The UK government has a long history of exposing people in Salisbury to nerve gas, having exposed more than 3,100 of them over four decades to the neuro-toxin.
Now the UK government is accusing Russia of exposing people in Salisbury to nerve gas.
When something goes wrong, simply blame Russia. Nothing suspicious at all about Russian double agents living next to the UK chemical weapons sector.
Even before the revelations about Sergei Skripal, Salisbury had a reputation as a city where old spooks came to live out their days.
