This question is primarily for people who live in Britain, anyone can answer but I think someone who lives in England or Scotland would probably know
more about it.
After the airport incident the terror alert was raised to "critical", which is the highest level on the terror alert scale. As most people know, the
US has a color coded system (lame)
We have been to Orange quite a few times but to my knowledge it has never been raised to Red. My question is, how does the highest terror alert level
effect the daily lives of an average citizen in G.B.?
The reason I'm curious is because there are so many rumors about what will happen when our terror alert level is raised to Red.
For example. Civil Rights being severely restricted or abolished all together.-
Martial Law across the country- Citizens being rounded up and placed in FEMA (or some other agency's)
Warrantless phone taps, email and internet tracking, visual surveillance and or vehicle tracking, etc... Of course these are all rumors and
However, since the UK surveillance system seems to be the model that the US follows, I was hoping to get an idea of what may happen here, if raised to
Red by observing what the UK does while they are at their highest level.
