'Mad Dogs and Englishmen'

We are in a torrid era, where any person seemingly can accuse any individual of anything dastardly, without there being any evidence to support the allegations and then, too often, there is no redress if their allegations are found to be unsupported, non credible and without any evidence. The damage is then done to reputations where dignity and respect become lost. Honour is then devalued and trust is abandoned with relations severely compromised. This culture has now extended to cross border international relations.

This era is struggling to sink any lower.

I'm no lover of Mr.Putin and his chess playing tactics to foreign policy, especially his clear involvement in supporting Syria and his duplicity to the murder of many innocent Syrians. His agents have been clearly implicated in the murders of his former country men abroad. There are fairly big questions to be answered about his personal wealth accrued over the last 10 years. With it reported to be over $300 billion; on a Presidential salary? Whilst many of his countrymen live in poverty.

Hold on. Can we just accuse, without any significant evidence, and blame the Russians?  At this stage, until evidence comes forwards, this has the makings of  'naughty boy' (find an escapegoat) syndrome.  If we have evidence we should file procedures in the International Court of Justice to have him charged with crimes against humanity. On the surface he is probably as guilty as described, but can we allow the UK to be the accusers, prosecutors, jury and punishers on the statements such as Russia involvement is 'highly likely' and 'in all probably' the case. Little Englanders might determine this is not British, but is seems it has become a pivotal 'British'  way of Justice.

We are in an era of accusing anyone and everyone, with those accusing feeling safe that there will not be any repercussion, it is an extension to our modern culture of modern policing, that espouses guilt over innocence. Until evidence comes forwards of Russian involvement in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, the Russians are probably whistling Noel Cowards 'Mad dogs and Englishmen'.
