DGP - do you really believe we are more at risk from terrorists? That is not meant as a rude question, just an honest one. Personally, I have not seen or heard any sign of terrorist activity for quite some time, only the garbage churned out by politicians about a 'global war on terror', I believe there is a massive amount of propoganda all helping to justify some wrong decisions - I recon they are just keeping us on our toes so we believe we are at risk.
Yes, I do believe that we are at more risk.
The threat from a sophisticated terrorist network is probably less. However, I believe that the extremist Muslim community feels more aggrieved with the UK than it did before.
I doubt, at least I hope, that a terrorist can no longer hijack a plane and crash it into Westminster. But it is not difficult for an unsophisticated to become a suicide bomber with a crude device.
It is an inevitability that we will be the target of an attack. Although the loss of life and property will be minimal, the threat of terror it will create will be significant.
