Skripal case ─ a whale of a lie ─ codename “Beluga”

The fiction writers who created the attempted murder of the Skripals by an alleged Novichok nerve agent might make a modest living scripting second-rate movies. There is room for fantasy in fiction and we all need entertaining but there is a real world too even if the borders are becoming less and less distinct. Appropriately this whole nonsense was dreamt-up by the same people who gave you 9/11, the CIA and MI6. A colander plot-line, the narrative is so full of holes it could not float in the bath, never mind the unpredictable oceans of world diplomacy. Yet many major countries have gone along with it.

Western leaders, led by a Thatcher clone ─ the most unpopular Theresa May ─ are targeting the gullible in a fantasy tale of Behemoth exaggerations to:

  1. Try to reduce the threat to the super-rich ‘one percent’ poised by a Labour government under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.
  2. Respond to the military superiority of Russia outlined in the second part of Vladimir Putin’s address to the nation.
  3. Scupper the World Cup. (The Boris Johnson picture to this article was posted two days after the alleged attack).
  4. Detract from the Brexit ridicule.

Originally there was another intention. The alleged poisoning happened a week before the Russian election which saw Putin returned with a much increased majority. If the aforementioned aims of these scriptwriters go the same way it will have meant more taxpayers’ money down the drain on a lie. The joint efforts of MI6/CIA in this nonsense gave their unbelievable narrative a codename ─ Beluga.

Codename “Beluga”

Thanks to a former French intelligence agent, Paul Barill, we now know that the codename for this operation is “Beluga”. For those who do not know beluga is a white whale, from the Russian word beliy meaning white. But the lie Beluga tells is not a white lie. It is a whale of a lie.

We further know from Barill that the deaths of Alexander Litvinenko and Boris Berezovsky were not the work of the Russian government any more than the deaths of the Skripals. It is sad but it seems the Skripals will never be heard from again, the simple reason being that dead people tell no tales. (N.B. Since originally writing this it has been announced in MSM that Yulia Skripal is improving rapidly, conscious and stable. I wish her a speedy recovery). If the Skripals could tell tales they would lead eight miles up the road to Porton Down.

Neither do we get any tales from Salisbury District Hospital. Either a police spokesman, like Neil Basu, head of national counter-terrorism or a government spokesperson handles this aspect of ‘news’, which in the real world is unbelievable. So many people panicked after the ‘attack’ it prompted one consultant at the hospital, Stephen Davies, to write the following letter to the Times:

“Sir, Further to your report (“Poison Exposure Leaves Almost 40 Needing Treatment”, Mar 14), may I clarify that no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve-agent poisoning in Salisbury and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning. Several people have attended the emergency department with concerns that they may have been exposed. None had symptoms of poisoning and none has needed treatment. Any blood tests performed have shown no abnormality. No member of the public has been contaminated by the agent involved. STEPHEN DAVIES, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust”

Up to now that is the only communication from Salisbury District Hospital except for non-medical statements from the chief executive, Cara Charles-Barks, predominantly on the release of Serjeant Nick Bailey. I do not discount that some inducement towards this statement may have been made considering the enormous £12.5 million debt owed by the Salisbury NHS Trust which was announced earlier this year.

As well as the revelations from retired French intelligence officer Paul Barill there has been some very serious work from a Bulgarian journalist and researcher, Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, which goes into considerable detail as to what Porton Down has been up to on behalf of the CIA in recent decades. It is a dirty business, not just for the nasty substances involved, multiple substances  including anthrax and Eboli virus, chemical and biological weapons and various gases, but for the unnecessary suffering caused to hundreds of thousands of sentient animals cruelly tortured by the sadists there who have no conscience about the sanctity of life.

As most people know ISIS was supplied with chemical weapons as an attempt to create a false-flag event to blame on Bashir al Assad. This could easily have been supplied by Porton Down or any number of other secret establishments around the globe which are staffed by US personnel working in isolation from indigenous personnel. Of the Skripal poisonings Gaytandzhieva writes:

“Tests using nerve agents VX and VM on guinea pigs were  carried out at Poton Down in 2015. The project was funded by the UK Ministry of Defence. Interestingly, guinea pigs were also found at Sergei Skripal’s home in Salisbury, just a few kilometers away from the secretive chemical and biological military lab. A photo of the Skripals’ pets – a cat and guinea pigs, was posted by his daughter Yulia on Facebook.”

She reveals that in 2013 as an experiment Porton Down scientists released chemical gas on the London Underground without informing the public. You can read the whole article here and I urge you to do so.


This article shows that our media and government are fattening up the ovine public on a diet of lies. The USA controls the western world. We have people leading the country without the main credentials to govern ─ believability and diplomacy. We have a prime minister who condemns without any evidence a very important and powerful country on the world stage, a defence-secretary who tells Russia to “go away” and “shut up” and a foreign secretary who has made so many guffaws another dozen or so will make little difference. These people belong in the realms of fiction. Unfortunately they are in the real world.

The fag-master over bumbling Boris Johnson, the Billy Bunter of Eton, reached the conclusion that “caning did him no good at all”. Or was that Quelch? The paranoid monomaniac captain of the country, Theresa May, is hell-bent on harpooning a huge white whale called Beluga and she will risk the whole crew of the Pequod, and all its fellow-travellers, to try and achieve the unachievable.  Or was that Captain Ahab? Invited to the tea-party is the rudest Defence Secretary the country has ever known, Gavin Williamson, also know as The Mad Hatter. Separate fact from fiction if you can. I am having great difficulty.

  1. Well, there is an interesting coincidence: there are press reports that a “centrist” new party or coalition involving the LibDem, the Progress/blairite wing of Labour, and the “Soubry and friends” wing of the Conservatives.
    The effect of this new party or coalition would be to split the Labour vote, as the SDP and the SDP-Liberal coalition did in 1983 and 1987, and thus hand over a large seat majority to the Conservatives at the next elections, enabling the continuation of thatcherite policies and a soft-exit from the EU.

    It would be very convenient for the launch of this new party/coalition if J Corbyn and Labour were subjected to a vast campaign about alleged alleged institutional antisemitism of the party and the about allegations that the leader is a czech spy and a Putin puppet, “forcing” right-thinking MPs from Progress to leave an allegedly thoroughly compromised “racist” and “traitor” party.

    Amusingly a leading light of progress, Chris Leslie, recently demanded in the Commons that Russia be expelled or suspended from the UN Security Council, from Hansard:

    Mr Chris Leslie (Nottingham East) (Lab/Co-op): I add my support to the measures that the Prime Minister has announced and the condemnation of what is increasingly looking like a rogue state. On the question of the integrity of the United Nations Security Council, we must now begin to talk about reform. Russia cannot be allowed to simply sit pretty, thumbing its nose at the rest of the world community and feeling that it is immune from the rule of law internationally. Will she initiate that sort of reform discussion with the Secretary-General?

    The Prime Minister: Once again, I thank the hon. Gentleman for the remarks he has made today and the support that he has given to the Government, as he did on Monday. We talk to the United Nations about reform of the United Nations in a whole variety of ways. The Catch-22 is that any decision that might be taken in the Security Council to reform it could be ​subject to a veto by Russia, who are sitting there, but the point has been raised not just by the hon. Gentleman but by others, and this is something that we will look at.”


  2. Well, the new centrist party news had appeared on some “unofficial” blogs, but now the story is quite official in the newpapaper that is the epicentre of the campaign of right-wing attacks on Labour:

    Not difficult to speculate these have also been part of the preparation for the launch of the new party:

    * J Corbyn attending the Passover dinner of a jewish group in his constituency is labelled as “anti-semitic” because they are “bundist” socialdemocrats instead of being “mainstream” far-right likudniks.
    * The Conservative party big up the tzarist threat, I mean the red menace, I mean the Putin aggression, to create a “let’s stick together” climate against potential defectors to the new party.

    The Conservatives are probably a bit in a bind over this: obviously “Progress” (or whatever the name of the party will be) will mostly split the Labour vote to punish it for not respecting the boundaries of the neocon/likud/far right “Overton Window”, but at the same time it will likely cause the defection of enough Conservative MPs that T May will lose her majority in the Commons, triggering an election, and currently T May and most Conservative MPs are really keen to avoid a new election, even if they are likely to win it because the Labour vote will be split.


    1. «Unless they remember what happened to David Owen, Shirley Williams and company»

      What happened to them is that they split the Labour vote in 1983 and 1987 and had their revenge, and retired comfortably after that.

      As to “comfortably” there has been an interesting recent episode: Tristram Hunt, not long before the 2017 elections, resigned as MP for Stoke, and there was a chance that the seat would flip to the Conservatives and that would cause trouble for Corbyn.
      Having become unemployed Tristram Hunt applied for and got the £300,000 a year (4 times the salary of an MP) directorship of the Victoria & Alberta, one of the greatest positions in the museum world, even if he has zero experience of museums, curation etc., and surely there were dozens of people across the world with that experience eager to get at the top of the V&A.
      It looked almost as if this was done to teach a lesson: that those who take one for Team New Labour get taken care of very, very generously. The Conservatives have done the same by stuffing a lot of loyal supporters into quangos at £150,000-£200,000 a year.
