Following British Prime Minister Theresa May's hysterical charges against Russian Federation today in the House of Commons, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, and his spokesperson, suggested there could be an alternative explanation and raised the issue of the intelligence services' role. "That very strongly is our front bench position".
Ms Griffith told the BBC: "Some of us perhaps speak in different ways, and I perhaps speak in a more plain-speaking way but he has made it very clear. that we are fully supportive of the Government's actions, because clearly we accept that the Prime Minister has said that Russian Federation is responsible".
"There is a history between weapons of mass destruction and intelligence which is problematic, to put it mildly", he told reporters, in reference to the Iraq War. We have two people, the attempted murder of two people, plus a police officer seriously ill and clearly other lives endangers.
Mr Corbyn accused the PM of "scaremongering" over services in Wales before telling the Commons: "When people are dying because of overcrowding and long waits in our hospitals, I think the Prime Minister should get a grip on it and ensure the NHS now has the money it needs to deal with the patient demands".
Splits have emerged between Mr Corbyn and key members of his shadow cabinet who have unequivocably backed Theresa May's handling of the Salisbury poisoning crisis.
"The prime minister makes a compelling case for Kremlin culpability in the Salisbury incident and is right that such a reckless, hostile act by another state requires a robust response", the centre-left Guardian, normally a critic, said in its editorial.
Jeremy Corbyn's Russian Federation problem just got worse.
'This has to be a time where we stand together with the Government, shoulder to shoulder, and with our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, sending a very clear message to Russia, ' Mr Kinnock told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
Pressed on whether another former Soviet state, such as Ukraine, may be the origin of the substance, he replied: "I think the second option Theresa May set out on Monday and again today, that the Russian government had lost control of weapons grade nerve agents which may have been produced during the Soviet period, contains within it a series of different possibilities of who then might have been directly responsible for that".
Asked if he could rule out the possibility of Russian Federation being framed, the spokesman said the evidence pointed "overwhelmingly" to the two options set out by the PM.
He was first seen outside the Crown and Mitre Hotel in the city centre and was joined by leader of Carlisle City Council Colin Glover and Labour's prospective parliamentary candidate Ruth Alcroft.
Mr Corbyn added: "There can and should be the basis for a common political response to this crime".
"That means when chemical weapons are used, we need more than words, but deeds". "Is the Prime Minister really saying that A&E doctors are wrong, NHS managers are wrong, royal colleges are wrong, health unions are wrong, and actually it's only she who knows best about the NHS?"
She also distanced herself from Corbyn's spokesman, saying she "can't speak for Seumas Milne", and that he "has to speak for himself".
More than 30 Labour MPs have signed a motion which "unequivocally" accepts the Russian state's "culpability".
