BREAKING NEWS - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44719639

Two Britons - a man and woman - have again been found poisoned by a novichok variant nerve agent.  

This news has been announced by UK police 4 months to the day ex-Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia were poisoned by the same nerve agent (4th March).  Even more curious is the fact that the latest incident occurred within 10km of where the Skripals were poisoned.  Furthermore, the Ministry of Defence laboratory Porton Down lies between the towns of Amesbury (where the latest incident has occurred) and Salisbury (where the Skripals were poisoned).

Back in March, the UK Government was certain that Russia was behind the nerve agent attack, even convincing many NATO and EU nations that Russia was responsible.  This then led to the largest expelling of Russian diplomats since the Cold War.

 

What are your thoughts?  Is it the Russian state?  Is it another state who has the capability to create novichoks?  Or could it even be a rogue person, perhaps even a scientist from Porton Down?

Dawn Sturgess, one of the pair poisoned by a novichok group nerve agent has sadly passed away.  This is the first incidence of a death in the whole saga with the nerve agent's use in the United Kingdom and sadly proves wrong many who believed the threat of the nerve agent to be overstated.

Scotland Yard will now be opening up a murder investigation.  Let us all hope we finally get some answers to prevent any more injuries or deaths.
