I've not followed the skripal stuff closely (mainly because, honestly, I simply don't care that much). I've no reason to doubt that Russia's behind it all.
But on the other hand, I've no reason to get all Russia-hatey. They've not been gun-toting around the planet for god knows how long killing people mostly for oil.
I'm ambivalent in feelings on both sides of the equation. But it doesn't detract from I'm generally anti-war too. So what if Corbyn hasn't been hammering on denouncing the Russians for a botched assasination attempt? He is probably wrong on that count. But the fact that he was bang-right on Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya (which resulted in ISIS) should count for something.
Our warmongering has done a lot more damage than good recently.
