Novichok: Amesbury poisoning couple 'had high dose'

Mother-of-three Dawn Sturgess, 44, died on Sunday evening after falling ill in Amesbury on 30 June.

Her partner, Charlie Rowley, 45, who was also exposed to the nerve agent, remains critically ill in hospital.

Police are continuing to hunt for a contaminated container which they believe was handled by the pair.

The BBC understands Mr Rowley's flat in Amesbury is regarded as the key location in the search. A team wearing hazmat suits is combing the small flat, working in 30-minute shifts because of the heat.
[…]
Mr Javid said scientists had not yet been able to determine if the nerve agent in the latest poisoning was from the same batch as that used earlier this year in Salisbury.

Russian former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia fell ill after being poisoned with Novichok in Salisbury. Ms Skripal was discharged from Salisbury District Hospital in April, and her father in May.

A police officer, Det Sgt Nick Bailey, was also left seriously ill after responding to the attack on the Skripals and spent nearly three weeks in hospital.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the head UK counter-terrorism policing which is leading the investigation, said he was "unable to say" if the incident in Amesbury is linked to the poisoning of the Skripals on 3 March - but it is their "main line of inquiry".

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

That picture is incredible all by itself, without the profanity sign:
– the dude on the left (what is he, Grand Space Admiral?) has no waistline and his trousers are visibly, albeit slowly, sliding down;
– poor Melania is either badly shopped, or genetically engineered for big hips and long legs at the cost of microtorso;
– the Donald, showing the doddering Queen the birdie soon to come out of the photographer's camera, obviously likes his pants two sizes too wide (there is a French expression for that, "bande à l'aise") or is just not able to afford a competent tailor;
– Her Majesty, sadly, gets slowly crushed by her formal hat, presumably a cast iron artifact religiously handed down from her ancestors since the industrial revolution.

I’m surprised the queen is carrying a handbag. Surely she has someone to do that for her?

I figured she was hiding her bling in there after being told that Donald might try and grab her Crown Jewels.

She likes to hit the "darkies and wogs" when she passes them in the gardens for her exercise.
