Re: ‘The Holes in the Official Skripal Story’,

BTW - the linked article reads very much like one of the ubiquitous CT takedowns of the 911 'official record' ie no substance just sniping which is the easy bit. As I said I look forward to his 'more plausible explanations' ( ct'ers rarely do that as it allows us sensible people to do what they do -...

Re: ‘The Holes in the Official Skripal Story’,

Who knows? It may or may not become clear.

I agree that your explanation is a plausible.

One point - Craig Murray has a 'mixed past' - he was dismissed from the FCO under a bit of a cloud - could be dodgy.

I await his next post with interest...

Re: Brexit consequences

I would hope that May will appoint a successor to Davis today, and maintain the timetable. His position was little more than symbolic anyway - I mean, he didn't seem to do much. I get the impression that he didn't do much so in the end she simply had to say what was going to happen. . Either that o...

What next indeed?

We have no idea where this is going and no idea what to do about it.

Re: On Johnson.

Apparently he called the outcome from the Chequers discussion (actually May telling them the way it's going to be) 'polishing a turd'.

Remarkable honesty from him - calling Brexit a turd. I agree with him.

Re: Isn't the news bad enough?

Even more devastating food news. "CO2 shortage halts crumpet production." You may have trouble finding crumpets in supermarkets as Warburton's suffers the effects of a carbon dioxide shortage. One of the UK's biggest bread makers says it has ended production at two out of four of its plants because...

Re: The psychology of belief.

Wish I still read books - I was give Sagan's Demon-Haunted World for Christmas - got abut 10 pages in and then gave up for no good reason. My attention span is shortening with age - I don't watch films either.

Ha ha very droll. I have to say that I have some sympathy with his stated reason (and I assume it's the real reason) for blocking that bill. It is too easy to make bad law and invoke the law of unintended consequences if it's not done 'properly'. I don't know what the wording of this so-called 'upsk...
