Much as I agree with Boris here, I really do find myself wondering if it's just a cynical marker being put down for a future run at the top seat.
I wish I could trust politicians...

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Goddamn "commies" couldn't keep it up.
Then it was "Al Qaeda". But Bin Laden got whacked.
Followed by "ISIS", but they've been battered, don't shift newspapers any more and are so "2016".
Then "Kim Jong-un" suddenly becomes all nice.
As each dissipates, another arch-enemy seems to suddenly appear.

Politicians have to have a "bad guy".
Even George Dubya himself said so !!!

Problem is, none of them could tramp through the whole of Western Europe in about 10 minutes flat if they felt so inclined.

The timing of this "incident" is, (if I were a skeptical man) a bit fortuitous for Mrs May...You know, a bit like the kerfuffle that saved the complete Ubercunt Thatcher from facing a back bench rebellion and a vote of no confidence back in '82.

(Incidentally General Pinochet was, funnily enough ALSO facing political troubles back in Argentina. Coincidence?...)

Still, a good old fashioned Tom Clancy-esque conspiracy takes everyone's minds off of troublesome little matters such as Brexit, the shambles that is the NHS, collapsing multi-nationals, spiraling national debt, child prostitution rings, knife crime, tax increases and a welfare system that's becoming akin to a social cleansing program.
