"Quockerwodger."

This from Susie Dent.

That looked like fun. Very good of the non-participants to stand aside so neatly.

‘The Holes in the Official Skripal Story’,

I stumbled across this very interesting item. It's worth a read, imo, though I have no idea about its accuracy. I am, with a few simple questions, demolishing what is the most ludicrous conspiracy theory I have ever heard – the Salisbury conspiracy theory being put forward by the British government ...
