It seems remarkable that Moscow troublemaker ALEXANDER LITVINENKO was murdered only shortly after becoming a British citizen. He was naturalised in October and poisoned at the beginning of November.
But perhaps the biggest question is why this has not been picked up by the general media.
Was someone in the Kremlin sending out a strong and ominous message? (Apparently Putin had always been jealous of Litvinenko's hair.) Or were other forces working to embarrass Moscow by waiting until Litvinenko became a 'Brit'?
Answers may be found at the PRO - in about 100 years (or the Kremlin now).
Perhaps though, as things happen these days, "Rendition Airways" may head East, and another spy may be due in from the cold.
