THE BEREZOVSKY PLOT DOES NOT COMPUTE
Yesterday it was claimed by Boris Berezovsky that MI5 and Scotland Yard foiled a plot to kill him. The plot allegedly involved a man visiting London with his child. That man would attempt to lure Berezovsky to a hotel and shoot him, claiming the murder was business-related and not a political assassination. The man was arrested, held for questioning for 3 days, then handed over to Immigration and deported.
Can these two opposite approaches to potential murderers be reconciled? I can't see how.
Great Britain has been on and on and on to Russia about handing Luguvoi over. Yet when the opportunity arose to catch a Russian assassin red-handed about to murder Berezovsky (a) there are no reports in the media at the time, (b) no name or photograph are released of the alleged assassin, and more bizarrely (c) there is no trial for conspiracy to murder, a crime which ranks among rape and terrorism for which the sentence is life imprisonment! Such a trial of a Russian assassin caught red-handed would have exposed Russia and Putin for the bully and thug they are portrayed.
But we haven't seen that, have we?
Instead, the alleged assassin was quietly sent on his way. Then on the day certain people were expecting Russia to react to the expulsion of four Russian diplomats, this bizarre Berezovsky/assassination story is circulated, one month after the alleged assassin was allegedly arrested.
I cannot understand this. Can you?
Unless it's all bollox.
Somehow 7/7 happened.
Somehow 21/7 happened.
Somehow Litvinenko was murdered with a radioactive poison.
Somehow 30/6 in London and Glasgow happened.
But when a Russian assassin is caught red-handed about to murder Berezovsky he is released without charge.
