Terrorism level: Critical

Heres what this means


The current terrorism threat level is Critical

The threat level is Critical. An explanation of what this means in terms of a terrorist attack is set out below.
What are threat levels?

A new system has been created to keep the public informed about the level of threat to the UK from terrorism.

The system also helps the police and other law enforcement agencies determine how they should respond to, and prepare for a terrorist incident.

The threat levels are:

*
critical - an attack is expected imminently
*
severe - an attack is highly likely
*
substantial - an attack is a strong possibility
*
moderate - an attack is possible but not likely
*
low - an attack is unlikely

What should the public do?

You should always remain alert to the danger of terrorism and report any suspicious behaviour:

*
if you have information about terrorist activities contact the anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321
*
call 999 if there is an immediate threat to life
*
if you know of a threat to national security email the Security Service.

So - any other conspiracy theorists out there think that the London scares yesterday could have been a set up - in order to force through legislation to further stifle civil liberties??
#2
I don't think it's ever changed from Critical to be honest...

Possibly would mean changing the bulb.

7 days until 7th of the 7th 2007

They say that we can only stay at critical for a matter of days though - I expect it to be that way until at least 7/7...

In a televised statement, Mr Brown thanked the police, the security and emergency services for the "dedicated professionalism" that has been shown in London and Glasgow Airport. "The first duty of the government is the security and safety of all the British people, so it is right to raise the level of security at airports and in crowded places in the light of the heightened threat," he said.

Who is this prat? oh let's look after all the British people, sod the rest of every other nationality who lives in the UK, sod all the visitors who are presently in the UK, let's look after 'the British'.

Wrong choice of word to use Brown, wrong choice :x
#11
Yep, something gives me the feeling that somebody wants to make an impact on the anniversary of 7/7 (meaning apart from what's happened already, I get the feeling that somebody will try something on the day too) :-(

To be honest, when are british people going to be put first?
#13
put first in what? we're all people and no one should be protected over other people, all innocent people deserve to be treated the same no matter where they are from.

There are a lot of non British people on this land that are not money grabbing, trouble makers. The Goverment also have a duty to protect tourists who bring in a lot of money to this Country.

To me being British = Born in Great (or not so great) Britain.
#21

Having a British passport does not give you the right to call yourself British, as that report says - Security sources said it was likely at least three of the men, said to be of Pakistani descent, are dead, after belongings were found at the scenes. So does this mean that if they had British passports they were British!!.

Nowadays a passport is a document of convenience.
#24
Well if you was Scottish born but lived in England, Would you then be English?

(working on that reasoning)
#25
either way when its innocent people there shouldn't be an "us" and "them", we should all be protected.

Yes but to me personally I'm not brittish - I'm scotish but I can see why I'm calssed as british. Anyone living in this country is british anyone with a british pasport is british (therefor alot of over seas people fall into this catagory) and anyone with citizanship (is that what we have here) is british. You don't have to be born in this country to be britsh
#28
How about people who are half english and half american?
They live one foot in England and one in America?

how many generations should you have to trace though, before you can be considered eligable to hold a UK passport?

hope the welsh people dont start saying its about time the welsh people were put first

What is sooo scary about this is that anyone could cause major devastation should they chose to. I mean they can't body search everyone that gets on any form of public transport.

I would like to see what reaction you would get from a Polish person who had just arrived here to work :w00t: I don't think they would like to be described or classed as British :giggle: :giggle:

im born in Wales live in Wales and im Welsh not British

'british' isn't really a nationality...English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish are though...However collectively we are British

True enough I suppose.

I always thought to be classed as British were British born.

I wouldn't expect to go over to France for example and be classed as French because i'd lived there or held a french passport etc though.

Well if they really wanted to cause some damage, they could easily get into a football stadium if they had things strapped to them like the guy had when he arrived in the hospital.

At anfield bags are looked into but no ones rubbed down or anything so you could have anything on you.

They've just found out that the device found on that bloke WAS asuicide belt
