Homebrew chemical terror bombs, hype or horror?

The Register has an interesting article in the wake of the recent security scare in London, where the police deployed 250 officers in the search for what we are told is some sort of chemical weapon. Like the incident where they murdered the Brazilian civilian, I think this will turn out to be another bungled operation where no criminal activity will be found.

According to the article, the production and delivery of chemical weapons is much more problematic than generally thought. Back-yard chemists might be able to brew up  speed and such, but checmical agents meant to kill others can very easily injure or kill the chemist instead.
