New ‘chemical attack’ scare grips Britain

The anxiety only increased when it emerged that 10 people, including three police officers, were injured in the “attack”.   But on closer examination the “chemical attack” appears to have involved a group of revellers spraying ammonia on each other.   This scaremongering by the British media has form when it comes to so-called “chemical” attacks.   Just a couple of days earlier the tabloid newspaper The Sun on July 05 ran the dramatic headline “A Terrorist’s Dream” to refer to a story by rival tabloid, the Daily Star, about a security breach at the Porton Down chemical warfare research facility.   The British obsession about bogus chemical weapons attacks came into sharp relief last year during the so-called Skripal affair. The British government accused Russia’s military intelligence agency, the GRU, of attempting to assassinate the double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with the Novichok nerve agent.   The alleged attack occurred in the English town of Salisbury, but more than a year after the alleged incident key facts about the so-called Skripal affair remain unresolved.   Foremost, what has happened to Sergei and Yulia Skripal following their release from Salisbury district hospital in April 2018?   The Daily Telegraph’s story on the pair on January 07 fuelled speculation that the entire incident may have been contrived, at least in part, by the British intelligence services.   According to the Daily Telegraph the pair are still living in the UK and working for Britain’s intelligence services.   In addition to the Skripal affair, the UK has regularly accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against terrorist groups. But on closer examination these alleged attacks were either fake or were in fact perpetrated by the terrorist groups against local civilians.   In view of the British establishment’s fondness for “chemical attacks”, analysts expect more fear mongering and bogus incidents in the future.
