Radiation Nation

The polonium 210 trail is getting more and more poisonous as time goes on. Radiation from the substance has now been found in a dozen locations in London. At least five airplanes, which had direct routes from London to Moscow, were investigated for traces of polonium 210. And now, the Italian connection whom the expired Alexander Litvinenko had met at the sushi restaurant, has fallen ill with the same contamination.
Mario Scaramella, the Italian contact, whom Litvinenko met at the London restaurant, has been admitted to University College Hospital London after tests detected polonium 210 in his body. He is said to be in stable condition.

A hospital spokesperson confirmed in a statement that Scaramella has been in the hospital and added tests have detected polonium 210 in his body, but at a considerably lower level than Litvinenko.
The Brits have some serious grounds to go after the Russians about this as there now appears to be some reports that British scientists have traced the source of the polonium to a Russian nuclear power plant. The next question is, do British authorities now label Putin's government a terrorist organisation? And if not, why not?
