THREAD 2 on #Amesbury:

In the last thread I pointed out that the Amesbury tragedy, and the Skripal poisoning had many clues which pointed to Fentanyl overdose being the culprit rather than Novochok.

2/ Since then more detail has come in about the symptoms of the deceased Dawn Sturgess and her critically ill boyfriend Charley Rowley.

Many papers report that they were "gurgling" and "foaming at the mouth".

The Times, is paywalled, but the the Sun…
3/ isn't. It's reported in many other places too.

Two of the symptoms of FENTANYL overdose happen to be:

* Gurgling
* Foaming at the mouth…
4/ The Australian (sadly paywalled) has the headline:

"Gurgling, Foaming at the Mouth Novichok victim was like a Zombie."…

Another symptom, highlighted in the last picture, is "stiffening of the body .. confusion, strange behaviour"

A zombie walks with
5/ stiff arms and legs. So the symptoms match.

Fentanyl is also said to be fast acting. @russia_watch has a timeline, that shows four minutes between Dawn shooting up and collapsing:

6/ This again matches with Fentanyl overdose which is said to take seconds to minutes.

Note the reference to Fentanyl being mixed with heroin by dealers. It seems likely that's this is what happened. Some dealer mistook micrograms for milligrams, & it cost Dawn Sturgess her life
7/ Fentanyl fits all the symptoms.

It explains why the policeman who gave the Skripals mouth to mouth didn't die.

It explains why Sam Hobson who was with the Amesbury couple didn't die.

It explains why the initial diagnosis in both cases WAS Fentanyl.

So why claim Novichok?
8/ The local paper reported the symptoms of Novichok poisoning as:
9/ These don't match the description given of the Amesbury tragedy.

While the Police are looking for an exotic Russian toxin, a man has been found dead in local woods. The Sun article says that dealers left stashes in parks and crack hangouts. Another Fentanyl victim?
10/ So how did we get from the initial report of two victims from contaminated drugs, to an international incident?

About the same time that the incident was taken over by anti-terrorism Police.

Ironically it seems to be them that have caused the terror. But for what reason?
11/ (edit)

The Sun also report that Dawn's son said:
"They said she had the same symptoms as the Skripals, including foaming at the mouth. Things are worse for mum though as they said the Skripals didn’t have heart attacks.”

Foaming is a Fentanyl symptom, not a Novichok one.
