Berezovsky escapes assassination attempt?

As much as I dislike Boris Berezovsky, I have no desire to see him bumped off by assassins, especially if the latter are Russians.

The Sun, Daily Telegraph and Times are all reporting today that Berezovsky – acting on a tip from Scotland Yard (or MI5) – fled Britain 3 weeks ago, believing that his life was in imminent danger.

The one thing I find very weird about this is that Scotland Yard would advise a potential target of an assassination attempt to leave Britain – why on earth would they do that? Wouldn’t it make more sense to keep him there, under 24-hour watch by MI5, Special Branch and his own security detail?

A bit fishy, no?

Berezovsky’s certainly playing a starring role in the British press these days, however. Whether it’s the man himself, or his friends and colleagues (Litvinenko, Goldfarb, Gordievsky,) it’s the all-BAB show!
