The UK Today – Who’s running this show?: So the Metropolitan Police were ordered to go in. In spite of concerns over the quality of the intelligence. In spite of a spate of raids based on flawed intelligence which have done nothing other than to alienate a segement of society that we should be engaging with. Now, the order to proceed came from the Cabinet Office, so the motivation behind the raid needs to be questioned. Rather than public safety, it would seem that the motivation may well have been political, that the raid must go ahead to prove to the public that they are at risk, thus justifying the Government’s anti-terror measures.
