Spy Murder Charge ‘Politically Motivated’
Former KGB agent Andrei Lugovoi has dismissed as “politically motivated” Britain’s claim that he murdered fellow spy Alexander Litvinenko.
“I did not kill Litvinenko, have nothing to do with his death and can prove with facts my distrust of the so-called evidence collected by Britain’s justice system,” he told the Russian-owned Itar-Tass news agency.
Lugovoi will be charged if he can be extradited from Russia.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has said it will ask for him to be returned to the UK.
At a news conference, Director of Public Prosecutions Sir Ken Macdonald said: “I have today concluded that the evidence given to us by the police is sufficient to charge Andrei Lugovoi with the murder of Mr Litvinenko by deliberate poisoning.

Studios Gird for Possible Writers Strike
Hollywood Studios Stockpiling Shows for Possible Strike by Writers
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood studios are speeding production on movies and TV shows, preparing for a possible strike by writers and more trouble next year when contracts with actors and directors expire.
TV networks, which are in the midst of planning fall schedules, also might pack their lineups with more reality shows and other unscripted fare as protection against a possible strike.
How much more shit will you Writers Guild of America members line up to eat? How many more of you have to take it in the ass from some Suit who has lucked into a position that allows his uncultured and uneducated ass to boss your educated ass around? How many times do you need to hear that joke about the Polish starlet who slept with the writer? If you want respect, if you want your dues, if you want what’s rightfully yours, you’re going to have to stand up to the Suits and nail them to the fucking wall as they’ve never been nailed before.
It’s time to stop dicking around.
Listen to Paddy Chayefsky, goddamit.
