Uk Terror Threat " Is Growing "


news.bbc.co.uk

'Growing threat'

Ms Smith said: "We now face a threat level that is severe. It's not getting any less, it's actually growing.

"There are 2,000 individuals they are monitoring. There are 200 networks. There are 30 active plots.

"That has increased over the past two years. Since the beginning of 2007, 57 people have been convicted on terrorist plots.

"Nearly half of those pleaded guilty so this is not some figment of the imagination. It is a real risk and a real issue we need to respond to.

"We can't wait for an attack to succeed and then rush in new powers. We've got to stay ahead."

i notice the mention of " new powers". i wonder what these new powers could be??

now im not sure if this article on the bbc news site is fear mongering again.

i myself belive that things like anti terror laws do not solve the problem, there a just like taking paracetomol to ease the pain of toothache but once the paracetomol wears off then the pain is back. in other words we have to look to the root problem ( which i dont know what that is ) instead of delaying symptoms as it were.

again your input is truly appreciated guys

The word "Powers" should speak for itself.
This woman is a psychopath who thinks she is God.

Makes you wonder.

They introduce more surveillance in all areas of life and surprise the "threat" level increases. More British Broadcasting Crap warping the truth.

Im not buying any of this BS anymore. Not that I was stupid enough to in the first place mind you.


The UK government is absolutely full of wind and as far as threats to citizens are, i think you can guess who I find more threatening.

is actually PTB speak for ....."We cant keep doing fake terrorist attacks as the people are a wake up to it. We need to just pass the laws instead of all the fakery before hand".........

This kind of fear mongering will only lead to oppressing the people. And you know what happens then-then you get homegrown terrorist.

We have to translate this report:

'Growing threat' : Increasing anger towards government tyranny

Ms Smith (piece of garbage) said : "We now face a threat level that is severe. It's not getting any less, it's actually growing. (The people can't take it anymore, they are tired of our tyranny, the anger is growing)

"There are 2,000 individuals they are monitoring. There are 200 networks. There are 30 active plots. (There are 2.000 freedom fighters. There are 200 freedom groups. There are 30 protests planned.)

"That has increased over the past two years. Since the beginning of 2007, 57 people have been convicted on terrorist plots. (Freedom-loving increased over the past two year. Since 2007, 57 people have been framed for terrorism.)

"Nearly half of those pleaded guilty so this is not some figment of the imagination. It is a real risk and a real issue we need to respond to. (Nearly half pleaded guilty after we tortured or threaten them or their families. It's a fake risk that we need to continue to propagandize.)

"We can't wait for an attack to succeed and then rush in new powers. We've got to stay ahead." (No translation needed, they can't wait for an attack to suceed and then rush in new powers. We've got to stage attacks ourselves before freedom fighters get us.)

Seriously scum in the british government, WE'RE GONNA EXPOSE YOU.

We know you're full of it Brown and Jacqui. You're terrorists. We know 7/7 was an inside job. We know you run most of the IRA. We know you lied about Iraq. You're the TERRORISTS.

Its crazy when you look at it for what it is though.

The economy is in ruins because the government borrows too much money. Solution = borrow more money

Terrorists want to take our freedom.
Solution = restrict liberties

Terrorists attack the UK
Solution = attack iraq

Look at these small points reversed and see the coincidences.

Dont get me wrong here, if we were getting missiles thrown at this country every single day that might justify all this bollocks they are putting into place but as things are right now I think they fear civil unrest more than anything else and they will abuse laws meant for other reasons to restrain civilians.

When you start to lose your job, your home and your worldly possessions that is when most people begin to wonder who is doing this and why. When facts stare in the face it appears as coincidence these days.

This article just takes the complete biscuit out of the situation

Did you know that this country has its own form of constitution as well?

This woman is dangerous, a typical politician who never gives a straight answer to anything. She sticks to her script.

The reporter asks this woman multiple times to explain what the goverments definition is of an extremist. She never gives him an answer!!!

By the sound of it anybody who doesn't agree to the values of the government are now to be labled extremists. Imo It will be these people that are going to be affected by these mystery new powers.


The death throws of a paranoid government, who seem to forget that they work for the people not the other way round.

link to report. What is an extremist??

I couldn't articulate my own feelings towards Big Sister in any other way either. This woman genuinely makes me angry and feel revulsion. I make a fist involuntarily whenever I see her.


hopefully she gets thrown in jail sometime soon.


Sadly, that won't happen. After office she's probably got a nice directorship or consultation gig lined-up with some kind of security firm, possibly IT.

As far as I am aware, anarchists, anti-war demonstrators, smoking ban campaigners, economy campaigners and civil rights demonstrators.

I expect there will be much more groups.

All terrorists?

Have a read of this thread, Cythraul posted it earlier this year, I am still reading into this stuff for myself.

It is an old set of laws but they are certainly not gone by any means. Ignored is more like the case.
