  1. Queens v Dundee United

    It's probably fair to assume Edge was at fault for the goal seconds after he came on.
  2. Queens v Dundee United

    Looking at the remaining fixtures, we can still make a complete arse of it so this is a big game. A loss will make 5th a possibility if ICT beat Dunfermline, a draw will guarantee a playoff spot and a win will keep 2nd alive. Also if ICT win it means they'd go to 4th with a win vs Livi on Tuesday so I'll be keeping an eye on that one too. Both teams to score looks like free money - recent results 2-3, 1-3,, 2-1, 4-3, 2-3, 3-3, 1-4. Prediction: 0-0.

    Safe to say whoever 'leaked' them the info will be avoiding any 5th floor balconies for a while.

    Even the biased Syrian Observatory says 65 were shot down and that's from rebel sources. Bit of a minter of an attack all round. Trump went full North Korea and said 100% got through.

    The Russian claim is that the British coordinated with the 'white helmets' to hijack a conventional attack with claims of toxic gas, which is what the doctor said, and also what another doctor told RT the other day. Not saying any of this is true, just that they seem to corroborate each other. Of course it would help if the Russians actually released their 'irrefutable proof' but it seems the norm these days for all sides to claim this without ever producing it.

    Syria & Russia had been trying to get the inspectors out since immediately after the alleged attack. They could have delayed or made excuses before they even left for Syria if that was their plan. It's hilariously hypocritical that we're suddenly so full of respect for their work after bombing f**k out the place the night they arrived. As for Fisk's article, it's a rare example of a mainstream western journalist with credible testimony from people on the ground in Douma telling a story which is the complete opposite of the mainstream narrative, and also corroborates what the Russians & Syrians have been saying. He said the doctors on duty that night are giving evidence presumably to the OPCW so time will tell.

    I know you're also sceptical of the Douma incident. Did you see this from Robert Fisk in the Independent yesterday? https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/syria-chemical-attack-gas-douma-robert-fisk-ghouta-damascus-a8307726.html

    The plot thickens. If Lavrov's claims are correct this will surely be the end of May, Johnson and the rest.

    Some truth bombs on Syria, on MSNBC of all places.

    I don't disagree about Boris, but for the ambassador to roll out the line too suggests it was the official UK position. I wasn't aware myself at the time that PD had previously publicly stated they couldn't confirm the source. As far as I knew they were still saying 'not yet confirmed', so maybe the idiots in charge of our government assumed they would tell them what they wanted to hear.

    Boris didn't "f**k up". He specifically said he personally asked the scientists at PD and was told categorically that it came from Russia. He lied to justify the certainty of his position. And the UK ambassador to Russia said the same, on video, and this video/tweet was deleted by the Foreign Ministry as soon as PD stated in a high-profile TV interview that they couldn't confirm it. I don't see how this could be interpreted any other way.

    Not sure why the name should be classified, but the composition is apparently not made public in case some bad actor decides to try and make some.

    A foreign minister or ambassador directly lying to advance policy is hardly the same as newspapers speculating on a major story. By that logic the British version of the Salisbury poisoning has changed about 20 times too.

    The Swiss lab dodged the main point, which was the claim that they found a different nerve agent in the sample (BZ) alongside novichok. They only restated they have no doubt Porton Down earlier found novichok. It would be huge news if true, or would take a single sentence/tweet to dismiss if it's false.
