Following on from the Parsons Green tube attack in London yesterday, Theresa May in her marvellous reactionary efforts has raised Britains terrorism threat to the highest possible level to critical. This clearly means the security services are out of their depth dealing with these seemingly random attacks. UKIP’s Peter Whittle said ‘my fear is that these things are becoming the new normal, we are becoming acclimatised to them … this is simply intolerable and unacceptable’.
A terror threat level of critical means that there is likely to be an imminent terrorist attack. Surely Theresa May’s government can now accept that we need more investment in our police, armed forces and security services.
