Jeremy Corbyn faced a backlash over his ‘weaselly words’ on Russian blame for Salisbury today.
The Labour leader was taken to task by Theresa May, Boris Johnson and even his own MPs for equivocating over the nerve agent outrage.
Mr Corbyn was widely criticised earlier this year when he resisted stating that the Russian authorities were behind the poison attack on former spy Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia.
He also previously played down Moscow’s annexation of the Crimea in 2014, suggesting that NATO was to blame for the aggression.
It came as he revealed he had visited the area of Salisbury earlier this year – but critics hit out at him for failing to tell local politicians about the visit.
