Anyone seeing the sight of the specialists investigating the nerve agent attack in Salisbury totally cocooned from head to toe in the most advanced chemical protective equipment and gas mask style respirators, will have raised an eyebrow or two.

The petition has been created to help rural residents who are constantly being barraged with pesticides and no one in government is doing anything about it. To add another note to this situation the chemical weapon can allegedly be created out of two organophosphates commonly used in UK agriculture. Which two has not been made clear but the report came from someone who is a renowned expert in organphosphates. To add another twist to the story it also appears that there is no proof that the chemical weapon originated from Russia. This statement was made by a spokesperson from Porton Down which is the UK's leading chemical and biological weapons research establishment. In fact a Russian spokesperson suggested the chemical could have come from Porton Down. Oddly enough it is in close proximity to Salisbury.
The chemical weapon could have been made in the UK and easily too as there are no controls on who buys what agrochemical and what they do with it.
Yet the hypocrisy of May when she claims it is unforgivable to kill British people on UK soil is blinding. We have millions of tonnes of toxic chemicals being used every year on UK farms and people have no idea what kind of poison these chemicals become when they are mixed in the natural environment. The cocktail effect has never been investigated. Time it was all banned from our food production system.

For us living in the UK, with brains, know that this is a political smoke screen to make Theresa May look "strong & Stable, and keep her and the Tories in power, . Only Jeremy Corbyn has stood and said, "there needs to be more of an investigation, into just what the "poisoning " is. , yet the media call him unpatriotic ? I have a feeling there will be egg on someones face, - namely T.May PM,
