NOVICHOK


Russian Scientist Mirzayanov developed Novichok and then he defected to USA after the Soviet Union collapsed. Therefore it would be exceptional if he didn't carry with his work to the USA; at the same time it would be doubtfully the USA would refuse his work. The assumption could be made that the USA could also have a stockpile of Novichok. 
Novichok is a combination  of 60 ineffective various powders but put together it becomes deadly. More deadly than VX. Experts state that about 20 countries are capable to produce Novichok. Some legal registered by OPCW and some illegal.

OPCW demands a signature on Novichok for the country to be identified. Since Porton Down could not identify the origin of country it is assumed it has been produced by a rogue country. 

To point at Russia, whatever they might be, without proof is wrong. It could just as well be UK or USA; none of them are perfect either.  
He stated that large number of compounds were made. The lesser effective powders were named as organophosphate insecticide and therefore a secret chemical weapon are disguised as legitimate pesticides research.

Uzbekistan was in control of Novichok when the country was notany more part of the Soviet Union.

There could have been a secret sale or a theft which could have been any major country.

During 1999 and 2000 the USA destroyed the chemical weapons test facility. Could they have kept a sample or kept the papers how to produce it? After all the USA is not known for being open, honest and transparent.

Russia is not the only country able to produce Novichok. As a matter of fact, there are almost every country which applied for a licence from Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to produce chemical weapons, including nerve agents.

BBC did not state it could also have come from Uzbekistan.

Uzbekistan was part of the Soviet Union till 1991 and then became independent. Eight years later the BBC and others reported that US experts were helping to destroy its stock of nerve agents, especially Novichok.

Uzbestikan had been a major testing centre for chemical weapons.

BBC must remember their previous report of US decommissioning of Novichok in Uzbekistan and therefore to ignore these facts to back May’s claim that it is Russia totally wrong.

Another sickening fact emerged when the anti-Corbyn MPs used it to proclaim to “stand-shoulder-to-shoulder” with the Tories.

Corbyn is a real statesman and kept his head asking for proof before jumping to conclusion. Now here is a leader and hopefully the truth will unfold.

SKRIPAL CASE INCREDIBLE




The Skripals and so called Novichok poisoning seems to be getting, in my opinion, more and more incredible. Too many contradicting reports.


When Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slammed unconscious on a park bench people rushed there to help, touched them and wiped their froth from their mouth. Ambulance was called and they were put in there and taken to a Salisbury hospital.

Novichok is one of the deadliest and fast acting nerve agents. Yet, none of these people were reported to have been checked or found infected, apart from the policeman but the public must have been there first.

A report from an expert stated that it could only be administrated on their clothing if onto their skin they would have been dead almost immediate. There is no antidote and if they survive will have long term health problems. They never be the same.

Their car and especially their ambulance was only taken away by the military after eight or ten days. None of the crew was reported to be ill who must have been in close contact.

There is a guy mirrored behind them taking photos just before they were found slammed unconscious on the park bench. Was he ever traced and questions – I doubted. There certainly was no mentioning of him in any reports.

The public, today, is mad with taking pictures of any incident with their mobile and I am sure they done so in this case. The public, to be criticised, are so bad with taking pictures that they often forget to help.

The public never seen any of them, even so, it was a highly publicised case but never one other picture apart from one in the pub and two separate ones of Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia were shown.

Both were reported critically ill and unconscious for over a week. At first the daughter woke up and after some days stated that she is getting stronger every day. After another few days she managed to get hold of a phone and supposed to have called her cousin Victoria.

She was telling her that it is nothing to worry about and they all are fine, her father is fine and just resting. Victoria said that she was trying to get a visa to visit them but was refused. In any case, Putin requested a visit since Yulia was a Russian citizen but was refused; the Russian Ambassador from London was refused a visit. In other words, nobody are allowed to see them.

The day after that phone call and statement that her father is fine and just resting; a new announcement was made that Mr Skripal was now conscious and both responding well to the treatment despite there is no antidote to Novichok.

Another baffle is that there were never any other pictures of them both in  hospital. No crowd of journalists outside the hospital. No press conference with doctors. On the contrary, a senior doctor announced there was nobody with nerve agent poisoning found in the hospital.

Now, after rapid improvement of their health the news announcement is that on release from the hospital they both will fly out to the USA and live there with a new identification.

Why all this since May, Johnson and the rest of the Tory Government still swear that it was Novichok and it came from Russia. Soon after May flew to Brussels and convinced the 27 EU countries’ leader. May and EU started an immediate mass expulsion of Russian diplomats despite Porton Down, military top laboratory stated that the sample was Novichok but could not identify the country of origin and they are fed-up of being forced to state it was Russian.

Even today, after all these statements from experts May and Johnson still insist it came from Russia and Putin was behind the attack.

Putin also expelled the same number of the various diplomats and closed-down the British Embassy in Moscow and Petersburg. He also demanded to be given a sample of the evidence which May refused.

Putin sent an application to The Hague, International Criminal Court, to be granted an investigation but was turned down. This is a surprise since The Hague supposed to be neutral. Was there an interference through the backdoor? May seems to be winning all the time to shield her accusation against Russia. Is there a more powerful body behind all of this which is aiming for a war? It was obvious that Cameron already tried hard to achieve it but was unsuccessful.

History shows that Russia never was the aggressor but USA, financing Hitler knowing where it would lead to, UK always does it in a very diplomatic way; quietly in an unobserved way. Queen Mother, Elizabeth, Margaret as children practising Nazi Salute, Duke of Windsor visiting Hitler, Black Shirts were allowed to march and spew Hitler’s views. 

There supposed to be about 20 warlords working constantly in the background. Scheming and planning decades ahead for wars, inflation, mass starvation and disease epidemics. One reason to earn big money from weaponry and the other to reduce the number of people while they sit in a safe haven in the background.

This is the real world we are living in.

LONDON MOST CORRUPT FINANCIAL CITY




It had been stated, several times, that London is the most corrupt financial city. What can be done to clean it up and who starts the ball rolling? It will definite not be the fatcats which have no intention of paying their taxes. It won’t be PM May and her Tory Government although she keeps giving speeches about getting tough with tax avoiders.

Roberto Saviano an anti-mafia journalist said: “London is the heart of global financial corruption. All managed by Rich and Elite Tories and Tax Avoiding Friends which became UK to be known as the most corrupt place on earth.”

Well, that is something to be proud of to achieve that.

Saviano wrote a book exposing Neapolitan, Camorra and Mafia and pays for it by living under armed police guard for over 10 years.

He explained that it is not UK bureaucracy, police or politics, the last I personally would have objection, but what is corrupt is the financial city. 90 per cent of the owners of capital in London have their headquarters offshore.

In his opinion, leaving EU there is a hidden danger which would reduce the joint attempt to fight illegal economies. He pointed out the Qatari society, Mexico cartels, Russian Mafia to gain more power.   

He added that there is proof and evidence that today, the criminal economy is bigger than the legal economy, drug trafficking overshadows the revenue of oil firms. Cocaine brings in £300bn a year. Criminal activities have no rules and like the Mafia are highly organised crimes do not respect the rules of law as most of the financial companies who have offshore residence.

Saviano remembers how he felt writing the book that led to the Camorra to warn him they would kill him.

He said: “In my lifetime 4,000 people have been killed in Naples and surround by the Camorra, but when I was younger I did not have a clear perception of the criminal power that ruled that area.”

His eyes were opened and his mind was changed at a murder of a priest. He was 30 years old and shot in the face because he spoke against the Camorra.

Saviano said: “For the love of my people I will not keep quiet in the face of a dictatorship run by the Mafia.  He called it a totalitarian power within a democracy and wrote an essay denouncing them.”

Saviano’s life changed completely since he wrote his book. There were many books written about the Mafia but what Saviano done wrong was to name names and stating facts exposing people in the Camorra and their actions.

He is now followed by two bullet-proof cars and has five officers to protect him. Sometimes, he feels guilty to bring other people into danger. He lived like that for 10 years.

His advice is not to take freedom of expression for granted and pointing out to brave Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban at 15 years because she campaigned for the right of girls to be educated. According to Saviano Taliban are the world’s biggest heroin traffickers and make a fortune. Yet, they tried to stop a 15 year old who spoke up for women and girls to go to school.

GRENFELL HORROR STILL ALIVE




Although Grenfell came off the headlines and politicians, especially May, trying to ignore it but the experienced horror of the 14 June, 2017, has not gone away. The most effected are the victims and 200 crew from the Paddington firefighters who were the first.


One of the firefighters, Paul Abell, was able to talk about it. They were working non-stop going up and down the smoke-fill stairs. They had to listen to the screams and must have known they could not help everybody. This alone must be with them forever. Firefighters are highly trained to bring people out but a blaze like that it is impossible.

Even after six months, Tom, his colleagues and Grenfell victims are still having nightmares of the worst blaze which killed 71 adults and children.

Paul said that at first, he was numb but then it hit him like a tsunami out of the blue and he started crying. He and his colleagues have their ups and downs and it will never go away.  After all they spent nine hours in the heart of the devastation.

How these men were able to stand it is impossible to imagine. TV showed them coming out and sinking, completely exhausted, to the ground. Paul and eight others trying to lessen the mental trauma by training for the London marathon. They will raise funds for the affected families who most of them are still in temporary accommodations.  

This fact alone adds further to the victims’ trauma but Chelsea/Kensington council, which is one of the richest, does not seem to care. At one time, flats were found within the borough, but the rich neighbours threatened with selling up and it was dropped. It shows the heartlessness of the rich. The issue had been raised by the Labour Party many times in the House of Commons, but PM May gave an answer like “Yes, we are aware of it and look into it ”, obviously nothing happened.

After an investigation it showed the cheaper gladding, which saved merely £5,000, was the main reason for the rapidly rising fire. An inspection found there are 93 high-rising towers with the same dangerous gladding. The Tory government was asked to foot the bill of removing it and install sprinklers which were also missing in Grenfell. Both requests were refused.

The company responsible for the gladding is now bankrupt conveniently so they have not to pay compensation. The tenants of high-rising towers are asked to pay for the removing and new gladding, supposed to be more fire-resistant to be installed. That’s how May and her cronies get out of their responsibility. They forget that it is the people who voted them in and can at the next election, vote them out. They don’t do anything for the benefit of the people, on the contrary, for which they are there for. 

BRITAIN OLDEST NURSE REMEMBERS




Aileen Coomber, 81, was 11 years when the NHS was established. She still has scares on her knees where she fell but her mother could not afford to take her to the doctor. Her younger sister had pneumonia and her mother had to nurse her through it because they didn’t have the money to pay for treatment.

This is not an isolated case but how it was generally and make no mistake it will be like that again. Already it was heralded that a doctor’s appointment could cost £20 or £40 or £60 all depending on the age, time to diagnose and then they will take their time.


Many make the mistake and thinking of safeguarding themselves with private insurance, but they want to make a sky-high profit and charge accordingly. Then it will be the case if you have enough money in the account for the treatment or not which is decisive whether to get the treatment now or having to wait till the money builds up.

Aileen had a 66-year career as a mental health nurse and fears now that Tories’ privatisation putting her beloved NHS in danger and it will the more privatisation is added. It must break Aileen’s heart to see it go and so will be all.

These corporations are not interesting in building a long-term NHS; they are only after profit the bigger the better. A few have already pulled out of their contracts because the big profit was not there. Even Branson was complaining but he is a different kettle of fish. He receives bail-outs like in his railways.

Branson also has the despicable nerve to sue NHS for £2bn because he didn’t get some contracts. To sue the NHS which is in such financial trouble takes a very ruthless, uncaring person. Already people dying at home because ambulances are not available because they are stuck outside hospitals because there is no place in corridors being filled with patience on trolleys because there are no more beds available.

Recently, a 46 year old nurse was having a heart attack and lying on a trolley in the corridor waiting for a doctor. The relative asked whether they could have a doctor urgently because of the seriousness of her medical condition. They were told that there is a queue of 40 urgent cases and they couldn’t possibly asked to jump the queue. As a result, she died before a doctor could attend to her.

Every day the newspapers are writing about such tragedies to high-light the urgency for more funding but to no avail. Nurses are so badly paid that they even have to go to food banks, yet they are so dedicated they are even treat people in the carpark to eliminate the pressure. Some nurses and doctors add unpaid hours to help patients.

Branson certainly shows what character he is to sue NHS which is facing such a critical situation where people dying on trolleys, which has never happened before. May will not bend to Jeremy Corbyn’s demand for more funding. Yet, she does not hesitate to give bankrupt Carillion another £100m which does nothing, but money wasted. It would have been a lifesaver for the NHS.


There are now reports that the NHS is to be sold to the USA. Especially the USA which has been known for decades for their diabolical health care.  Jeremy Hunt, who brought the NHS down to this state and still denies it, was already in NY in talk with Trump. Over 60,000 people demonstrated in London, but will it have an impact on May and the Tories to change their minds? The only real hope people have is on 22 May, 2018 the council election. If Labour wins a greater majority of seats, it would cut May’s power. At the moment, May acts like a dictator and is determined to destroy NHS and the Welfare State at all cost.

Therefore, think about it that the cross you put on your election paper has never been a bigger impact on life and death. It is no exaggeration as you can see people already dying unnecessary and if the Tories win it will the end of NHS as we know it. The same goes for the Welfare State.

MAY IMPROVING ECONOMY ANOTHER LIE



PM May and her Tories keep praising that the economy is improving. The reality shows a different picture.

It had been forecast that 60,000 shops will close and 300,000 staff redundant by the end of 2018 or 2019.


The devastation in British high streets are destroying whole communities. It is hard to tell what is the real reason behind it? The fact remains that if you cut benefits, keep wages low eventually people are forced to stop buying. The result is shop closures, manufacturing slowing down and redundancies which again comes back to less buying. It is a vicious circle with a downward spiral effect.

It isn’t rocket science and everybody can figure it out. So, why is the government not listening to the devastating results and still hell-bend on further cuts?
At first it affected the small shops in the High Street which closed-down when Austerity was introduced in 2012. Now, in the last year the big corporation and supermarket started to lose. Despite of it all, May introduced a £12billion Welfare cut and £16billion council cut.

The effect came before Christmas when it is always a great boom to the economy but last year it was not.

To add to the disastrous situation already, Bank of England increased interest rates to 0.5 per cent which increased lending, mortgage, prices in supermarket and rail fares.

It hit home; consumer stopped spending on Christmas presents.

The result is that ToysRus faced bankruptcy and saved themselves by closing 26 branches.

Moss Bros. issued profits warnings.

Thomas Cook closed 50 travel agency branches.

Debenhams had a drop of 2.6 per cent during Christmas.

Lloyds Bank closed around 800 branches in 2017.

Marks & Spencer non-food sales dropped by 2.8 per cent.

House of Fraser requested store rent cut from their landlords because of low Christmas business.

New Look fell on hard times and is still in trouble.

Big retailers stated that they surviving a worse time for 40 years. They also pointing out that the Government is not listening and adapting a policy which helps retailer.

The fear is real that the High Street as we know it will be soon lost and with that the community.

One backlash on retail and the High Street is the Internet. People are so pressed for time that they buy a lot from the Internet. It is understandable and very convenient but the disadvantage on the environment is an increase of delivery vans, traffic jams and pollution.

It is now up to the Government to find a solution to improve the problems. May can’t keep on putting her head into the sand much longer and never give a solution at PMQ and flapper about anything else but give an answer or quote false statistics.

NUCLEAR TESTS POLLUTION


NUCLEAR TESTING
IN THE PACIFIC


It is not a blog to belittle the effects of plastic pollution in Oceans but at the same time to point out that Nuclear testing on islands and has also had a catastrophic impact on land and sea for decades to come.

In my opinion, it had created the black hole, rather, then the sprays, petrol pollution and others; we were told was a great the cause of the black hole.

Since the 1950s USA and France held a great number of atom bomb tests on islands in the Pacific Ocean and France in the Sahara.

The fall-out and pollution is still effective after decades and will last for centuries.

USA held their testing on the Bikini Island at the beginning of 1960s. The local population was forced to evacuate to America. Officially there were 64 tests held. After decades it was declared safe to return and some did return. They grew crops and were fishing. Soon they complained of health problems which proved it was not safe and the nuclear pollution still existed.

France tested independently developed nuclear weapons first in the Algerian Sahara 1960-66 and then on French Polynesia in the Pacific from 1966 to 1996.

Officially 210 French nuclear testing had been done during 1960-1995.

It is assumed that France has a stockpile of 300 operational nuclear warheads.

Furthermore, Nuclear Waste has been dumped in Oceans constantly, assuring us it is safe. The reality is that nobody knows what the effects are on the casing over decades. All we are aware of is that it takes centuries of nuclear waste to be ineffective, if ever at all. 
NUCLEAR WEAPONS


In view of these devastating effects leaders still develop and building nuclear warheads which most probably, hopefully, they never use.

Another nuclear pollution comes from the tsunami disaster in Japan. They never bother or unable to control the nuclear spillage into the ocean from their damaged nuclear power station. The last we heard it still gets washed into the ocean.

The latest, North Korea constantly testing their nuclear missiles which end up in the ocean. Another leader who couldn’t care about the nuclear polluting effect it has.

We had two nuclear power stations’ disasters, one in Russia and the other in Japan. In Russia, land is polluted and fenced off still after 30 years and will be for further decades if not centuries.

After the two disasters Germany closed down all nuclear power stations and encouraged people to install solar panels. It has now so widely spread that the government was able to force energy suppliers to reduce their tariffs.

It also reduced the nuclear waste.
Britain done their testing in Australia.

But UK, after all the knowledge of disasters and nuclear waste which is hard if not impossible to store for centuries has now signed with China to build a new nuclear power station. It is folly and madness in one.

Why can’t the UK Government encourage the people to install solar panels which would have been less costly than building a new nuclear power station and the nuclear waste. The reason is that shareholders, which includes the Government and their friends, will not get the high dividends it is getting now.
