Now what would those on the left be saying if ANY of these plots had actually been carried out, including the huge plot to blow up several airliners over the Atlantic?
Fifteen planned terrorist attacks in Britain have been foiled since the 2005 London bombings, Met chiefs said today.
The revelation came as Met Commissioner Sir Ian Blair warned that the country was being threatened by dangerous extremists who were emerging from “left field” to attempt terrorist attacks.
Sir Ian added that some suspects were moving “very fast” to carry out their plots, forcing police to make pre-emptive arrests to protect the public.
The warning came as Sir Ian and the Met’s most senior anti-terrorism officer, Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick, told a parliamentary committee scrutinising the Government’s counter-terrorism Bill that they backed an extension of the pre-charge detention limit.
