Nothing to do with Porton Down. Hopefully.

    Did the existing tail end of this thread get chopped off? I seem to remember that there were pages of posts after 22.3.18 and before today. Odd.

    Not sure, would that maybe have been the 'Are we being lied to about Salisbury' thread?

    Oh yeah...

    the Skripals and that investigation in their poisoning.

    Gone a bit quiet.

    I heard one of the Windsors was down that way the other week. To reassure the locals, you know.

    They have voted to do so.

    The world's foremost chemical weapons watchdog has granted itself new powers to assign blame for attacks, despite protests by Russia.

    Until now, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) could only say whether chemical weapons were used - but not who had used them.

    Britain successfully argued that new powers were needed to deal with repeated chemical attacks in Syria.

    Russia said the move went "beyond the mandate" of the watchdog.

    It also said the organisation was facing an "artificially created crisis".

    The members of the OPCW, however, voted in large numbers for the measure, winning the vote by 82 to 24 - exceeding the two-thirds majority needed.

    Well, this is looking less like the Russians. Who believes that Russian spies are skulking around Wiltshire spraying poisons through letterboxes, raise your hands. I have a timeshare to sell you at the Earth's core.

    Newsnight is wonderful tonight

    People interviewed as experts who are clearly nothing of the sort.

    Just making stuff up
