    The Prime Minister has announced the following actions against Russia in response to the Salisbury incident:

    - The expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats who have been identified as undeclared intelligence officers.

    - Develop proposals for new legislative powers to harden defences against all forms of Hostile State Activity. This will include the addition of a targeted power to detain those suspected of Hostile State Activity at the UK border. This power is currently only permitted in relation to those suspected of terrorism.

    - Table a government amendment to the Sanctions Bill to strengthen powers to impose sanctions in response to the violation of human rights.

    You can read the full statement from the Prime Minister on the Government's website.

    Or you can watch the Prime Minister's statement to the Commons, including the response from the Opposition and questions from MPs, on Parliament TV.

    Why should we have the OHOC on here?

    This is supposed to be an individual members site, that's like we are being propagandized.

    Are you going to come on here to tell us Corbyn is a traitor/anti-patriotic?

    Don't get all flustered, we are being spoon-fed our propaganda about that.

    The House of Commons is different to the Government, though.

    One is inclined to ask why you're taking action against Russia without any proof, bar circumstantial, that it was them. Doesnt that set a rather bad tone for the conduct of international affairs if the government start clubbing countries over te head without knowing anything about the reasons 'why'? i.e. whilst it is a Russian nerve agent there isnt a shred of proof the Russian state did this yet.
