Scary times are here this seems extreme to me, troops on the streets? Coming half way through her so far disastrous election campaign. On the 22/06/2017 at 22:33 killing 22 people!
Theresa May said speaking of the Manchester attack:
“I do not want the public to feel unduly alarmed. We have faced a serious terror threat in our country for many years and the operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our security experts judge we face. I ask everybody to be vigilant and to co-operate with and support the police as they go about their important work.
“I want to end by repeating the important message I gave in my statement earlier today. We will take every measure available to us and provide every additional resource we can to the police and the security services as they work to protect the public.
“And while we mourn the victims of last night’s appalling attack, we stand defiant. The spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain is far mightier than the sick plots of depraved terrorists, that is why the terrorists will never win and we will prevail.”
Given that a “further attack may be imminent”, as Theresa May told the nation tonight, the threat level has been raised to critical. That allows military personnel to be deployed on the streets of Britain to free up armed police resources to hunt down suspects.
In this statement Theresa May has said she would give ” additional resource we can to the police and the security services” Meaning more new powers to the police and security services?
The timing of the “ISIS” attack seems pretty strange to me our government was under pressure and this attack has surely made the government stronger.
Troops are now being deployed on British streets to prevent other attacks, we’re in trouble and (USA and UK funded) ISIS is not our only problem.
