A Very British Farce

Mark J. Doran wrote this very British farce. (Publish here with his permission.)

SERGEI: I'm not dead!
CUSTOMER: Nothing - here's your ninepence.
SERGEI: I'm not dead!
MORTICIAN: Here - he says he's not dead!
CUSTOMER: Yes, he is. The 'Times' said so. March 12th. Front page. Trust me: he's dead.
SERGEI: I'm not!
MORTICIAN: He isn't.
CUSTOMER: Well, he will be soon. It was a Novichok nerve agent. There's no treatment, and no recovery is possible.
SERGEI: It was just the prawns, that's all! I'm getting better!
CUSTOMER: No, you are not. It was 'military grade', 8 times stronger than VX. You were dead in seconds.
MORTICIAN: Oh, I can't take him like that - it's against regulations.
SERGEI: How's my daughter? And what about my pets?
CUSTOMER: Oh, don't be such a baby.
MORTICIAN: I can't take him ...
SERGEI: I feel fine! I want to go back to Russia!
CUSTOMER: Oh, do us a favor ...
CUSTOMER: Well, can you hang around a couple of minutes? He won't be long. We've someone coming over ...
MORTICIAN: I think I'll write a letter to the 'Times'.
CUSTOMER: No you bloody won't. Look at the trouble the last one caused.

b adds:

Yes, the scene is somewhat familiar.



Thank god that the 'morticians' at the Salisbury District Hospital were less bribable than Monty Python's medieval undertaker.

Grieved 36. Guessing. Yulia’s phone is ‘temporary’ as she said/implied, a cheapo pre-pay. She would never have been able to make that call if on lock-down. (Assuming it was her on the phone.)

I read that Victoria, V, was recording half / some of her phone calls, normal under the circumstances. (Russians might be monitoring that no, see Peter.) Interesting: it was after that phone call (‘Papa is resting’) that it was announced that Sergei was ‘recovering’.

Yulia does not explain the situation - refers to it, and V understands - as related to the world MSM story. V will not obtain a visa, says Yulia, turns out correct. Besides that, Yulia is generally reassuring, no long-term bad effects, etc. Actually quite an optimistic call, not in any sense a call for help, in fact very much in control of the situation. The somewhat stiff, scripted feel is due to the fact that both parties know or suspect they are recorded.

Imho, the Skirpals were poisoned by ?? and were/are in the hospital…and that now they are recovered/ing will be discharged / let go. The whole story will be laid to rest and quickly buried with some tale -> poor analysis, strange personal attack by an old enemy (who is being now sought for, 1, a real nasty…), Novichoks = a deadly mystery, etc. etc.

1. Disturbing aspect of this story is that there has been NO hunt for any proximal direct agent: the person(s) who planted, introduced, placed, sprayed or directly wiped the faces (or other action-s) the poison that affected the Skirpals.

No shady figures breaking .. entering in their home, the kitchen of the restaurant, the park, their car; or possible culprits ‘known to them but dodgy’ friend(s) Pavel, Boris, Vera.. A proximal causal link hasn’t even been hinted at, hypothesized, or discussed. It is as if the ‘poison’ came from straight from the heavens, or the hellish underground, care of a mythical creature. Which seems to speak to its non-existence, as does the varied locales where it was ‘detected’, looking for ontological ‘proof.’ Everywhere but nowhere, a kind of scary miasma. (See Lochearn 48 and others above.)

Actually quite a good British rant, imho.

@102 imo

Jonathan Pies rants are imho excellent and certainly and good at exposing the insanity of what is going on, here is his recent one on Count Dankula being convicted for telling a joke-

Following the deeply hidden clues inside the secret Russian chemical weapons assasination manual, the MI6 and CIA find barrels of Iraqi WMDs and Russian Novichoks buried at the bottom of the Gulf of Tonkin. It has also been discovered that Russian ships have been regularly digging the barrels out and delivering them to Bashar al-Assad to gas his own people, all to finally fulfil his lifelong perverse desire to get US and NATO involved directly in Syrian war instead of through their terrorist proxies. Why should Assad keep killing the Syrians when he can outsource the job to US, NATO and Israel?

John Bolton is scheduled to take over the NSA directorship as of tomorrow, April 9. (May any extant gods help us!)

Tillerson officially ended Secty of State job on March 31 -- with Pompeo (if there is a god, may she/he help us all!) has confirmation hearing scheduled for this coming Thursday, April 12.

Pompeo still has his official status a CIA chief, while at State who knows who's in charge? It's not very diplomatic to use the Red Queen approach of sentence first, trial after. I wonder if there will be questions to Pompeo about CIA role in the most recent CW allegation?

What a mess -- and getting the false flag chem attack into the MCM (Mainstream Corporate Media) for official propaganda distribution this weekend, leaves Bolton free to say he had nothing to with it. With Bolton involved in any way, that way leads to violence.

That alone can be explained by the professionalism of the assassin. Authorities have no clue who had done it. That raises two puzzles, however. One is that the method was unreliable, and a perfectly planned assassination is expected to, well, assassinate. The second puzzle is the alleged "4 hour delay feature" that the poison (or it delivery method) had. An assassin that can remain undetected does not need it! And the reliability of the hit suffered.

There are much fewer puzzles if we assume a black flag scenario. "Deficient lethality" would not worry the black flaggers, a person near the bench who would spray Yulia and Sergei would be undetected because investigators would carefully exclude him/her from suspicions, the handles of the doors of the car and house could be smeared later (if at all! they only need some record of sample tests). The "delay" feature helped to eliminate suspicions about people who were near Skripals in Salisbury business district. The cruel treatment of pets could help intimidating Skripals to silence -- "we mean business".
