Wheres James bond when you need him??...hehe... seriously though, it would not suprise me, Putin is deluded in thinking hes a big dog on the world stage.... Hes broke, and dangerous to boot..... Look at his new friends, all he wants to do is get back on track to be the mighty USSR again.... Getting rid of the opposition within is the start.....

I would say the UK Russian relations have taken a knock.... unless they asked permission first... wouldnt be the first time, the big boyz club made informal arrangements like that...

It's been all over the news here. I don't doubt one bit that Putin is behind it. It looks like classic KGB procedure to me and last time I checked Putin was ex-KGB.

As you say the relations bettween the 2 countries would have taken a knock........but i cant see MI5 not knowing.....the parts of the British public that go around thinking everything is rainbows and butterflies are suddenly shocked when things like this come out.......they think...... "No not our goverment we wouldnt have had any hand in that sort of thing".........i bet things like this happen all the time.......it just never becomes public knowledge.....

Tony Blair has stated nothing political will stand in the way of finding out what really happened and has asked russia to make sure it co-operates fully with the investigation....8 people are now being tested for radiation posioning......if it is a russian job.......then what a shambles.....and second if they havent had the green light from MI5 then cheeky bastards....this isnt one of the old soviet states were you can go around spreding your soviet style fear at your own free will..... if it happened Latvia or Georgia wouldnt be surprising.....but still unaceptable......doing it here is either big balls or small brain.....and knowing putin its a bit of both

Big Balls, Small Brain and Large Ego... Thats Putin... hes a tit!!.... Thats the kind of posturing and arrogance that if unchallanged, can run roughshod over whats good in the world.... Fear is a powerful incentive to do nothing... well feck em..... need more then 007 poisen to stop the free....
