The UK Novichok Hoax

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

One day, everyone will know Russia had nothing to do with the Skripal incident – what only individuals following reliable alternative news and information sources understand now.

Sergey Skripal, his daughter Yulia, and police detective Nick Bailey were reported poisoned on March 4 – father and daughter still reported hospitalized in critical condition.

So was Bailey from the same substance, alleged to be seriously ill. Yet on March 22, he was released, apparently no longer affected by whatever harmed him.

Clearly, he and the Skripals weren’t harmed by a military-grade nerve agent, as falsely reported. Exposure causes death in minutes.

No other Brits reported affected by the same substance perished, their illness not caused by a nerve agent or they’d be dead.

The Skripals have been hospitalized for nearly three weeks, reportedly in a coma in critical but stable condition.

Judge David Williams ruled it lawful for doctors “to take blood samples for provision to the OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) and to provide copies of medical notes to” the organization.

Porton Down is Britain’s Defense Ministry science and technology lab, a secret facility. On Thursday, its forensic analysis of blood samples taken from father and daughter Skripal “indicated exposure to a nerve agent or related compound. The samples tested positive for the presence of a Novichok-class nerve agent or closely related agent,” it claimed.

Former UK ambassador Craig Murray explained Porton Down’s analysis failed to confirm the alleged agent is Novichok, nor any evidence of Russian responsibility for what happened.

Murray: “Evidence submitted by the British government in court (Thursday) proves, beyond any doubt, that Boris Johnson has been point blank lying about the degree of certainty Porton Down scientists have about the Skripals being poisoned with a Russian ‘novichok’ agent.”

“I knew and had published from my own whistleblowers that this is a lie. Until now I could not prove it. But today I can absolutely prove it, due to the judgement at the High Court case which gave permission for new blood samples to be taken from the Skripals for use by the OPCW.”

“Justice Williams included in his judgement a summary of the evidence which tells us, directly for the first time, what Porton Down…actually said.”

It’s “utterly incompatible with what Boris Johnson has been saying” – clear evidence he lied. Virtually everything he said about the incident was untrue. Nothing he and other Tory officials say is credible.

Note: Murray said “a massive DOS (denial of service) attack” targeted his website, ongoing for over 24 hours. His defenses are holding.

Clearly dark forces want his important information suppressed – why it’s vital to spread the word about what he explained.

Follow his website: for up-to-date information on the Skripal incident.

Tell others about what you read. Help get out the truth UK officials want suppressed.

On Friday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov explained Moscow never had a so-called “Novichok” nerve agent.

Claims otherwise are false. Nothing by this name is listed or declared under the Chemical Weapons Convention, he said.

It “did not exist and does not exist” in Russia. If a so-called A-234 Novichok agent harmed the Skripals, Britain is its likely origin, made at Porton Down.
