Paging Boris Johnson and Theresa May when Porton Down's unable to establish where Novichok used to poison Sergei & Yulia Skripal was made. Let's see your "evidence" it's from Russia— Kevin Maguire (@Kevin_Maguire) April 3, 2018
Boris Johnson claimed Porton Down said there was ‘no doubt’ they knew Novichok came from Russia.— George Aylett (@GeorgeAylett) April 3, 2018
Today, Porton Down say they don’t know the precise source.
It’s not Porton Down’s job to find source but to analyse what the substance is.
So Johnson may have lied to the public. pic.twitter.com/amfvDWcTEi
Porton Down CEO Gary Aitkenhead says scientists unable to prove Novichok used to poison Sergei and Yulia Skripal came from Russia or establish its country of origin. A tad embarrassing for @theresa_may? https://t.co/pV5MGIjTk2— Ian Fraser (@Ian_Fraser) April 3, 2018
Have they spoken to Boris Johnson ? he confirmed it within hours. 🤭🤭— dezzafromscarborough (@dezza2542) April 3, 2018
All I've seen is conjecture built on false claims.— Tony Man™ (@MrTonyMan) April 3, 2018
Theresa May should go now.
The Tories have been caught red handed one more—lying, escalating tensions with a nuclear power, only for Porton Down to turn around and say 'we don't know if the #Novichok is Russian'.— Man Like Mike 🌹 (@19MF91) April 3, 2018
Guess who has been vindicated (again)? Jeremy Corbyn. #Skripal
