Would you rather they waited?....until they blew to bits British men, women and children?
The pervasive anti Authority stench on ATS in relation to Anti terrorism is surely worrying to those of us on ATS who believe in the "right to be secure in your own nation."
I congratulate the competent and efficient British Police , for thwarting yet another murderous extremist Islamist gang of thugs.

Lets keep in mind that MAJORITY of arrests in this country for 'terrorism' don't lead to any convictions and most people arrested are let off with no charge. Current stats say that about two thirds are false alarms, but by that time those innocent people have already had their names and faces all over the papers and the population thinks we're under attack.
Only 17% of those arrested under the terrorist act are actually charged with terrorist offenses.
There's an interesting report by the Home Office HERE.
