Apparently it is very easy nowadays to find "nerve agents" while walking in the park and sitting on a bench in Wiltshire.
Of course, that is not enough to prove absolutely anything!
In fact, the real key element here is, that the best assassination plot by the SVR, is to have the targets dying outside, on a bench, where the police can easily find the bodies.

If Russia is implicated then expect Russian diplomats to be expelled and relations (which are low anyway) to get worse with the Putin regime.
The EU don't want the UK to leave, the top politicians don't want the UK to leave, the EU is trying to push ever Eastwards by absorbing former Soviet satellite states, so the Russians need to be turned into the new evil boogeymen. It's actually the EU who are the agressors, not Russia in that respect, hence my statement in a former post that the EU are more likely to be behind it than the Russians.
If it was the Russian state, what would be an appropriate response - sanctions?
