So, the UK terror threat level is being raised from “substantial” to “severe”, Home Secretary Alan Johnson has said. The BBC faithfully reports,,,,

The new alert level means a terrorist attack is considered “highly likely”. It had stood at substantial since July. It is in response to the perceived increased threat from international terrorism following the failed Detroit airliner bombing on Christmas Day.

Mmm — “international terrorism”? Mmmmm…Detroit airliner bombing?.

Is there a WORD missing? I think it begins with “I…”

    Islamic terrorism is the only one which currently threatens UK civilians, but as usual the BBC and the government are terrified of using the word.

    The evil this warped religion creates will never be rooted out with these mealy-mouthed euphemisms, and it is highly irresponsible not to warn the public that they should pay particular attention to the activities of Muslims.

    Oh, the benfits of mass immigration from Islamic countries!

    Oh, the wonders of the lack of security risks from burqa wearers!

    WOW check out Newsnight, a full on attack on Fox News from the BBC. FOUR liberals + rat face attacking them. The BBC are really pissed that Barry is so unpopular, blame a small cable news network.


  5. Martin says:

    Really guys the BBC have jumped the shark this time, you must watch this back. I hope someone from Fox News is watching this. It’s all the fault of Fox News. Not a single person from the right, typical BBC bias.

      Yes, the BBC has planned a champagne celebration for Obama and supporters some time ago. But this has turned into apologetics big-time for Obama, by the gabbling Wark in Glasgow in this case with predominantly a rigged BBC ‘Questiontime’ type  panel of mostly the usual suspect ‘mutliculturalists’ talking across each other.

       Why is the BBC’s hero so unpopular? According to the ‘liberal’ panel of mainly Democrat supporters, it’s down to the inherent ‘racism’ of white Americans (not blacks?), and the criticisms of Fox News! What a profound mantra. And Sarah Palin was criticised for breathing! She has only been at Fox a few weeks and apparently she is having a massive effect on Obama’s loss of popularity! I didn’tg know the Democrats were so scared of a women they usually deride.

        It was unbelievable, the BBC thinks nothing of wheeling out left wing tools like Livingturd, Greg Palast and other leftie scum (at our expense). Bonnie Greer is an arsehole, she’s also a liar.

        The White house did try to freeze out Fox but the press pack refused to play ball, the White house were tools trying ot deflet attention from their inability ot convince Americans about their shit healthcare plans.


      • David Preiser (USA) says:

        Sarah Palin hasn’t even done anything with FOX yet except sign an agreement.  I think they had her on once the day after that was announced, but that’s about it.

        Democrats outnumber Republicans in Massachusetts by more than 3-1.  Brown got 1,116,807 votes, almost three times the number of registered Republicans in the state.  This was a state-wide vote, can’t blame the racists in the hinterlands.  What an utter load of nonsense.

        I posted this a couple days ago, but it’s worth repeating here.  Let the people of Massachusetts tell you what happened, rather than the lying, partisan talking heads at the BBC.

        Newsnight has previous disgracing its brand with Palast, too.

        Don’t trust the BBC on US issues.  Ever.  (Except for Katty Kay’s piece on the Tea Party movement, of course.)


  6. John Horne Tooke says:

    “Mr Johnson said JTAC kept the threat level under constant review, making its judgments based on a broad range of factors, including the intent and capabilities of international terrorist groups in the UK and overseas.”

    International terrorist groups in the UK – so how do these terrorist groups get into the UK?  How can we recognise them? So we can tip off the police if we see them.

    The government are a joke – so bound up in so-called Human Rights that they willingly allow terrorists to infect and threaten us and do nothing except raise the “terrorist alert”.

    Has anyone seen any posters in railway stations or bus depots telling us to be alert? No? Thats because to alert the people they would have to have photos of someone looking like a terrorist with a sucide belt strapped to their person. An 85 year old grey haired grandmother armed to the teeth? Just would just not fit.


  7. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Hey, if the Labour Government is going to start calling them “international”, then maybe the BBC will stop calling them “British”.


    • Asuka Langley Soryu says:

      Don’t worry about that. The BBC is a Zen Master when it comes to Doublethink.

    BBC: propaganda for French burqa wearer.

    Superficial (pre-agreed?) questions from BBC’s Hewitt (with no follow-up allowed?)

    In effect, more BBC pro-burqa propaganda:

    John Horne Tooke wrote: International terrorist groups in the UK – so how do these terrorist groups get into the UK? How can we recognise them? 

    That would be racist. We should all learn a lesson from the Fort Hood misunderstanding. It is far far better for multiple deaths of innocents, then the blessings of Diversity to be ever questioned.


  11. DP111 says:

    I think it begins with “I…”DHIMMIS. 

    Muslims are barely 3% of the population, and yet, virtually our entire aviation system is nowin turmoil because of the the predation of Muslims.

    3% of the population, and we have Halah food served in schools and universities.

    3% of the population, and we have councils bending over to Muslim mores.

    For all practical purposes we already are a  dhimmi nation.


  12. George R says:

    Labour’s (and BBC’s) dhimmitude v. security of the British people.

    Apparently Labour’s dhimmi David Miliband is studying Bin Laden’s message? From where?

    -From Islamic TURKEY, where dhimmi David is this week to campaign yet again for the entry of 75 million Turks into the E.U.

    Labour’s message: Labour will ensure the security of the British people via the accelerated Islamisation of the E.U.

    ‘Vote Labour, for national suicide’.

    [Extract from BBC report, “‘Bin Laden tape’ warns Obama of more attacks”]:

    “UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband said he needed to study the [Bin Laden] message but pointed to the importance of the Detroit plot as ‘an attack on the West rather than an attack within the Middle East’.
    “He added: ‘It obviously demonstrates both the dangers that exist, but also the links that can exist between different terrorist groups.’ ”


    Dhimmi David did not add: ‘now is the correct time for me to be in Turkey to campaign for the entry of 75 million Muslim Turks into the E.U.’

    But this is what he is doing.

     And then, in Labour’s General Election campaign he will go to as many mosques in the UK as possible to tell Muslims that they should vote Labour partly because Labour is campaigning to get the umma in Turkey into the E.U.
