Brits continue to cower in the face of terrorism

[UK] Police have been told to remove their names from the electoral register, it was claimed today.

The alleged guidance from the Metropolitan Police in London comes as security was dramatically stepped up for officers and the Jewish community in Britain amid fears of a terror attack.

Intelligence chiefs are worried that Islamist fanatics could try to copy the atrocities in France earlier this month that cost 17 lives. Four Jewish people and three police officers were among the dead.

Fears of similar carnage in the UK intensified on Thursday after commandos in Belgium killed Islamic State fanatics who wanted to behead a policeman or a judge.

The plot held chilling echoes of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby outside his barracks in Woolwich, south-east London, in May 2013.

The guidance to Met officers was reported by The Sunday Times, which also claimed that an additional 800 counter-terrorism police could be deployed on Britain’s streets.

In addition, the newspaper said Scotland Yard was in talks with the Home Office about extra funding to fight the increased threat to Britain.

The Met would not comment on whether police had been told to remove their names from the electoral register when contacted by MailOnline tonight.

However, a spokesman said earlier today: ‘We do not discuss the details of our security response.

‘But actions taken already include security advice to officers and staff; measures around police buildings; changing risk assessments that affect how we deploy to certain incidents; (and) bolstering levels of specialist support, including firearms officers.

By the time you have to change the way you dress, hide where you live and carry more firearms and protective gear on the job because your fellow countrymen want to kill you, it’s a civil war in all but name.

Yet it amazes me how these countries react to the threats while at the same time saying it has nothing to do with Islam, it has nothing to do with ISIS, and they are just trying to get a handle on some lone wolf gunmen that may be planning to do something.

When will the denial stop?   When will Britain stand up and deal with the cancer that’s grown within?

When will police and armed forces be able to wear their uniforms with pride, and not have to hide where they live while living in fear of people coming to their home to kill their families?
