Which is precisely why they've raised the terrorist threat level, despite there being not a fucking shred of intelligence to suggest there's actually an increased threat. Even the fucking Beeb have admitted as much:
The UK terror threat level is being raised from "substantial" to "severe", Home Secretary Alan Johnson has said.
Mr Johnson stressed there was no intelligence to suggest a terrorist attack was imminent.
So why the fuck have you raised it then, you statist moron?
The decision to raise the threat level was made by the UK's Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC).
Mr Johnson said JTAC kept the threat level under constant review, making its judgments based on a broad range of factors, including the intent and capabilities of international terrorist groups in the UK and overseas.
But the best bit is yet to come:
He said: "We still face a real and serious threat to the UK from international terrorism, so I would urge the public to remain vigilant and carry on reporting suspicious events to the appropriate authorities and to support the police and security services in their continuing efforts to discover, track and disrupt terrorist activity."
You couldn't make this shit up.
The thing that I'm struggling with is who in the general public gives a flying fuck what the terror level means? If you ask any person in the street what it even was, and how it affected their lives, you'd find it's completely and utterly irrelevant in everyone's lives. This is for good reason - for example, what are we supposed to do if it goes up a level? There's nothing you can do, so what the fuck is the point in it? Are we not supposed to leave our houses if the level reaches critical?
The entire system makes a mockery of the Security Services, frankly. Especially when cunts like Alan Johnson use it to political advantage to try and quash dissent.
