Wark on Newsnight last night:

BBC Newsnight


Yes, it would be funny were it not such a serious matter.

A recreation of the suspects walk through Salisbury:

BBC News

They walked straight out of town from the Station, along Wilton Road ignoring the tourist sights and the only place they were going was to Skripal's house.

Yes, you are quite right - my bad. Now you come to mention it, it is always rammed with visitors from all around the world.

Why, I often see a gaggle of tourists come out of the Cathedral crowding round their tour guide shouting "Yes! Yes! That was OK, but when are we going to the Shell Garage on Wilton Road?"

Pretty much a daily occurrence.

Russian spies arrested ‘on way to break in to Swiss lab testing novichok’




Two Russian spies were arrested in March on their way to break in to the Swiss chemical weapons laboratory that was analysing the nerve agent used in the Salisbury attack, it has been revealed. The Russian GRU military intelligence agents were intercepted in the Netherlands while on their way to Switzerland, where investigators believe they were targeting the Spiez laboratory. They were expelled from the country. The arrests followed a joint operation by the British and Dutch secret services working with the Swiss intelligence, the Nachrichtendienst des Bundes (NDB). They were equipped with hacking equipment which would have been able to break into the computer network of the laboratory, the country’s institute working on protection against nuclear, biological and chemical threats.



Looks like we can add Swiss laboratories to the GRU guide book.

No, they were just tourists who wanted to buy some Cuckoo Clocks.

Some interesting research on the two suspects passports.


Skripal Poisoning Suspect’s Passport Data Shows Link to Security Services

An ongoing Bellingcat investigation conducted jointly with The Insider Russia has confirmed through uncovered passport data that the two Russian nationals identified by UK authorities as prime suspects in the Novichok poisonings on British soil are linked to Russian security services. This finding directly contradicts claims by the Russian president on 12 September 2018, and by the two men in an interview broadcast on RT one day later, that they are civilians who traveled to Salisbury for a tourist getaway.

Just in and was about to post the same thing. Wonder what the Russophile members will respond with.

Boshirov's leaked internal passport file has the same peculiar details as Petrov's and the same Russian Defence Ministry contact phone number.

Some say that on a clear day the Cathedral can be seen from 60 miles away. Perhaps they were seeing if that was true by walking as far away from it as possible.

The interesting thing in all of this, is how obvious it is that the Russian authorities don't give a crap. The interview was a joke, rehearsed and unconvincing to all except the gullible. One wonders whether this ineptitude from the Russians is purposeful - a kind of "...we know you know we did it, but what can you do"?

That is it exactly. It is part of their larger program of undermining the very concept of "international law."

More drama here last night. Two diners in Prezzo's were apparently taken ill and the area was cordoned off with HAZMAT suits turning up. Now confirmed was not Novichock and major incident status is now stood down.

Seems someone posted on social media that it was two Russians taken ill but seems that may have been a wind up. Police had previously issued a warning to drug users about Fentamyl. That was how the Skripal thing started being reported initially!

Prezzos still closed but the Police outside told me hopefully not for long.

yeah I saw that on Sky news.

Was kind of funny because at one point it was plastered all over their front page but I couldn't find it on BBC or other news outlets for a while.

I must say, its interesting the police response to this, wonder if this is whats going to happen now any time someone gets a case of the skitters after some bad prawns.

BTW,

Can I just say its been a pretty good thread this so far and that been down to you in large part, this is a really interesting topic and its been a fun discussion about the Skripal case.

I remember way back when it was Litvenenko I spent a long time looking into that case, its also very interesting and I am sure you have looked into it but I think it makes for a even more fascinating story.

Thanks. At least the pro-Russia bots seem to have gone away.

Litvinenko, yes, fascinating indeed.

The police have ruled out any link between this incident and the Skripal affair.

www.bbc.co.uk...

It seems they were just being overly cautious due to recent events, can't say I blame them.
