Now this really ****es me off.

So they think they are closing in on the bomber's network and have almost identified and rounded them all up and as a result the soldiers will be taken off the streets.

Yet in another report yesterday it stated that there are 23,000 dangerous individuals associated with extremist/jihadist views currently aware to security services in the UK > https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/h...ists-3zvn58mhq

How is a handful of people who have been arrested in this current most recent attack enough for the security to be reduced when such a massive threat still actually exists?

This government really seems to treat security as a ****ing joke - it is reactionary and an afterthought rather than being trying to be pre-emptive.

If the terror threat stays at 'critical' for too long, then that becomes counterproductive, as police resources are stretched too far, while officers themselves have their leave cancelled, and so become exhausted and unable to do their jobs properly.

The 'critical' level is only ever supposed to be in place for a few days at a time. 'Severe' still means that an attack is considered "highly likely", and the investigation into the Manchester attack (and the March attack in Westminster) still continues at a rapid pace.
