I'm glad it's not my holiday this week…

Writing about web page

Well, it seems the anti–terrorist police have done a fantastic job in preventing the plan to explode several plans mid–flight. All respect to them.

I find it slightly odd, however (and this may just be me being cynical) that the terror alert level has been raised to critical after the plans have been foiled. Let us quickly examine what the "Critical" status means:

an attack is expected imminently and indicates an extremely high level of threat to the UK

So, was the plot foiled or not? What attack is expected imminently, if this plot has been stopped? And with this plastered all over the news, you'd have to be a very stupid terrorist indeed to try anything today.

I only wonder how long the alert will stay raised. One thing's for sure, though; anyone travelling through a British airport in the next few days is going to have to leave bags of extra time in order to make it through security. They're hand–searching everyone, for fuck's sake, and God knows how much of a hold it causes when one person has to be hand–searched!

Ho hum, the joys of living in a "free" society…
