On March 4 2018 the British/Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found incapacitated on a bench in Salisbury. The British government asserts that they were affected by a chemical poison of the so called Novichok group. The case led to a diplomatic conflict as Britain accused Russia of an attempt to kill the Skripals. No evidence was provided by the British government to support those accusations. The Skripals have since been vanished.
Today an intriguing new detail of the case came to light. Spire FM, a local radio station in Salisbury, reports of a young woman, Abigail McCourt, who was given a ‘Lifesaver Award’ for her involvement in the Skripal case:
The 16 year old, from Larkhill, was the first to spot two people collapsed on a bench in the Maltings on March 4th and didn’t hesitate to help. Abigail quickly alerted her mum, a qualified nurse, who was nearby and together they gave first aid to the victims until paramedics arrived.It soon became clear this was no ordinary medical incident, but the poisoning of a former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia, with Novichok.
Immediately following the incident and with the world’s media focused on Salisbury, the pair didn’t want any want press attention and kept their involvement quiet.
But Abby’s mum now feels the time is right for her daughter to be recognised for the “incredible” way she dealt with the scenario. Alison nominated her for the Lifesaver Award at Spire FM’s Local Hero Awards, and the judges were unanimous in their decision that Abigail was a very worthy winner.
Earlier reports mentioned that a ‘military nurse’ had attended to the Skripals. Following the above report Elena Evdokimova checked the name of the young woman’s mothers and found a curiosity
Here is the thing. Alison McCourt is not just one random ‘off-duty army nurse’. She is the Chief Nursing Officer for the British Army in the rank of Colonel:
Colonel A L McCourt OBE ARRC QHN – Assistant Head Health Strategy / Chief Nursing Officer (Army) – Senior Health Advisor (Army) Department.
Colonel McCourt was appointed Chief Nursing Officer on February 1 2018, just one month before the Skripal incident happened. Colonel McCourt lives in Larkhill, a garrison town some 11 miles from Salisbury. She is known to visit elsewhere.
There is a discrepancy between the Spire FM report and Alison McCourt’s narrative of the event in the video posted with the Spire report. The written report only mentions Abigal McCourt and her mother. But in the video the mother speaks of “Abigal and the rest of our family” who were the first to arrive at the Skripal poisoning scene. She continues to contrast “Abigal” and “we” and later again “Abigal” and “the rest of us” meaning that there were more persons on the scene than just the mother and the daughter. In a recorded interview at the bottom of the Spire FM page Abigal says that it was her brothers birthday and that “we” were out celebrating it. (She also mentions that “the woman [Yulia Skripal] was not breathing at the time we found her.” How then could she vomit?)
In 2014 the Daily Mail reported on Colonel Alison McCourt’s deployment as British mission leader to Sierra Leone where she helped to fight the highly infectious Ebola disease. According to that report McCourt is married and has two children. Her son must by now be fourteen. There is no further information available about her husband.
Neither Colonel McCourt nor her daughter were affected by the extremely dangerous Novichok with which the Skripals were allegedly poisoned. But what about the other persons, her son and her husband, who were also at the scene? What were they doing?
No additional information about the McCourts has so far come to light.
Isn’t it an extremely unlikely coincidence that the first person who ‘by chance’ attends to the Skripals is the top nurse of the British army? An experienced officer, highly connected, who is also know for handling highly infectious patients? Who wrote the script for this enthralling saga (rec.)?
This is one of the many, many ‘coincidences’, curiosities and lies that make the official Skripal poisoning narrative so unbelievable.
