"In yet another new menacing twist" will be the perma-clause until my headline for this post actually does come to pass. Aircrafts bound from London to Moscow, were found to have traces of Polonium 210, the radioactive isotope what done in Alexander Litvinenko.

It was the first time that a physical link has been suggested with Moscow — where Mr. Litvinenko accused the authorities of responsibility for his poisoning — and the first time that traces of radioactivity pre-dating November 1 have been found. That could suggest that Mr Litvinenko had ingested or breathed in radioactive material before that day.

An official on duty at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport, Andrei D. Kositsyn, said in a telephone interview that a British Airways flight due to leave Moscow around 5 p.m. today was cancelled and the aircraft remained at the airport. He said the flight was cancelled due to “technical reasons” but he added that the airline had not informed airport officials of the exact reason for grounding the airplane.

Uh-huh. When Kositsyn's accused of Trotskyist deviationism and shipped to the Nichevo Arctic Supply Outpost, we'll all act so surprised.
