Zlatan, in answer to all your new responses:One of principles of PI is to determine the facts in attempts to prevent occurance again.
The properties of polonium 210 are well known public knowledge and freely available. No radioactive material is as familiar since it was one of the first two discovered, by the Curies of course in 1898.
It cannot leave the trail that was claimed to blame the Russians, that is undeniable scientific fact. But that was the 12 year old evidence the public inquiry used to assign blame.
The other evidence available to it to help with the conclusions was that polonium 210 was very difficult to obtain. That is total rubbish. I bought my isotopes from the USA where there are commercial suppliers.
So how could anyone get these? Very simply. In the USA it is not illegal supply them but getting a licence is a different matter. In the UK we had the reverse system, licence readily available but isotopes strictly controlled.
Just put the two together as I did, UK home office licence and buy from the USA, that's if you want to be legal. But that incurs Special Branch security checks and annual visits and annual fire brigade visits.
For those who want to stay under cover, just buy the isotopes since the suppliers don't check for any licencing and they come in the post since polonium 210 is completely safe for human external contact. It is only deadly internally once easily prepared.
Now you can be foolish and believe the conclusion of a public inquiry based solely on the false information I've exposed above, or you can at last accept the facts.
The Russians might possibly have killed Litvinenko, but the evidence produced to say that conclusively was entirely false in every tiny detail. That is all the public inquiry had which they accepted in good faith. Wrapping it in thousands of words and numerous pages does not change the facts. As I've shown, anyone could have killed him, including me, since I had the wherewithal and knowledge and was in London at the time. That's also true of anyone in London's newsprint at the time.
