No Safe Place

Terrorism is get very close. Yesterday, the police evacuated 119 families from homes in Gloucester while arresting a 24-year-old man and impounding his explosives. Today they have raided four more homes. Large amounts of material have been removed from all the addresses. Gloucester is not very far at all from Hooterville.

Gloucester is convenient for blowing up GCHQ, the Government's intelligence centre, at nearby Cheltenham. It is near the homes of various members of the Royal Family, including the Prince of Wales and the Princess Royal.

A few years ago this would have been the work of the IRA. Everyone who isn't a member of the DUP is glad that the IRA is no longer blowing things up.

It's a good thing Islam is a peaceful religion. I can't imagine what it would be like if it was violent and committed to bring the world into submission to it.
