Charles Clarke has announced that he will continue to search for people to expel from Britain if they 'foment, justify or glorify' terrorism. The new powers announced on July 20, will be fully implemented to prevent anyone from entering or remaining in the country who fall under this category of fomenting terror. Clark goes on to mention a third possible attack on London.
The new powers announced on July 20 will give Mr Clarke the right to throw out of Britain or exclude from entering the country any foreign nationals who represent "an indirect threat" because they "foment terrorism" or justify or glorify terrorism by preaching, running websites or publishing material either here or abroad. The two-week consultation period on the "list of unacceptable behaviours" that will trigger such action ends on Friday.

"We are continuing to look at people in this country whose presence here is not conducive to the public good," said Mr Clarke.

"We will be looking at further steps that can be taken to ensure that those who are working against the interests of this country are properly dealt with."

After he emerged from Scotland Yard, the home secretary was asked if there was still a risk of a third attack on London. He said: "We remain worried. The commissioner has been very clear throughout that it would be ridiculous for us to assume that a further act would not take place.

Clarke seems to be preaching his own agenda which is to worry the people of London about another possible attack. Where is the data to back up this alleged attack? He has none. As he says, there is no hard evidence to point in this direction.

In the same article Sir Ian Blair said, "The fact that there's been two attacks makes it more, rather than less, likely that there'll be further attacks. I mean, that's just the logic of all this."

I leave you to interpret that 'logic'.

Hurrah for Clarke!
Would love to see the US and other countries do the same!

You mean slowly eating away at our liberties and using this process of eviction to get rid of undesirables? I think the US and other countries are already going down that path.
