Chemical Cover-up Continues: British Consider 'Disappearing' Skripals Somewhere in The Anglosphere

Niall Bradley

Having gone this far with their absurd theater of staging a chemical weapons attack and blaming it on the Kremlin, the British government has apparently decided that... it may as well keep going.

Thanks to Victoria Skripal having the wherewithal to record her phone conversation with her cousin once she got through to her, we now know that the Skripals are doing 'fine' enough that they expect to be discharged from hospital soon. We also learned from the cousin that she overheard someone coaching Yulia on what she could and could not say on the phone. When Victoria told her she'd apply for a visa in order to come to the UK and visit her and her uncle, Yulia foresaw - correctly, as it turns out - that it was unlikely her application would be successful.

In addition, the British continue to refuse Russian embassy staff in London permission to visit her - as they are required to do under international law.

The British now have a serious problem on their hands: what to do with the Skripals? If they let them return to Russia, they'll almost certainly divulge details embarrassing to the British government.

Today the British Sunday Times reports that:

'Sergei and Yulia Skripal offered new identities with CIA help - Poisoned daughter refuses to meet Russians'
The Times cites MI6 sources as saying they've discussed relocating the Skripals out of the UK with the CIA, and that the Russian nationals are to be "offered new identities and a new life in America", ostensibly to "protect them from further murder attempts." Are they to be 'offered' this choice, or manipulated and effectively forced into accepting it?

If not the US, then to one of the other 'five eyes' countries in the Anglosphere - Canada, Australia or New Zealand:

"The obvious place to resettle them is in America, because they're less likely to be killed there and it's easier to protect them there under a new identity. There's a preference for them to be resettled in a five-eyes nation because their case would have huge security implications."
