Well, it seems Varadkar has done his bit for EU solidarity and shown himself to be a safe pair of hands in Dublin for the Brussels mafia. By expelling a Russian Diplomat today, Little Leo will also have done no harm to his possible elevation to an EU Commissionership in the future.
You have to love the way these things are spun to us. We were told that, “A high level group,” recommended this course of action but not one single journalist asked just who this so-called high level group were. Do you know? And when they say high level, do they mean in international espionage or politics or could it be a high level group from Fine Gael itself.
Regardless of who these ‘high level’ individuals were, the more important question is, what did they base their judgement on? No evidence of Russian guilt has been produced no matter how hard Teresa May tried. She put the OPCW under severe pressure to pronounce that the alleged Novichok was Russian and not anybody else’s. Despite the intense pressure on them and under duress, the OPCW statement would only say that Novichok was of a type developed in Russia, a very different matter. A Volkswagen car bought in the UK could be said to of a type developed by the Germans. Missiles currently raining down on civilians in Yemen are of a type developed in the UK, but fired by Saudis.
So the Irish Government had NO proof that the Russians had anything to do with the Salisbury incident. Indeed they have no proof that such an incident even took place. Nobody from this country has seen either of the injured parties. But what we do know is that Novichok is supposed to be deadly even with minimal exposure and yet only three were ‘injured’ allegedly by it. Of those, the attending Policeman is out of hospital and back home. The young lady is on the mend and older spy is stable. Reports put out that over forty others were being treated for exposure were denied by the lead doctor at the local hospital in Salisbury. In an open letter to the Guardian, he stated that only three people have been treated, no others. Does nobody in Leinster House find this strange? Has the question not been asked, why are the British lying about this?
In the meantime, an Irish diplomat is making their way back to Dublin following a tit for tat expulsion by the Kremlin.
The Irish government has criticized the Russian move as “unjustified”. What in hell do they mean by unjustified? It is akin to waking up to somebody and punching them in the mouth for no reason and when they punch back, claiming it is unjustified. The level of bullshit and deceit has racketed up to a whole new height. We may not have the warmest relations with Russia but we have no dispute with them. When this State was formed, the Soviet Union was the very first State to recognize us internationally. We profess to be a neutral country and yet we commit this blatantly partisan action of expelling a Russian Diplomat.
I don’t know about you but I do not support our expelling of the Russian from their Dublin Embassy. It is only two years since the Americans were discovered to have been spying both on the French and German leaders and members of their Governments and yet no Yanks were expelled from here or anywhere else. It is quite possible, (or even probable), that the Yanks are spying here as well and their CIA has shown a voracious appetite for murder al over the world. Perhaps some of the unsolved cases on the Garda books are down to them but naturally, we will never know. Professional assassins tend not to get caught, that’s why they are called professional. And on a final point, there are 198 countries on Earth and a mere 20+ have expelled Russian Diplomats over this concocted incident in Salisbury.
I’m with the majority on this!
