Russia and Britain tit for tat diplomats expulsion

Following the ongoing saga with Russia and the UK in respect of the two people poison in Salisbury, still critically ill in hospital, Russia has expelled 23 British diplomats.

In direct retaliation, the Russian not only expelled 23 of Britain diplomat but they order the British Council closed and ended the agreement to reopen the British Consulate in St Petersburg.

It would have been foolish for the British government to believe that Russia would not have retaliated in kind. If they did not expel British diplomats, they would be giving the impression that they were guilty of poisoning the ex-spy and his daughter on British soil.

I am yet to believe the allegations because I have not seen any concrete proof that would stand up in a court of law, that the Russians are responsible for this heinous act.

The general public, in my opinion, is not stupid, well most of us anyway so that we may have suspicions and some will even believe the British government accusation against Russia. However, speculation against another country is not proof, and we need proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Russia commits this inhumane act. If Britain were, accused of poisoning anyone on Russian soil, we would demand the same level of proof from their government.

The British electorate is not naive to think some countries do not do these acts of what I believe, are terrorism. To continue this diplomatic warpath between the states, both members of the United Nations. Mrs May and her government must show the country and the world proof of why they believe Russia is responsible for these crimes. The fact that the individuals that have been poison one his a Russian ex-spy is not in my opinion concrete proof of guilt.
