As long as Paul doesn't mess with NI politics, he's fairly safe ;-)
Paul first has to learn where NI is. I can be his agent. He can set up base in my border hacienda, Gratis.

Temerko is not Russian and he's anty-Putin.
Nice try!

Temerko gets mentioned on the front page of The Sunday Times today.

I didn't want to scare you, but the botched Skripal poisoning looks more like some ordered amateur job than professional Russian espionage. Someone's response to unexplained wealth order?

I’m not under the bed. Everyone knows that’s where the Reds are. I’m in the wardrobe.

BTW, Salisbury is close to Winterbourne Gunner. Coincidence? I think not.

Again, do you really believe it was Russia? Skripal - a former Russian spy working for MI6, lost his wife and two sons (suspicious deaths), spends his days playing tanks. One day his happy go lucky daughter goes for a trip to Moscow (what a brave girl!). She brings him a parcel "tainted" with a sufficient amount of lethal nerve agent to spread from their house and cause havoc in a small city. And the story happens in  the Salisbury setting, with the military chemical-biological weapon factory on the horizon.

The version that they were targeted by Kremlin doesn't add up. Teresa May might be pulling the wrong tongues.

There's a general rule - if something evil happens and Russia is somehow involved, they are guilty. Unless there're strong and independent proofs they're not, then we may carefully take also other hypotheses into consideration.

Seems Theresa May is refusing to provide requested info on the nerve gas to Russia(?)
