Theresa May didn’t quite use those very words today, but that’s the implication of what she did say. Introducing yet another counter-terrorism bill, she said that “the time is right” for enhanced security measures. Because it’s been so long since the last new measures, presumably.
She thinks that we face a terror threat “perhaps greater than it has ever been”, greater than that ever posed by the IRA, and she said that 40 planned terror attacks had been foiled since the 7 July bombings in London in 2005.
Government always lies of course, but let’s take her at her word.
Her words mean that 13 years of incessant war, described by each PM since 2001 as essential for making and keeping Britain safe, was all for nought, a total failure, because the terror threat is greater than ever.
They mean that the numerous counter-terror laws enacted since 2001, specifically to make and keep Britain safe though of course severely curtailing liberties for Britons, are inadequate.
They also mean that Islamic immigration into Britain has been a total catastrophe for Britons. The Home Secretary would never say so of course, because she doesn’t have the sliver of self-respect and honesty neccesary, but this is the inescapable conclusion of her announcement.
She’s happy to work in government led by a PM who thinks natural conservatives are “fruitcakes, loonies and racists”. But if Britain had been governed by fruitcakes loonies and racists for the last few decades, instead of an unbroken succession of governments wholly in thrall to cultural Marxism and mass alien immigration, we wouldn’t be under this apparent great threat, from the very immigrants her type has allowed in to our country.
We don’t need wars and laws. We need an apology from the political establishment to fruitcakes, loonies and racists everywhere.
