    Porton Down does not make nerve agents for deployment by British troops. The Uk is a signatory to the Chemical Weapons Convention and the Biological Weapons Convention and has destroyed all its former chemical weapons installations. Porton Down has been designated for "civilian use", meaning it can only develop antidotes to the use of chemical and biological weapons in case they are used against the population or British troops.

    1ml will be already stockpile, because it is enough to kill 1000 70kg males

    The floors all yours.
    Evidence? Why do I need evidence. Britain has accused Russia and not produced one scintilla of evidence to prove their case.

    It doesn't make them for deployment - but it does make chemical weapons. And more than enough to have made these three people ill. They do make nerve gas officially and legally. Its not a secret.

    A second Russian dissident found death in UK, named Nikolai Grushkov. Police call it unexplained. Happened in Kingston. He was a friend of Boris Berezovsky.
