Lol @ this recent warning. Because carrying round explosives along with sub-machine guns and Ammo is something you can "casually" do in London without being noticed.

I agree. A fairly major attack could be launched from the Thames with ease, compared to trying to do it from inside the city.
No Cameras, No Nosey Public, no Police.

Let's not forget we do not have police with out of date pistols or rifles like the Mumbai police. We have HIGHLY trained , highly skilled and excellent equipped counter-units who will take out these murderous bastards.
You are aware that the majority (over 90%) of UK police are unarmed right? Only Authorized Firearms Officers are trained and allowed to carry firearms period. Yeah, the Indian Police are also normally unarmed but every officer is qualified in the use of firearms and they do have enough to issue each officer with a pistol or rifle should it be needed.
Good luck waiting for the British Army to come save the day ...

I live in London and this is nothing new. We had decades of terroism in London and the whole of the UK from the IRA. When bombs was going of all over England and London, but the one thing we never done or could have done was wage war against all catholic people or nations. We never even sent one soldier to the Republic of Ireland, why because it would have made 1000s more terrorists and kept the war going for years and years more, and remember the war between the Irish and England lasted for 400 years.
Now a few Muslim Terrorists attack the US and Great Britain and we punish evey 1.5 Billion muslims because of a few. Now this is blatent hypocrosy and and counter productive for the USA and GB.
I hope scotland yard is wrong "as it is on so many occasions" and this does not happen, but if it does we need to keep the moral high ground, because if we don't, then we have already lost everything that is great about our two nations.
One love people.
