    Seemed to say Russia has (deliberately or not) misinterpreted the Swiss labs findings - given that the lab itself denies that it’s proved Novichok (which scarily was just in autotype in my phone without me ever having typed it?!?!) was not used.

    Another illustration of the power of social media and the increasing use of the words "fake news" to discredit disinformation or factual information you wish to discredit.

    For those that use Faceache - how many times have you seen your otherwise intelligent friend re-post nonsense such as the; "new Facebook algorithm only lets me see posts from 25 people, please post on my timeline....".

    This sums it up nicely:

    Got to smile at the BBC's claim that RT is Kremlin funded, oh the irony is lost on them.
