Re: Threat Level Increased

and now there talking about it not actually meaning anything (in case the public gets upset and lynches all the muslims)
its just posturing and probably means nothing, that said steer clear of cities and major airports until after the level goes down  Wink

Re: Threat Level Increased

You obviously don't know that threat levels are not altered that often. Before today it was lowered in July 2011 Roll eyes

I know plenty about threat levels like how the previous government artificially manipulated them completely and in furtherance of keeping the public ignorant introduced multiple threat level directives, and would artificially keep them below the required state for proper security then mobilise security services as if they were at condition red despite all alert states being at black .......

Re: Threat Level Increased

the fact your asking for proof clearly indicates you know nothing about document security or indeed security services alert state notification processes

Oh dear just more rubbish from you. Whenever you are asked to substantiate your comments you are unable to do so.

Re: Threat Level Increased

How can they raise this ' threat level ' when they don't have evidence that an attack is imminent?

Re: Threat Level Increased

If they have they won't tell us what it is.
Anyway...not imminent but highly likely.

Re: Threat Level Increased

Most planned attacks we never hear about because our security services are doing a very good job at protecting us. They also need to build a criminal case against 'would be' terrorists, so they do allow them to prepare to quite an advanced point but they are monitored 24/7.
There's been a few documentaries on the airline bottle explosive plots and the extent of surveillance done by the police/security services.

well given that there have already been attacks conducted in mainland Europe it's not much of a stretch to assume the UK is in line for similar treatment

@artmo
given that Tahiti was reintroduced alongside bikini and new levels were introduced for both to downplay what was meant, that all bases stopped enacting amber alerts when preparing for deployment and all sorts of other things in order to prevent public alarm i'd suggest your the ill informed fantasist rather than ascribe any great value to the fact a request for classified information is not forthcoming.....

Stockpile 4 weeks of dried food and several days water. Dig a shelter under your lawn.  The lawnless should prepare a haven under their kitchen table equipped with a copious supply of aluminium foil.

Re: Threat Level Increased

I just got back from Newport Gwent, & they have also raised from substantial to severe
Also all the officials including Obama, are going to be having a meeting @ the Celtic Manor Hotel, (didn't catch the date)
There is allegedly a March going on in Newport, where people have travelled worldwide to be on the March
