First hour News Review – Retired BBC West of England Home Affairs Correspondent Steve Brodie takes us inside the gas chamber at Porton Down, near Salisbury in Wiltshire. The UK Chemical weapons research facility that, by international treaty, shouldn’t exist.

Black Lives Matter row: racism in old TV dramas; Skippy the slave’s grave in Bristol vandalised by far right; hardening of the sides and strategy of tension; Mayor Marvin sent racist letters; electioneering in US. ‘The Salisbury Poisonings’ drama on TV – propaganda. Anthrax in US.

James Boswell – Whitney Webb’s Dark Winter’s tale of smallpox, Amerithrax and Covid-19 – Is the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 a naturally occurring variant or was it deliberately engineered? The question is straightforward and finally there can only be one answer. However, governments in the West and the media seem determined to have it both ways. On the one hand they have repeatedly denounced reports that Covid-19 may be a bioweapon as “fake news”, discrediting sources as “conspiracy theorists”, while on the other hand, they are slowly planting the idea that the virus may indeed have escaped from a top level biosafety (BSL-4) lab in Wuhan. As far back as April 7th, Sky News Australia was already muddying the waters with a news story entitled “Evidence mounts COVID-19 came from a lab in Wuhan”. The evidence it presents is scant to say the least and the supposed “revelation” that “bat was never a food source in Wuhan” was not a revelation at all, but an established fact. Host of the show, Andrew Bolt, leaps from here, however, to the conclusion that “‘a nearby laboratory just 300 metres from the market’ was more likely responsible for the outbreak.” While “another nearby lab, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, bragged about discovering and identifying ‘a large number of new bat and rodent viruses’”…

– Covid 19 a biological weapon? Beijing believes COVID-19 is a biological weapon. Chinese spokesman’s speech removes hypothesis of biological war from the list of “conspiracy theories”. From conspiracy theory to geopolitical realism, the possibility to treat COVID-19 as a biological weapon has been finally accepted in the public sphere. The recent statement by the Chinese spokesman Zhao Lijian, formally accusing the US of bringing coronavirus to China, has highlighted a series of new opinions about the pandemic. The hypothesis of biological warfare behind the global pandemic had already been raised by Russian experts some weeks ago. Like any opinion that is slightly different from the official version of Western governments and their media agencies, the thesis was ridiculed and accused of being a “conspiracy theory”. However, as soon as the official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the second largest economic power on the planet publishes a note attesting to this possibility, it leaves the sphere of “conspiracy theories” to enter the scene of public opinion and official government versions….

Review of this week’s appalling BBC propaganda drama ‘ The Salisbury Poisonings’ and a look at what an intelligence insider has to say about the credibility of the official story – it’s only for the stupid people! – Skripal case: Israeli expert on the work of the special agents – If you need someone to eliminate, then this is a very serious operation, which is being prepared for a long time. A very significant material and human resource is allocated. We are talking about dozens of employees. On the territory of this state, an “advanced command post” is being created. In the operation, a technical support group, a logistic group, a cover group, an external surveillance group and a group of performers are involved. The performers themselves appear at the very last moment. They do not go anywhere, lighting up on cameras, do not use public transport, but move on rented cars, which they do not rent themselves. And the more they will not stop in hotels, but will live on safe houses provided by the logistics group. Such groups do not come under the passport of their country, do not go to the embassy for obtaining a visa, leaving fingerprints. This is complete nonsense. Professionals do not work that way. If the GRU acted, both the killers and the other participants in the operation would come to the UK on the passports of other countries that have visa-free relations with it. Here, two alleged GRU officers go to the embassy, ​​leave their fingerprints there, get a visa, stop at the hotel, pass under all the cells. This you will not find even in ladies’ detective novels….

Another Perspective on the supposed ‘nerve agent’ poisoning of Sergei and Julia Skripal on 4th March 2018 in Salisbury by the Saker — The Alternative Skripal Narrative by Michael Antony for The Saker Blog – …The thing that proves this was a British crime not a Russian one is the fact that Yulia was a prime target. The Russians had no motive to eliminate her, but if they had, they could have done it in Russia with a simple road accident with no questions asked. Only the British had to do it in Britain, since they didn’t have the resources in place to do it in Russia. And if she was not a prime target but collateral damage, why was Sergei not attacked when he was alone? Why wait for her to visit him? The fact they were both targeted the day after she arrived in Britain puts MI6’s signature all over it. She was a danger to MI6 because she knew of Sergei’s plan to return to Russia and trash the Steele Dossier, and she had to be stopped from revealing this to the world when he was killed. Silencing her at the same time was just as important to MI6 as silencing him…

Were the 2018 Salisbury poisonings’ part of MI6/CIA Operation Beluga? BOMBSHELL: French Counter-Terror Boss: ‘I Have Proof Who Killed Litvinenko – It Wasn’t Russia’ He says it was done by US and UK secret services and that he is going to go public with the evidence – A former French official who has had senior roles in internal security and terror fighting has come forward with a remarkable statement: that he has documentary evidence proving that Alexander Litvinenko, the Russian spy who died from polonium poisoning, was killed by US and UK special services. In a lengthy interview which is soon to be published, he goes further, saying that Litvinenko’s murder was a special sevices operation designed to defame Russia and Vladimir Putin, that the notorious Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky was involved, and was himself killed by MI6 when he became a liability. He even says he knows the code name of the operation: “Beluga”. News of this broke on Sunday, March 27 in an article by William Dunkerley titled “Operation Beluga: A US-UK Plot to Discredit Putin and Destabilize the Russian Federation….

Porton Down Government Scientist David Kelly murder in 2003 – books: The Strange Death of David Kelly (2007) by Norman Baker MP – Open Verdict: The Mysterious Death of David Kelly (2018) by Miles Goslett

Final agony of RAF volunteer killed by sarin nerve gas – in Britain – As the inquest into the death of a ‘human guinea pig’ at Porton Down opens, a witness breaks 50 years’ silence to recount the horrors he saw ‘I had never seen anyone die before and what that lad went through was absolutely horrific… it was awful,’ he said. ‘It was like he was being electrocuted, his whole body was convulsing. I have seen somebody suffer an epileptic fit, but you have never seen anything like what happened to that lad… the skin was vibrating and there was all this terrible stuff coming out of his mouth… it looked like frogspawn or tapioca.’ Thornhill recalls a number of scientists standing around Maddison. ‘You could see the panic in their eyes – one guy looked as if he was trying to hold his head down. There were four of us who picked him off the floor and put him in the back of the ambulance. He was still having these violent convulsions and we drove him to the medical unit at Porton.’ By the time he reached the unit, it had been cleared of other casualties and there were men in white coats standing around a bed. Thornhill was told to carry Maddison over and it was then that the young ambulance driver saw a second image that would haunt him for decades. ‘I saw his leg rise up from the bed and I saw his skin begin turning blue. It started from the ankle and started spreading up his leg. It was like watching somebody pouring a blue liquid into a glass, it just began filling up. I was standing by the bed gawping. It was like watching something from outer space and then one of the doctors produced the biggest needle I had ever seen. It was the size of a bicycle pump and went down onto the lad’s body. The sister saw me gawping and told me to get out.’…
