    However, it's bit weird because this thread: https://forums.contractoruk.com/gene...right-law.html kind of disapproves of the EU not being democratic. I mean even UKIP are pointing out democracy in action...

    I'm afraid I have to agree with most of this:
    I rather agreed with that when I read it too. Fake news, maybe fake incidents too, by people with a political agenda.

    On latest news, they may have been in contact by smoking fag ends they picked up? Yech! Apart from pennyless down and outs, who does that?

    Sounds like speculation and scaremongering in equal parts.

    Wouldn't surprise me if the Russians are right, either, given what we know about this (washes away, burns away in the sun, etc.)
    It persisted down a fair bit for a while after the initial incident and it has been glorious weather for the last six weeks so would have burnt off in the sun.

    Given how much sooner she fell ill than him, and that they're a couple, is it perhaps possible that she came into contact with it and then contaminated him?

    Apparently those so sorely afflicted are known to collect part smoked cigarettes, as you do apparently.

    Maybe one of the fags was Russian.

    In other news:

    Some groups that have opposed the regime for years are complying. Others insist they will fight on. It is hard to see how the battle can be sustained for more than a short time against the firepower of the Syrian army and the Russians.

    Behind the fighting is a bigger reality. The Assad regime believes it has almost finished off its enemies. It cannot do much about the big powers who have troops in parts of Syria, particularly Turkey, the United States and their allies.

    But the armed groups who claim descent from the first demonstrators in Deraa in March 2011 are fighting their last battles.

    Syria's bloodshed, Syria's wars, its smashed cities, continue to break lives. But the Assad regime's fight for survival is almost done.

    I heard they were drug users and may have picked up a syringe somewhere.

    A false accusation based on an initial guess by Wiltshire's finest apparently.

    So, Novichok is deadly yet hasn't killed anyone yet (that we know of), should kill in seconds but takes 5 hours to show symptoms, can survive 4 months in the wilderness but can't survive a baby wipe, lives next door to Porton Down but comes from Russia. Jimmy Hill chin rub....

    This forum appears to be overrun by Putinbots, useful idiots and conspiracy theorists.

    Whatever the explanation, it's a murder inquiry now...
