The Guardian writing shit like this is damage control.
The most obvious reason that you would blame someone for something with no evidence is that you did it yourself for the purpose of blaming them.
And in this situation, there are no other suspects. And the most obvious suspect is the one that is investigating it.
Everyone could see this. A small child could see this.
If you explained the situation to a 4-year-old, it would tell you “probably Theresa did it to blame her enemy Russia.”
The Guardian knows this, which is why they have to come out with “oh no, this bitch is just really fucking stupid – we swear. Yeah, it’s weird she’s somehow been able to hold power for years with unending scandals, because it seems like you would have to be smart to do that, but really, she’s just this dumb – promise.
It is a basic tenet of British law that the accused are innocent until proven guilty. And yet when it’s Russia in the dock, that seems irrelevant.
Top Tory ministers have squarely accused the Kremlin of the Novichok poisonings in Wiltshire, and the mainstream media has been awash with unknown sources and so-called “experts” claiming they have reasons to believe Russia is involved.
In a refreshingly articulate piece in the Guardian, however, former Times editor Simon Jenkins called out the government over its baseless allegations.
While it is disappointing that it took a MSM journalist so long to reach such an elementary conclusion, it is still comforting that a piece entitled “If the Novichok was planted by Russia, where’s the evidence?” has finally made it to print.
The reason is that people are not believing this shit anymore.
The Skripal poisoning was absolutely cartoonish. Assuming that it was for some reason a priority for Russia to kill some random spy turncoat during the highest period of tension between east and west since the end of the cold war, why on earth would they use chemical weapons? Is this a James Bond film? London has a massive murder rate, and this man could have been stabbed and his wallet taken in a “look like a robbery” incident and no one would have blinked.
It was absurd.
But a second attack?
On random people?
In the middle of the World Cup and days before the meeting with Trump?
Jenkins, who also worked as an editor for the Evening Standard, raises points that, in truth, a primary school kid would conceive. Ergo, why on Earth would Russia attack its own citizens just before hosting the World Cup, which, Jenkins said, is of “mammoth chauvinist significance” to the country?
“I suppose I can see why the Kremlin might want to kill an ex-spy such as Sergei Skripal and his daughter, so as to deter others from defecting,” the former Times and Evening Standard editor said.
“But why wait so long after he has fled, and why during the build-up to so highly politicized an event as a World Cup in Russia?” Jenkins wrote.
He also pointed out the close proximity of the poisonings to the UK’s secretive military research facility at Porton Down, and the inability of anyone to offer a reasonable explanation as to why Russia would carry out the alleged crimes.
Dismissing Whitehall’s scaremongering campaign since the Salisbury attack in March, the columnist said that he will hold off from “capitulating to the politics of terror and fear” because he has “not a smidgen of an answer to any of these questions.”
However he added that his reasoned stance isn’t shared by those in the corridors of power. “That clearly does not apply to government ministers, for whom ignorance is not a sufficient condition for silence,” he said.
The column took aim at Home Secretary Sajid Javid, who said on Wednesday that it was time “the Russian state comes forward and explains exactly what has gone on,” despite having no evidence that the Kremlin was involved in the first place.
Why don’t you explain what is going on, Sajid?
You’re the one who destroyed all the evidence before letting anyone look at it. That seems like something that should be explained.
This is the absolute state of the world – that every single person is not saying “Theresa, what the hell is wrong with you? Why would you do this? Are you insane?”
Fuck this noise.
We want Prime Minister Corbyn.
