Memo to those who have access to BBC1 (UK TV)

The Salisbury Poisonings is a gripping but sad drama/documentary about a shocking act of terror.

It is being shown over three consecutive nights. the first one just finished. Trailer to follow :-


  1. It plays like a thriller. But sadly the nightmarish plot is all true. This was the second time the putinazis used wmd’s on British soil. Putinazi ‘diplomats’ were kicked out, but other than that, fuck all was done..

      • Unfortunately it is behind a paywall. It’s so hard to find reliable journalism these days that I might subscribe to the DT.
        But I saw Berezovskiy’s name there. The putinazis got away with it being classed as suicide, which is laughable. Another one that was swept under the carpet was the grisly 2010 murder of Gareth Williams, almost certainly by the SVI.

        • I’ll post the article, it’s a short one.

          Since the Cold War, disputes emanating from the former Soviet bloc have been played out with deadly consequences on British soil.

          Bringing those responsible to justice, however, is fraught with difficulty and has repeatedly become the subject of diplomatic spats between Britain and Russia.

          September 1978 Georgi Markov, a Bulgarian dissident, was waiting for a bus on Waterloo Bridge when he was stabbed with an umbrella tip containing ricin. He died three days later.

          Francesco Giullino, a Dane of Italian origin who worked for the Bulgarian secret service, is the chief suspect. He denies involvement.

          November 2006 Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian spy, died after drinking tea laced with polonium-210 at a five-star hotel in central London. He died in hospital from radiation poisoning 22 days later.

          Scotland Yard said that it would charge Andrei Lugovoi, a former KGB officer and now a Russian MP, with murder if he was in Britain.

          November 2007 Oleg Gordievsky, a former KGB colonel and MI6 double agent who defected to Britain in July 1985, claimed that he was poisoned at his home in Surrey.

          Mr Gordievsky spent 34 hours unconscious in hospital and later said he had been poisoned with thallium by “rogue elements in Moscow”.

          February 2008 Arkady ‘Badri’ Patarkatsishvili, a Georgian billionaire and business partner of Mr Berezovsky, died of a

          suspected heart attack in his Surrey mansion.

          A month before his death he ran in the Georgian presidential elections, coming third. He has been linked to fraud allegations, political scandals and assassinations.

          March 2012 German Gorbuntsov, a Russian businessman and banker, was left in a coma after being shot by a man armed with a machinegun outside his home on the Isle of Dogs.

          Mr Gorbuntsov has since recovered and spoken of his determination to defy his enemies by continuing to live and work in London.

          November 2012 Alexander Perepilichnyy, a Russian businessman turned supergrass, died while jogging near his home in St George’s Hill, Surrey.

          He had been assisting Swiss prosecutors in a money-laundering investigation involving Russian officials.

          The cause of Mr Perepilichnyy’s death remains a mystery.

  2. I don’t have access to BBC but I’m sure it will make it’s way onto youTube eventually. We can safely say it will never reach Russian TV channels, but it might be aired in Ukraine at some point.

    • I cannot recommend it highly enough.
      Also, Rogan Productions : Putin: A Russian Spy Story, was shown in 3 parts on Channel 4 earlier this year. It is not on YouTube yet, but it’s a brilliant documentary.
      I can also recommend an app: FilmOn TV, which costs $12/m and provides 24/7 access to all UK TV except Sky, direct to your computer or phone, anywhere in the world. It means I can watch Jools Holland’s show even when I’m hiking in the Georgian Caucasus! It also provides a record and save facility so you can watch shows at a time that suits you.

    • There is a vatniki version being made that shows how the Skripals (or however the name is spelled) in a bid for publicity, phone shorty to ask for some poison, but shorty refused, saying it was illegal.

      shorty then spent days personally, phoning our Police to tell them about this stunt, but the Police didn’t believe him.

      Because as we all know, they never do anything wrong.

What is your opinion?
