The Salisbury poisoning case is fast moving from tragedy to farce. If – when? – Sergei Skripal comes off the critical list, there will be serious questions to be answered – by the Conservative government of the United Kingdom.
And the government isn’t very good at answering questions. I mean, have you seen the presentation we made to other nations, to encourage them to impose sanctions on Russia?
It was a series of slides – and they weren’t very good.
Right. Did anybody see a scrap of actual evidence – showing that Russia was responsible for… well, any of it – in that little lot? I didn’t.
Off-Guardian has these slides, coupled with a commentary that would be hilarious if it wasn’t accurate.
So much for the UK’s answers. The Russians, unfortunately, have lots more questions, and kindly put them on this short video:

Theresa May is reportedly considering her response. If I was Russian, I wouldn’t be holding my breath waiting.
Meanwhile, here in the real world, the public have been asking some serious questions of their own – and making some very pointed observations:

It seems, the very door is in the picture – a uPVC door that would most certainly absorb chemical agents. Last week we were told the nerve agent would take weeks, months or even years to dissipate. So why have we seen at least 2 unprotected coppers standing within metres of it? https://t.co/Y7g9AUsvyp

And how many coppers used that door in the last 3 weeks.
All had gloves on, I doubt. Maybe carrying baby wipes LOL

It's a miracle!
Yulia #Skripal is now alive and eating and talking. She has beaten the world's most deadly nerve agent that should kill in seconds!
All thanks to supreme leader Theresa May who personally licked the chemical off of her body to bring her back to life!#Satire

The "nerve agent" used in Salisbury was – so we were told – deadly
I am delighted that the policeman left hospital some time ago and the ex-spy's daughter is improving rapidly
Will our media please tell us what is going on?
Was branded a traitor Corbyn not right to ask some qus?

>Phew! Good job that "sophisticated deadly nerve agent which can kill millions in a matter of minutes from just a tiny drop" wears off after a bit. >Thank heavens for that, that stuff could be soooooo dangerous in the wrong hands.
>DANGER: Sarcasm 🚨 Alert!!! https://t.co/IEQmAJEJ3x

I wonder if the copper who stood for hours next to a door daubed with Toxic Killer Nerve Agent Gloop and lived to tell the tale… will survive Theresa May's next round of Tory police cuts? pic.twitter.com/k7Gx7G2eRl

Last word must go to Hovellin’ Hermit, below, who hits the nail right on the head:
It takes a microscopic amount of nerve agent to kill.
If the Truth was as deadly, then the amount we have gotten from our govt isn't enough to make a flea feel unwell. https://t.co/Hoh8HuV9A5
