Any terrorist intelligent enough to mount an operation that is a real threat is also smart enough not to try it in a city where the security forces look like the love children of Sgt Henno and Judge Dredd. On steroids.
Few things would give me greater pleasure than watching Call Me Dave and the rest of the so-called VIP's being slaughtered on live TV by the Taliban Synchronized Suicide Team, but it's never going to happen. London will be the safest city on earth. Everywhere else will be as wide open as an Essex girl's legs on a Friday night. And not just for terrorists: violent crime will go through the roof, since the vast majority of firearms and public order trained coppers in the UK will be called up for Mutual Aid by the Met.
And there will be riots. In spite of all the excuses, the sad and simple truth is that the police lacked the intelligence, numbers and, in all too many cases, the intestinal fortitude to deal with the rioters. And the untermenschen are well aware of this. With the vast majority of knuckle-draggers enjoying a holiday in the Smoke, it will open season in every other major city.Democracy is not for the people.

The only way it will work is in a last ditch calculation: "tens of thousands of Londoners are worth a lot less than a stadiumful of VIPs and athletes". Other than that, it is useless.
If it's anything bigger than a manpad, they will probably need temporary planning permission!

The RSM and various other NCO's seemed very agitated.
maybe they should look into counselling?

(Though even for once my lid-bashing wasn't going to come out, as I think it is either going to be boring or a disaster).
We should have let Paris have it.
