By Graham Vanbergen – The BBC has just reported
that “Britain faces a level of terror threat not seen since the IRA
bombings of the 1970s.” It is by implication predicting successful
terror events in Britain every six months killing dozens and injuring
hundreds in the very near future for decades to come.
The report goes on to say that “Max Hill QC, the new independent reviewer of terrorism laws, told the Sunday Telegraph
that Islamist extremists were targeting UK cities. He credited the
effectiveness of the intelligence services in limiting the level of
threat to Britain. Home Secretary Amber Rudd told ITV’s Peston on Sunday
that defending the UK was her “main priority”. Ms Rudd said she agreed
with Mr Hill’s assessment of the current terror threat facing the UK,
adding that ensuring a country is well-defended is “the most important
job a home secretary does”.

Army (IRA) detonated two bombs during British military ceremonies in
