B's response at Moon of Alabama, when the news broke yesterday, was a tad acerbic:
It seems that the 'Novichok' fairy-tale the British government plays to us provides for a happy ending - the astonishing and mysterious resurrection of the victims of a "military grade" "five to eight times more deadly than VX gas" "nerve agent" "of a type developed by" Hollywood.
Only yesterday the Skripals chances to survive were claimed to be 1 out of 99. Nerve agents are deadly weapons. A dose of ten milligram of the U.S. developed VX nerve agent will kill 50% of those exposed to it. The 'Novichok' agents are said to be several times more deadly than VX.
[...]After getting all that out of his system he settled into a review of claims the Skripals were poisoned by a Novichok toxin -- and the debunking of the claims by some in a position to know.
