The British Government fails to use the Interpol database of terror suspects and fails to check people on the way into the UK.
Interpol said that the Terror Watch database has details of individuals on stop lists and over 9 million stolen passports, and is accessed extensively (in the hundreds of thousands per year) by other member states, Switzerland and even the Caribbean states, but Britain had only accessed it 50 times in the past year.
Britain's Home Office said that it was 'too complicated'.
It would appear that Britain is happier to spend billions on spying on its own people rather than catching terrorists on the way into the UK.
But according to the UK government, who provide Interpol with terror related statistics, there is virtually zero terrorism in the UK. Unlike the rest of Europe, where domestic rather than Jihadist terror is the prime cause of security action, the figures for the UK are very low as shown in the Interpol TE-SAT 2007 EU Terrorism Situation and Trend report published in April this year.
The Europe wide Terror Watchlist shows 45 individuals and 48 groups, adding 9 more individuals and 2 groups from its Dec06 update.
But we are again being bombarded with the 'politics of fear' in the press, with the new Security Minister telling us that over 200 terror cells are operating in the UK, and that it will take up to 15 years to clear Britain of its terror backlog. The press which runs these stories are being fed unattributed clap trap. If it was real then 'senior detectives' would be replaced by Supt An.Other.
I dont believe a word in any terror scare story that does not have names in it. If its unattributed, then its likely to be unreal. Remember police advice, 'If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is'.
So what's the big political game then.
Britain is effectively telling the rest of the world that there really isn't such a big terror threat as they would have us believe, either, because the UK has always been able to cope, its government sponsored terrorism (and there are lots of arguments to back that theory), or the Security Services are crap, but whichever it is, the government are playing fear politics with the public.
If there really are 200 terror cells in the UK, where are the raids, the arrests, the court cases?
The UK government has consistently for the past 10 years embarked upon a policy of fear, to cower its populace into accepting new legislation, draconian legislation and to meekly accept spying upon each other as the norm in life. (that disgusting policy* was reinforced by Admiral Sir Alan West, the new Security Minister this morning), yet the police in the field are ignoring all this draconian legislation available to them as the first man to be charged in the London and Glasgow 'terror' fiasco has been charged under the 1883 Explosive Substances Act.
If the government was really serious about terrorism we would have reasonably expected a coordinated and consistent armed police presence at Glasgow airport, with the security level set at Severe as it is. It would appear that the security level is there only to scare the public, not for the government to act upon.
The policy and the legislation is in place for one reason and one reason only. To subdue and shackle the people of the UK. It's not to catch terrorists, because as the police have proven over and over we already had and have enough laws to deal with that. Very simply its aim is to create the Socialist Authoritarian state.
The creation of the Athoritarian state is well under way, 10 years of reforms, reforms of the police not to improve policing but to increase political control, the same with NHS, Schools, Higher Education, Immigration, Civil Service have all been 'reformed' to add that political indoctrination and control, whilst actually destroying much of their efficiencies.
Then we have 26000 new laws in case we rebel, the creation of the ability of the state to spy on our phones, emails, text messages and our homes, powers to enter our homes and businesses and camera tracking us on our roads. 3000 new criminal offences ensure that we don't push back too hard, taking summary punishment out of judicial control through Asbo's, and turning our courts into a business.
The only concession so far is Brown telling us we 'might' be allowed back into Parliament Square.
Interpol is right. Britain is not checking for terrorists. Britain's government knows that there really are so very few real terrorists out there, what's the point in checking, but so long as the public never find out, we can carry on with this policy of keeping terrorist activity at the top of the press agenda, and pass ever more draconian laws without much dissent.
How many of our politicians are just plain stupid and dumb or are complicit, is still a matter of conjecture, but unless we can stop them, the words of Enoch Powell will ring more true in Britain than anything that has gone before.
We are sick of the lies, we are sick of the spin, and we don't trust this Goverment with our Country.

spying on neighbours is being promoted across this land, like the creeping
sickness of the Gestapo, KGB or the Stasi.
