Security Confusion

Basher Davis doesn’t miss a trick. He is now putting the boot in to Lord West, the wild GOAT is clearly unaware of “the line to take” sent out daily by Labour HQ. Lord West always seems to be prone to saying the opposite of what the government wants him to say. It is government policy to frighten the beejesus out of us to justify ID cards, locking you up without trial etc.
The head of MI5 was given the green light to give a speech to the Society of Editors on just this subject, warning us that there are some 2000 Al Qaedas under the beds. Davis contrasts this with what the simple sailor Security Minister said on the weekend –

“On 5 November, the Head of MI5 publicly set out the ‘growth’ in the domestic security threat, saying ‘I don’t think that this problem has yet reached its peak’, explaining that ‘we will not be able to cover every potential threat’. Lord West says we face ‘a steadily declining threat’, claiming that our counter-terrorism defences are ‘ahead of all countries in the world on the protection front’. It is not likely to enhance public confidence when the head of the Security Service and the Security Minister give such inconsistent assessments.”

The government’s inconsistency is everywhere, this odd apology (click to enlarge) from the Home Office to Greg Hands MP bemused Guido. It goes some way to increasing our understanding of how we have 2,000 Al Qaeda terror suspects in the country.

The Home Office is sorry it is taking so long to process Hany Youssef’s application for permanent residence.

Given that MI5 says Hany Youssef has been involved in terrorism “at the highest level”, and that he appears on the list of Al-Qaeda suspects at the UN and the EU, is his application for indefinite leave to remain in Hammersmith that much of a priority?

Guido has a suggestion for this joined-up-government: “Don’t rush”…
