All this faff about national security levels here in the UK… finally one question is answered though, I know it was burning in all your minds:
What the f… is the difference between the levels of “Substantial” and “Severe”??!
Well, the answer I found on the website of the British Library:
Please note that following the Government’s decision to increase the national security level from “Substantial” to “Severe”, the British Library is undertaking a 100% bag search at the entrance to the building.
Aha! Well that makes me feel a lot safer. Thanks.
If this country falls to pieces, it will not be through actions of terrorists – it will be totally self-afflicted. The best trick the terrorists have pulled on us is to make us self-destructive. Cheaper and easier than planting bombs even.
