Le Royaume-Uni continue d'exporter des armes vers la Russie. Le Premier secrétaire du PS Jean-Christophe Cambadélis invitait mardi David Cameron "à balayer devant sa porte" avant de critiquer la décision française de livrer son Mistral à la Russie.

Le Royaume-Uni continue d'exporter des armes vers la Russie

Il a aujourd'hui une preuve à l'appui. Un rapport de quatre comités parlementaires britanniques indique mercredi que "l'embargo absolu" sur la livraison des armes vers la Russie annoncé par David Cameron, pas plus tard que lundi, était faux. Exclusive: Controversial US scientist creates deadly new flu strain for pandemic research - Science - News. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison has genetically manipulated the 2009 strain of pandemic flu in order for it to “escape” the control of the immune system’s neutralising antibodies, effectively making the human population defenceless against its reemergence.

Exclusive: Controversial US scientist creates deadly new flu strain for pandemic research - Science - News

Most of the world today has developed some level of immunity to the 2009 pandemic flu virus, which means that it can now be treated as less dangerous “seasonal flu”. However, The Independent understands that Professor Kawaoka intentionally set out to see if it was possible to convert it to a pre-pandemic state in order to analyse the genetic changes involved. The study is not published, however some scientists who are aware of it are horrified that Dr Kawaoka was allowed to deliberately remove the only defence against a strain of flu virus that has already demonstrated its ability to create a deadly pandemic that killed as many as 500,000 people in the first year of its emergence.

It's too long-winded! What George VI's adviser thought of early draft of the King's Speech

George VI’s address to the nation, depicted in the 2010 movie starring Colin Firth as the stammering monarch, had been written at least nine days beforehand. The three-page document that has come to light is entitled ‘Draft King’s Speech’ and is dated August 25, 1939. This early draft of the King's Speech, announcing the outbreak of war, was written at least nine days before George VI addressed the nation Although the tone remained the same, some of the content was significantly different. Millions were in germ war tests. The Ministry of Defence turned large parts of the country into a giant laboratory to conduct a series of secret germ warfare tests on the public.

Millions were in germ war tests

A government report just released provides for the first time a comprehensive official history of Britain's biological weapons trials between 1940 and 1979. Many of these tests involved releasing potentially dangerous chemicals and micro-organisms over vast swaths of the population without the public being told. While details of some secret trials have emerged in recent years, the 60-page report reveals new information about more than 100 covert experiments. The report reveals that military personnel were briefed to tell any 'inquisitive inquirer' the trials were part of research projects into weather and air pollution. The tests, carried out by government scientists at Porton Down, were designed to help the MoD assess Britain's vulnerability if the Russians were to have released clouds of deadly germs over the country. La toxicomane milliardaire connaissait-elle le meurtrier du premier ministre suédois ?

La sinistre affaire a fait la une des journaux britanniques cet été.

La toxicomane milliardaire connaissait-elle le meurtrier du premier ministre suédois ?

La voilà qui intéresse maintenant la Suède, qui n'a toujours pas mis la main sur le meurtrier du premier ministre Olof Palme, tué en 1986. A priori, rien ne rapproche la mort d'Eva Rausing, 48 ans, et celle de M. Palme, abattu d'une balle dans le dos dans les rues de Stockolm. La justice suédoise a confirmé avoir été en contact avec Mme Rausing quelques mois avant sa mort, tout comme l'auteur de deux livres sur la mort de M. Palme. Par alliance, Eva Rausing appartenait à l'une des grandes familles industrielles suédoises. Hans et Eva se sont connus du fait de leur addiction à la drogue. Ainsi, en 2008, Eva Rausing a dû s'excuser après avoir tenté de pénétrer dans l'ambassade américaine à Londres avec 10 g de crack, 2,5 g d'héroïne ainsi qu'un produit stimulant interdit également utilisé comme coupe-faim.
