Dunno. He was a member of virulently anti-muslim Henry Jackson Society though, so that probably tells you something.

Not according to Guido!! https://order-order.com/2018/07/11/factcheck-gets-boris-details-wrong/

I know you don’t click his links but FYI it signs off with
Yet another example of the media’s blind hatred of Boris resulting in basic factual errors…

Ah yes that blind hatred of Johnson in the media we see so much of.


#83

I did click that link, and if you read it, it’s clear that Boris still lied.


#84

I didn’t submit it as evidence to the contrary…


#85

Hang on, did you mean to post this in this thread?


#86

Ha! No, this was meant to be in the Brexit Thread you’re right. Sake. Apologies for the confusion.

I find it highly interesting that a normal person has a bottle of novichok lying around the house and furthermore that the police didn’t find it until the day roughly 90% of the news is devoted to donald trump. I dare say this whole thing, including the attack earlier this year, is one gigantic MI5/6 self own. My current theory is that it’s a snow job against Russia or, more likely, someone snuck it out of a UK lab for god knows what reasons (embittered lab drone passed over for promotion? someone looking to make a fast buck? seething cuckhold? idk)/somehow by mistake, and things have gotten out of hand.


#96

I am aware that other guy was an actual spy but it still dont mean our security services weren’t doing someone a favour and fucked up afterwards. There could easily be a vial of lucozade sitting in a spook lab somewhere now only everyone genuinely thinks its novichok.
