5.12.2009 at about 11:00AM London time, there were unusual security measures taking place at Heathrow Airport. The exact terminal and other details are to be confirmed soon.
a queue of passengers boarding on a Virgin flight were singled out by an armed soldiers, all with machine guns pointing at passengers, not in the ground. The entire queue was surrounded and no one was allowed to leave the queue. One guy wanted to go to toilet and was not allowed to break from the queue.

This created an unpleasant atmosphere amount the passengers. The military stayed there for half an hour at the most, and then just left, leaving passengers alone.

Can you name source?

Also, it would be unlikely that military would have jurisdiction here. Could have been SO 19 if all dressed in black?

No details on the clothing, just lot's of guys with guns cordoned off the queue. Could be SO 19 or who knows. The queue was completely surrounded; no one was allowed to leave. It was a Virgin long distance flight.

Martial law in Britain! Having a laugh. The military does not work like (ahem) Iran.

Martial law will be imposed in the UK very soon, just watch and see. They will probably be one of the first country to have Martial law...

Sadly i think that's true.

Just look at the changes in our freedoms. The suspicions, the nannying, the observing, the fear-mongering, the division, the protests, the counter protests, the riots and the media.

All pointing in one direction.

Brown even said it himself... 'The new world order is here'

-- to add, i can't find any sources yet.

Ok thats pretty interesting and im not sure if something i seen today is related,
I live under the flight path and today there was a passenger plane very low in the sky (I thought it was very odd to be that low) There where 4 police helicopters around it, which again was very odd in itself, I came home to check the news in case there was something going on, But heard nothing about it,

So not sure if what i saw was possibly related, I seen the plane about 3pm, would have landed i would guess about 20 mins from when i see it,

I am waiting for a friend to show up online. I know that plain landed OK, I got a text from a friend.
On the other hand (and to my embarrassment) I got some of the facts wrong, It was Gatwick airport, and it was a bit earlier than 11:00 (closer to 9:00AM). I better say no more because I am sure I'll get it wrong again. I'll wait for a friend to go online and then ask all kinds of questions - type of uniform, how many, for how long, were there any dogs, did they say anything (like be calm we're looking for illegal package of mature cheddar cheese
) and so on.

My friend is no stranger to an armed "security" in airports, but this one was different so that it was worth talking to me about. guns were pointed at passengers all the time and their general behaviour was not like other times, and the numbers of them...

Finally got the updates.

- there were about 6 armed uniforms. Uniforms looked like the police.
- 5 of them had machine guns pointing at the line of passengers of the Virgin flight.
- 1 of them who had no machine gun was walking with a dog sniffing everyone in the queue.
- the queue was before the boarding or control, the first one, registration and check in.
- if dog could not reach backpacks or handbags, passengers were asked to put the stuff on the ground for the dog to sniff. The entire sniffing process was much more thorough than usual.
- no one was allowed to leave or enter. the entire siege lasted about 30 min, after which they just left. No other queues were affected.
- the armed unit blocked the exists in such a way that no one from the queue could escape. One guy was returned back after he tried to leave the queue.
- all of them had also 2 spare magazines for the machine gun, pistols, gas, batons, and all the gear.
- it was around 9AM.

Calm down. Martial law in the UK won't happen because the military won't allow it. This is due to a separation of the military from the state.

Apart from the obvious, the military machine in the UK is small and would not be able to impose martial law.

I think the question is "why would the military impose martial law". I know there are those who think authority is out to get them, but in the case of most advanced democratic nations the military would not act against their own populace because the state and the military just don't work like that.

The population would not accept martial law and the military would not carry out instructions to impose it. I cannot think of any EU nation who would do the same thing against their naeigbour either and I cannot think of any "local breakdown" which would lead to it happening.

Besides, in the UK the army at least owes alliegence to the Queen and not some fly-by-night politician and the Queen still has the theoretical right to dissolve Parliament.

Well, we had Kosovo, Bosnia. UN troops were keeping peace. I think martial law was in place. The Queen has theoretical power but I don’t think she will dare to use it. But you're right, I don't see martial law happening just yet, I still have hope in humanity.

This thread is a great demonstration on why people laugh at conspiracy theorists. From one unsubstantiated report of happenings at Heathrow, we have people saying martial law is about to be enacted in the US. All without any evidence at all.

How do you expect to learn anything when you're filling your minds up with unsupported claims you hear on the internet? You're like old women talking over the garden fence - gossiping about the world. All rumour, no fact.
