    Terror level threat in uk raised to severe!

    Home secretary says threat has increased, but no suggestion a terror attack is imminent

    The threat to the UK from international terrorism was tonight raised from substantial to severe - meaning an attack is "highly likely".
    Home secretary Alan Johnson said although the threat had increased, there was no intelligence to suggest an attack was imminent.
    He said: "The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has today raised the threat to the UK from international terrorism from substantial to severe.
    "This means that a terrorist attack is highly likely, but I should stress that there is no intelligence to suggest than an attack is imminent.
    "JTAC keeps the threat level under constant review and makes its judgments based on a broad range of factors, including the intent and capabilities of international terrorist groups in the UK and overseas."
    What the terror threat levels mean
    Low - an attack is unlikely
    Moderate - an attack is possible, but not likely
    Substantial - an attack is a strong possibility
    Severe - an attack is highly likely
    Critical - an attack is expected imminent
    Home secretary says threat has increased, but no suggestion a terror attack is imminent

    The British are really feeling the pinch in relation to recent terror threats, and have again raised their security level, this time from “Miffed” to “Somewhat Annoyed.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Little Bit Cross.” The British have not been “A Little Bit Cross” since the Blitz in 1940, when tea supplies very nearly ran out. Also, terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the Brits issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was when someone started the Great Fire of London in 1666.

    Oh great, scaremongering, if the swine flu doesn't get us, the terrorists will, unless the snow comes back.

    On a related note, after an attack, why does the status get updated to "Critical - Attack Imminent" If there has just been an attack, then surely there is less chance of another one?

    (As in an attack in the last 24 hours, before people point out the time lapse for the twin tower attack and the multiple London attacks)

    Well, we are going to be attacked again at some point so this isn't a massive surprise.

    Blair goes before the Iraq enquiry next week so maybe that has something to do with it.

    Well how can the government raise the alert to severe without any evidence of an attack?
    They can't just raise it to severe every time Blair talks.

    Its no good now having a "no fly list" Labour changed our immingration laws and have let all the bombers in to the country already !!!. (7/7 bombers , recent bomber in America studying in Britain) It is now British muslims bombing British people thats why BMP are getting more popular .Wait until Turkey join Europe , there is approx 10 million Muslims who have said they will travel to the UK and there is nothing anyone can do about it ,if they challenge the UK state as a christian state (no one now going to church etc ) in a few years we may be known as UK a muslim state!!!

    I find your post pretty offensive.
    It is not muslims who are terrorists.
    It is bad people who are terrorists please don't bring the religion into any of this terrorism. It's just stupid people doing stupid things who call themselves a muslim. When they don't know the true meaning.
