    50 - 100 grams?...you think that someone might have noticed that amount of liquid coated on a door handle. Is it even physically possible to apply that amount of liquid onto a door handle?

    At least quarter of a cup of liquid that we were told is 8-10 times more deadly than sarin, and of very high purity, but the Skripals wandered about for a few hours after coming into contact with it.

    This is all getting a bit silly, now.
    The OPCW has corrected it to milligrams, not grams - much more believable.

    Ridiculous that almost every media outlet repeated the error without stopping to check.

    Interesting article from Der Spiegel - it seems that Germany has also admitted to holding some novichok-type agents (You may need the aid of Google Translate).

    So, that's Germany, Sweden, and Czechia (possibly): and, Iranian scientists manufactured it. So much for the idea that 'only the Russians have it!'

    Again, the circumstantial evidence may well point to Russian involvement in the end - that's not the issue. The issue is that those who suggested, from the start, waiting for evidence and building a case were pilloried by politicians and most media sources.

    If this ever goes to a court or tribunal, the British have left so many holes in the evidence in their quest to take 'strong and stable' action that the case would be thrown out, IMO. Even if the Russians were responsible, they have been gifted plausible deniability.
