Coward Johnson refuses to meet Russian ambassador as Brit claims about the Salisbury poisoning collapse

Boris Johnson: Nothing to say. Is that better than talking nonsense?

The mainstream news is reporting that the UK government is denying access to Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, even to members of their family – and also that Boris Johnson is refusing requests for a meeting with the Russian ambassador.

Some may be angered by the denial of access to Skripal family members. I am not one of those people.

This is a highly-charged moment between the UK and Russia. It would be unreasonable to believe the Russian government is not putting pressure on Skripal family members within its influence – such as cousin Viktoria – to exert similar pressure on Sergei and Yulia to act in the interests of that country. Pressure of a sinister nature, that is.

Rather than allow this to happen, possibly endangering more members of the Skripal family, it would be better to deny them access, thereby making it impossible for the Russian government to blame them for failing to persuade (coerce) their family members into doing and saying what Russia wants.

Boris Johnson’s reason for refusing to meet the Russian ambassador is obvious, of course: He has nothing to say.

All the UK’s claims about Russian involvement in the Salisbury poisonings have collapsed as evidence has mounted up against them.

If Mr Johnson were to meet the Russian ambassador, he would have nothing to say but “sorry”.

And Boris Johnson is far too arrogant ever to say that to Johnny Foreigner. He’s a racist, remember?

    Well that takes care of the hypothetical Russian coercion. I think the Russians may take the opposite viewpoint in light of their citizen being held apparently incommunicado by a foreign government with an axe to grind and face to save.

      What about the telephone call that was plastered all over the Russian press?

    Quite clear from the Sunday politics shows that at last this dumb Government has woken up to the fact they have appointed a frustrated comedian to their front benches. This one cell mop head is a loser and incompetent in handling anything sensitive mainly because he is so self centred… he has no sensitivities….maybe to long at the wrong type of schools to understand common sense and being sensitive to others. He has got to go which I bet was May and t’others original intention to ensure his promotion to the wrong job so he would not only screw up but relieve the pressure on his ever being put forward for prime minister job. Just needs kicking out provided the May has grown the necessary spheres to do the business. Bye Boris.

    I doubt very much Russia would be applying pressure on Skripal family, from what I’ve read elsewhere, he was looking at returning home, something that Litvinenko and Berezovsky were both trying to do before they met their doom.

    These materials clearly indicate that the British authorities were aware of the false nature of the statements regarding the preparation of the attempt on Berezovsky, but still granted him refugee status. ”

    The Prosecutor General promised to publicize “the factual circumstances established during the investigation in the criminal case of Boris Berezovsky’s unlawful receipt in September 2003 of asylum in Britain with the help of a false denunciation of the preparation by Russian special services of his murder in the summer of 2003.”

    All will be revealed tomorrow.

    Boris can always stick his fingers in his ears and sing La-la-Lala …..La-la-Lala as he did with Newsnight journalist and Jeremy Paxman, I think he is afraid of the look of contempt and disdain on their face of what an incompetent incompoop he is.
