“Salisbury 2.0” mystery deepens as British police investigate possible nerve gas use

British counterterrorism police in Amesbury are investigating a new incident of possible poisoning. A man and a woman were found unconscious at a home on Saturday, causes unknown.

This incident took place only about eight miles from the town of Salisbury, where Sergey and Yulia Skripal were poisoned on March 4, allegedly by a “Novichok” type of nerve agent.

Initially, the authorities believed that the pair found Saturday had taken a bad dose of heroin or crack cocaine, but according to the New York Post:

“However, further testing is now ongoing to establish the substance which led to these patients becoming ill and we are keeping an open mind as to the circumstances surrounding this incident,” Wiltshire police said in a statement. “At this stage, it is not yet clear if a crime has been committed.”

London’s Metropolitan Police said that, “given the recent events in Salisbury,” counterterrorism agents were aiding local police in their investigation.

The man and woman were being treated at Salisbury District Hospital — where the Skripals spent weeks in critical condition.

Scientists at Britain’s defense laboratory at Porton Down are conducting tests to determine whether the two incidents are related.

But sources told The Sun that the two were exposed to toxins and are exhibiting similar symptoms to the Skripals.

News.com.Au (Australian News) reported that the Wiltshire police have declared this situation a “major incident.” This declaration allows the British authorities to mobilize multiple emergency agencies.

Already speculation has bubbled up surrounding the similarities of this incident to the one with the Skripals, as well as attempts to try to conflate the locations of the two. What is different though is that these two people are British citizens, not Russians, and more significant still, nothing clear is known about this incident at all.

The investigation is still in a very early stage so at this time nothing is known, nor can any connections or conclusions be reached about anything.

The man and woman, whose names have not been released thus far, are in the same hospital that treated the Skripals for their poisoning. The Skripals themselves both have recovered completely, and have since been taken to an undisclosed location for their protection, this according to all reports on the incident.

“The investigation is still in a very early stage so at this time nothing is known, nor can any connections or conclusions be reached about anything.”…

Quite a different posture from that taken immediately following the Skripal incident. Proves how phony and dishonest some of the Brits can be.

‘A bad dose of heroin or crack cocaine’ sounds implausible. Surely the police know that the two can’t be mistaken for each other, as they have totally different physiological effects.
More likely they were drugged with BZ, like the Skripals.

This lucky couple will have all their organs rejuvenated, look 10 years younger and end up with shiny hair, after being novichukked like Victoria Skripal.
Lucky them.

Hope the UK again ‘finds’ Novichok, because such stupid ‘finding’ would also destroy their ‘highly likely’ allegations of the Skripal incident.

Now the UK has a problem explaining the second incident. Why would Russia do this to this couple in a manner the UK is bound to link to Russia given their line of reasoning for the first incident?

It doesn’t matter. The UK and USA have no credibility anymore, what with the UK’s Skripal false flag attack, and the infinite USA gas attacks etc. they’ve mounted in Syria using false flag attacks with their proxy assassins The White Helmets. I do not believe a word the USA government says anymore and I live here in CO. This is not my government anymore and I don’t want it here. We’ll get rid of it asap.

More BS coming from the UK, looks more like an attempt to stifle/control UK citizens by introducing those other measures. More to all of this than what is presented to the public.

“Obviously Vladolf Putler did it – he realized that his old Novichok crap didn’t work, so he returned to test a new version of it. It’s the only logical conclusion, there’s no point in further investigations.”

The stunts are irritating. This latest distraction is to keep the incompetent May off the front page over the weekend. Nothing more.

There’s an apparent loose cannon somewhere in the immediate area. We’ve seen this producton before, long before the Skripals became involved. While no credible person can attest that it has been, indeed, Novichuk, something is still being perpetrated on the locals by someone. Various governments have been spraying chamicals and radiation on their people for decades, one notable incident occurring over San Francisco in 1950.(1) One need not forget what happened in 2001 with Ft Detrick.(2) Of course, it’s easier to blame the usual suspects, among them Vlad and his functionaries, than it is to admit that someone is creating… Read more »
