"If Litvinenko had drunk all the tea he would have been dead very quickly, we are talking a matter of hours. Instead, because it was cold he survived a lot longer.

Litvinenko was a Radical Muslim convert. And the Brits need to take care of their own growing Muslim problems before pointing fingers at others.
