    I must say I do admire the robust Russian attitude to traitors.

    They just kill them. Here, we give them Guardian columns or make them senior members of the Labour Party.

    The Kremlin have stated that they have 'no knowledge' of any incident regarding this chap in Salisbury.

    Well there's that cleared up, then.

    Anyway, why are we bothering to try and save him? Surely it's curtains for the fella.

    He was exchanged though, no? What sort of absolute cad returns for revenge upon an exchanged prisoner? Surely he should be considered hors de combat?

    One also wonders quite how effective his new identity and cover was. Not very, would be the obvious answer. Bit of a balls up by SIS, really.

    He allegedly spoke to Police in the days prior to this incident to state that he was concerned for his safety. Implies that he knew they were on to them.

    Still, I suppose it sends out a strong message to any other Russians thinking of batting for the other side.

    Yes. Could be tricky getting anyone to jump the fence after this.

    Yes, but these chaps are already fully aware of happens if they're caught bending.

    No, there's always people who fancy it regardless. It's a madness, in a way.
