Yawn... (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/terrorism-in-the-uk/7056833/Terrorist-attack-is-highly-likely-security-services-say.html)


"Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary said: “I should stress that there is no intelligence to suggest than an attack is imminent. "


So is it just a gut feeling they have?

or

A warm up for removal of even more of our liberties

or

A smokescreen to divert attention from the Chilcot inquiry

or

Just another day on Airstrip One?

Very good point, given Blair is giving evidence next week.

MI5 and Special Branch need some overtime, so if you have recently been "studying" in Pakistan you'd be wise to order a new front door now.

Raised so it can be lowered again just before the election. Nothing would have happened thus showing how good the nuLieBore government are at preventing terrorism. :rolleyes:

The other part of the problem is that an awful lot of Pakistanis have actually come over here to "study" quite recently.
Quite remarkable when you consider how poor they are supposed to be and yet they want to come to a country with some of the highest living costs in the world (assuming you are not reliant on government handouts that is).
I wonder why.

Well, I assume it is related to the 'underpant bomber' with the singed nads, and also the afghan conference next week...

Prior to this spin-mad government, the threat level used to be a secret (or Restricted, anyway). It had to be that way for obvious reasons.

Now it is just a media management tool.

I thought it meant that the current status of all the millions on terrorists hiding under our beds, in our cupboards, and in our attics, had gone from "Slightly Narked Off" to "Severely Irritated".

The next and final stage is apparently "Critically Peeved", and that's when the real moaning and whining starts.

The intelligence services are considering introducing sweeping new powers, such as "Instant Detentions" and "Being Sent Home With A Note".

If this doesn't work, then the only final sanction is to "See the Headmaster for Bum Rubs".

Oh my, the papers this morning are full of stories of Burka Bombers.

They're women who dress differently.

They're chosen by their masters because they look just like you or me.

They're trained in remote exotic locations.
