I bet they weren't expecting that.

Novichok on a discarded fag end.

As mysterious as the Castro exploding cigar plot....

I always take, the wild speculation of “Craig” aged 38 from Wiltshire at face value over the experts who have said Novichok could not have survived in the air since the initial incident.

Well I shall certainly be more careful in future, I intend to save up for a new packet from a local shop.

* Novichok could not have survived in the air*

It wasn't in the air

"In the air" - it would have been clearer if I had said "open to the air".

Experts have said to have become inflected from the same source as before that source would almost certainly have had to have been in a sealed container.

Cutious then, will we ever be told what is going on or are there reasons for not telling us.

  lotvic 13:51 08 Jul 2018

'They' can't tell us what they do not yet know; I think that would explain why they are not telling us.

Head of Counter Terrorism has said this morning “"This means they must have got a high dose, and our hypothesis is that they must have handled a container that we are now seeking."

A bit pedantic, but clearly in the Skripal's case it was attempted murder. In the case of this unfortunate lady , there was no intent, so maybe manslaughter by gross negligence is more appropriate?

Prosecute with the HSE. Incorrect disposal of Hazardous Substances. It should have gone in the Blue Bin!
