    Okay, first locals are told (a week after the event) to bag their clothes (in Salisbury) if concerned about contamination from 'Russian' nerve agent, and then to 'dry clean' them. And now they are told to 'destroy them.'

    What will the advice be next week, to cast them into the fires of Mordor?!

    Yes, that does seem pretty inconsistent. I would point out however few sets of clothes is small potatoes compared to telling legions of mentally challenged folks that America is going to "build a great big beautiful wall, and MEXICO is going to pay for it" then turning around and sticking the American taxpayer for it. When it comes to mistakes, the British government is minor league compared to the US of A. 😞

    The wall serves no purpose other than to be a political project.

    It is the completion of a promise kept to the gullibles that got the current administration into office.

    The Donald keeps his promises.
    Didn't you know that ??

    Take a bath, eat cucumber sandwiches and wash them down with liberal amounts of Irish stout.

    It won't protect you from novichok, but you'll feel better.

    I didn't want to go 'full-nerd' on you, although technically Mount Doom is in the land of Mordor, so my statement maintains its integrity. (Technically).


    "But they were all of them deceived, for another ring was made: in the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom." (Movie quote).
