Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The site hasn't - afaik - any specific connection to the UK so I think it's safe to write the agent's name.

DSMA notices are supposed to be voluntary anyway.
The DSMA-Notices are intended to provide to national and provincial newspaper editors, to periodicals editors, to radio and television organisations and to relevant book publishers, general guidance on those areas of national security which the Government considers it has a duty to protect. The Notices have no legal standing and advice offered within their framework may be accepted or rejected in whole or in part.

Murray, UK:Blocked By Facebook and the ["]Vulnerability["] of New Media
Normally over half of our visitors arrive via Facebook. These last few days, virtually nothing has come from Facebook:
What is especially pernicious is that Facebook deliberately imposes this censorship in a secretive way. The primary mechanism when a block is imposed by Facebook is that my posts to Facebook are simply not sent into the timelines of the large majority of people who are friends or who follow. I am left to believe the post has been shared with them, but in fact it has only been shown to a tiny number. Then, if you are one of the few recipients and do see the post and share it, it will show to you on your timeline as shared, but in fact the vast majority of your own friends will also not receive it. Facebook is not doing what it is telling you it is doing - it shows you it is shared - and Facebook is deliberately concealing that fact from you.

Twitter have a similar system known as "shadow banning".

Axios, US:Facebook Hires Ex-GOP Senator To Advise On Anti-Conservative ["]Bias["]
The partnerships, first reported by Axios, come a week after lawmakers traded verbal blows on the issue in a House Judiciary Committee hearing where one Democrat called the notion of Facebook's anti-conservative bias a "hoax" meant to shore up political support from misinformed voters.

Is there no Facebook user interface to create or save ("bookmark") URL addresses of web pages and websites?

FaceBook does not have a bookmark feature.  Have to use a web browser for that.

So even the Skripal poisoning attempt has now ties linking to Trump? Are there any major news developments that have not been tainted by Drumpf yet?

Latest .... almost completing the puzzle of Trump's win from behind ...

Trump's team snooped on Obama officials. That's gutter politics | The Guardian Opinion - Jill Abramson |

    The only leader who has tried harder than Trump to kill the Iran deal is Benjamin Netanyahu, which is why, no doubt, the Israeli firm [Black Cube] was hired shortly after Trump visited Tel Aviv and met with the Israeli prime minister to discuss it.

    This kind of gutter politics is also signature Netanyahu, who, like Trump, is facing an epic corruption investigation [Lahav 433] that could cost him his job.

The Israeli Mossad are experts in the "piggy-back" form of a coup d'état and ditto assasinations. Murder Inc., covert operation under cover of another event ...  :(

This has now popped up on the UK labour left blogosphere

Evolve Politics - William Richardson - The UK government issued a media censorship order over Skripal poisoning links to Trump-Russia dossier

All has been quiet on the Salisbury poisoning front for a while. That is, until now. In a shocking revelation, it has come to light that the Defence and Security Media Advisory Committee (DSMA) - a Governmental body - issued a so-called D-Notice requesting the censorship of numerous mainstream media outlets regarding the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Salisbury on the fourth of March this year, allegedly by Russia, using the Novichok nerve agent. Sergei Skripal was a double agent for the UK who was obtained and brought to Britain under a `spy-swap scheme' in 2010. The circumstances surrounding his alleged poisoning have been translucent at best, and altogether weird.

It now appears to be the case that the media was censored in how and what it reported of the Skripal poisoning in the days following its revelation.

Now it has turned up there, the other blogs will be chipping in very quickly and that will have inevitable bleed through into other sectors.

Looks like the game's afoot...

"not yet widely available in the public domain."

The UK government issued a media censorship order over Skripal poisoning links to Trump-Russia dossier

The D-Notice issued on 7 March 2018, three days after the Skripal poisoning happened, stated the following:

    "Private and Confidential: Not for Publication, Broadcast or for use on Social Media TO ALL EDITORS The issue surrounding the identify of a former MI6 informer, Sergei Skripal, is already widely available in the public domain. However, the identifies of intelligence agency personnel associated with Sergei Skripal are not yet widely available in the public domain. The provisions of DSMA Notice 05 therefore apply to these identities. DSMA Notice 05 inter alia advises editors against the: `inadvertent disclosure of Sensitive Personnel Information (SPI) that reveals the identity, location or contact details of personnel (and their family members) who have security, intelligence and/or counter-terrorist backgrounds, including members of the UK Security and Intelligence Agencies, MOD and Specials Forces.'"

The D-Notice instructs the media not to report on matters surrounding security personnel associated with Sergei Skripal.

Nice! Beat many of msm to the fact of agent Pablo Miller .... was available on the Internet when I posted my diary in January 2017 about the "dodgy" dossier from Chris Steele and his MI6 partners at Orbis Business Intelligence. Certainly draws parallels with the Israel Mossad "Black Cube" group. That saga goes a bit deeper into the heart of the deep state in Washington DC and environs.
