Critically ill man 'former Russian spy'

Proof that I was some kind of recce?
Yes. And proof that there no need to know foreign language. Any document, headed as "Requirements for candidates for the position of a recce soldier" will be good enough.
I could tell you when I joined the army, the dates I was promoted, the date I was discharged, my rank on discharge or about how much pension I get.
I could tell you where I was based over twenty odd years or which other NATO or non NATO forces I've worked alongside or which countries I thought had good or bad recce troops, (the Germans are particularly good). Or maybe which operational theatres I served in or how many times & where I saw action or about the medals I've been awarded.
Or I could tell you what trades I was qualified in or the eleven trades in which I was a qualified instructor.
I could tell you about the different vehicles & equipment I've used or about the different weapons I've fired (the AK isn't all it's cracked up to be).
Maybe I could tell you about the accommodation I lived in when single or the standard of the food. Or perhaps, when married, the standard of married quarters we had both in the UK & abroad.
Perhaps I could tell you that I still regularly attend reunions & catch up with the blokes I served with, which also allows my wife to catch up with her old mates.
But I won't bother because you'd just claim I was making it up.
So, tell me something that only British recces can know. Something about your platoon's song in the training camp or anything else.
However, I will tell you about the time in 1999 when my Regiment hosted a party of senior Officers from a Russian recce unit. They looked very smart in their tailored combat suits until you looked down at their feet & realised they were wearing plastic slip on shoes.
The first place they wanted to go to was the Regimental medical centre as they couldn't get over the counter medication in Russia.
They also claimed they hadn't been paid for six months. Why would they lie about that?
For example, they wanted you trying to hook them, and then - gave you désinformation.
The next place they wanted to go was to the mess for a decent meal & plenty to drink. They had a particular liking for British real ales.
Sure, they just try to be nice.
[quote[They were a good bunch & we recounted tales to each other about the cold war. Obviously through an interpreter because they could only speak Russian oddly enough, despite being recce soldiers. I don't think they mentioned that the chap who cleaned their barrack room floor could speak a second language either. How bloody odd.[/quote]
When I have my business conversations with English speaker, I usually use interpreters, too. It gives additional time to think and protect from misunderstanding.

But Russia still attempted to murder Mr Skripal & his daughter, poisened a British police officer & two innocent bystanders, one of whom died.
But no doubt you'll claim that's a lie.
Sure. Try to convince me with the arguments, not just with repeating stupid slander.
 
Bad times for Russian trolls having to post at this time when everyone else is partying. Is there a call out fee and extra money for working at this time?
 
Hello Grey Fox and 184461.

Neither of you seems to have replied to my post #7189 about Russian trolls as reported in the Guardian newspaper. KGB-resident did respond, but as far as I am concerned he still has some work to do to convince me that he is NOT a troll.

I am assuming that this is because you (and your shift-change colleagues) are actually both part of the Russian troll system and it is simply too embarrassing for you all to comment on the article. I would be really grateful for your comments.

If you do not respond, then we will all draw the obvious conclusion.
 
I think this lot have been handed 7 years extras for being utterly shite at their task.
Fair play to them turning out at this hour but it's such a poor return for their effort and pay. If I was their line manager reading this gash, I would seriously have to consider reducing their pay, removing privileges or reducing their working conditions until they put their back into what they're doing.

I'm a bit gutted we've not had a link to a WordPress blog with photoshopped images of the Skripals wearing Porton Down merchandise whilst necking Steins of foaming Novichock. C'mon trolls, do something good.

Over 400 pages in and they are still trying to get their spurious crap accepted, as if...
With a couple of (un) notable exceptions, and I do mean a couple, they have had no success whatsoever.
Why do they bother?
Why come to this site where they are laughed at and ridiculed*?
It is because they are pillocks.
For our Russkie apologists please look up 'Pillock', it is an old English word that means 'Pillock'.

*And they are being laughed at and ridiculed.
 
Gray Fox, I've given you a "funny" for that post, fortunately for you there isn't a "Russian d*ckhead beyond help" icon.
If you want to know more about UK Reconnaissance Regiments, use the internet & try engaging brain before posting.

Sorry to make you look like a fool. Again.

No. Obviously, you are not fond of criminal stories. Just imagine: alone old English castle, far away from civilisation, there was stormy night, and there are ten men in the ten rooms. At the morning one of them (Lord Richard Sacker) was found death. Every one was able to kill him. Nobody know who did it. Nobody have alibi, and everybody are suspiciouse in the begging of a story.
Lord Alrich said: 'I'm sure, that murder is Lord Beaverton. Seven years ago, poor Richard steal his silver spoon, and I'm sure, that it was motive enough to kill him right now's. Do you have aliby?
Lord Beaverton: 'With all respect, nobody in the castle have an alibi. It is ludicrously, to blame me that I'm ready to kill somebody, who was pardoned by me, especially seven years after our little conflict. I have another explanations: Lord Alrich, everybody know you little hobby - to test your new poisons on the innocent people, it is possible, that poor Richard was one of your Guinea pigs.
Lady Cordelia had a sexual tie with Richard, and it is possible that after finding out his infedelity, she was ready to murder. Duke Down had a big arrears before him. Barnett Everett was his heir and so on.
There are many possible explanations, but a little of facts'
Cluedo? Highly likely YarS self harming in the attic with a blunt knife.

Are you on drugs or something?

Are you seriously suggesting that the credible alternative to an ex Russian spy being poisoned by a Russian designed chemical poison, delivered by Russians,....is a poor quality Agatha Christie scenario, because the British invented crime fiction?

Key word. "Fiction".
You should be familiar with this from watching Russian media.
'Documentary is a lie, disguised as the truth, and fiction is a truth, disguised as the lie.'
I said about definition of the words 'alibi' and 'other explanations'. It is different things.

So, if you don't want confirm your service in recce regiment, you should not use such arguments. Highly likely, that you was not allowed even to clean floors in their barracks.

A repetition of the standard Russian/ Orwellian rubber dictionary where words mean whatever you need them to be, as long as it serves the Russian State.

It still leaves you proposing a bad Murder She Wrote script as an alternative to a Russian State sponsored assassination attempt on a Russian spy using Russian made chemicals.

Just so that your current lying and blatant trolling is put to rest, have a look at something on the internet. Recce is completed by a number of units in the British Army, primarily Infantry and RAC ie combat units with some specialist units:

Reconnaissance Soldier

YORKS soldiers of the RECCE Platoon are specialists in close reconnaissance. The British Army led the world in using stealth as opposed to force to RECCE the position of enemy forces.

YORKS soldiers of the RECCE Platoon have to have something extra about them in order to progress in this specialised role. They rely on the key skills of:

• Survival in combat – outwitting the enemy

• Camouflage and concealment – never being seen

• Observation – nothing escapes them

• Digital communications

– getting battle winning information to their team and battlegroup.

Each member of the RECCE Platoon must be able to use his initiative and think for himself as well as being able to work in small cohesive teams often far ahead of the Battalion in enemy territory.
A bit of quid pro quo of course. Tell us all about your time in the internal troops as a junior Sgt and ‘sniper’ and time in the 2nd Chechen war.

Do the Russian army still wrap lengths of cloth around their feet instead of wearing socks? Do they still regularly beat their recruits & steal their money & food?
And yet again, you look like a fool.
Tell me about the psychiatric hospital that you live in?

And they don't need to speak a Second language.
The British Army are experts at reconnaissance by stealth. Unlike the Russian army who do reconnaissance by fire, ie, they advance until they get fired at which indicates to them that they've found the enemy.
How stupid is that?
Apologies for slipping that in Scalie.

Yep and no worries, albeit I was hoping YarS would figure that out for himself :)

That's bloody hilarious.
If you wanted to show your complete ignorance of the British army thatpost of yours cracks it 100%

No point explaining why to you as you don't listen.
