Even after 7/7 a determined, well-trained group of terrorists could attack any British government building. There is no Secret Service; only a few cops with MP5s. Using a rocket launcher, plus a few good terrorists armed with AK-47s, it would easy to attack Downing Street, or the houses of parliament. Whatever the next attack, it won't be on the Tube. Also, with the government buildings so close to each other in London, a 1kt suitcase nuke would be ideal to completely destroy the government.

Even if there was a 'secret service' they wouldn't be able to do anything about a terrorist with a nuke anyway! whats your point? have you any idea how difficult is it to get near downing street? you can't exactly just walk up it, there are armed police guarding the end of the road and a huge gate!

There is also a nuclear bunker directly below it too!

Yes I know. Two armed police, and once they are dead you can use a rocket launcher to blow down the gate.

Bit extreme i think, but i do agree that security is still way too slack.

How many times does the Mirror newspaper need to send someone into Buckingham before anyone learns! Next the daily sport will manage to sneak a page 3 model in to Downing Street with fake papers!

There was an incident in 2004 when Tony Blair got covered in flour during Prime Minister's questions in the House of Commons.

"The attack would have been "incredibly serious" if the dyed flour had been anthrax or ricin."

Securing the Houses of Parliment should be a priority?
Maybe this is evidence of how incompetent our intelligence and ultimately our security really is?
Or perhaps they don't consider the Houses of Parliment to be under threat from the international terrorist organisation known as al-Qaeda with whom we as a coalition of countries are apparently at war with?

The Mirror newspaper sends undercover reporters to serve breakfast to American top brass or tea to the Queen:

The senior Americans staying at the Palace are White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, National Security Adviser Condeleezza Rice and Colin Powell, the US Secretary of State.

After serving them breakfast from 7am, I would have been on standby to attend to their needs throughout the day including providing them tea and biscuits.

I carried food to her apartments, served her gin and Dubonnet - her favourite tipple - and delivered newspapers and private mail to her room.

It is fortunate that al-Qaeda do not possess the training of tabloid newspaper journalists and irate fathers!

Actualy, theere are quite a bit of "security"..
MOD Police, MI5, SO19, SAS, SBS and a host of normal miltiary and civilain security agencies are within hours if not minitues of reacting.

Its almost impossible to stop an act but they have the ability to contain and REACT quite quickly.

I guess the real issue then isn't the security, it would be the actual intellegence. wether or not the country would be able to, lets say, evacuate a place. if they know an attack is about to take place that is half the battle won is it not?!

But who trained (or conditioned) these killers, if there ever were bombers on the trains and not just bombs?

(sorry I forgot to finish)
what an excellent distraction from the G8 Summit. Who remembers what the 'leaders' agreed there?
