You can watch it with your own eyes now. When dictator Blair and his henchmen wish to pass new legislation regarding taking away our rights and their so called war on terror, with our blind consent then we will see the level threat rise to “substantial” then when they have pasted their new piece of legislation it will drop to “Moderate”. 😉 ================================== ================================== Terror warnings to be made public A system that will warn the public about the threat of a terrorist attack is to be announced by the government. For the first time, details of current threat levels will be published on the websites of the Home Office and MI5. The warning system, to be revealed by Home Secretary John Reid, will form part of the government’s counter-terrorist strategy. It will also include information on what kind of actions people should take in response to the threat. The system will show five different threat levels, but they will not be colour coded as they are in the US – where alerts range from green to red. It will also simplify the current seven-tier system, which is not published in the public domain. THREAT LEVELS Negligible Low Moderate Substantial Severe general Severe defined Critical The announcement comes after the cross-party Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) called for a more transparent warning system in the UK in a report on the 7 July London bombings. The committee highlighted that the threat level had been reduced from “severe general” to “substantial” prior to the London attacks and said the current system had provided “inappropriate reassurance” to the public in the absence of intelligence about a plot. The report, published in May, said the system should be changed to recognise the limitations of intelligence gathering and “that attacks may be at the planning stage without being detected”. A Home Office spokesman said the aim of the new system was “to bring clarity to both security practitioners and the general public without causing alarm.” The announcement will coincide with two separate government documents on terrorism. A wide-ranging summary of the government’s long-term strategy, code-named Contest will be published by Mr Reid, which aims to prevent terrorism and prepare for their event. The Department for Communities and Local Government will also publish a document on preventing extremism. Story from BBC NEWS:news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr… Published: 2006/07/10 08:27:30 GMT© BBC MMVI avast!
