Which regt he was in is not important...why would you think it was?
Who he has a 40yr history of knowing- is, considering the jobs they're both now in.
Considering his oppo of nearly 40yrs was in the same unit, at the same time, then SIS, then Orbis with Steele... and the 2 X D Notices from the Skripal case are shielding him from being mentioned in the media as SS's handler...all the while Urban is writing a book all about the Skripal Files while the case still hasn't got anywhere in over 18wks.
All the while Urban is the journo for state-tv?
I'd say it's massively relevant, now wouldn't you?
He’s not ‘the’ journo, he’s ‘a’ journo. There are plenty of others reporting on this story.
