After a series of 'disappointments' in the 'foiling wrongdoing' bit, our guardians seem to have gone for the former. Indeed, Chief Plod Lionel Blair today emerged from an oracular trance to declare:
"The prospect that we will need more than 28 days some time in the not too distant future is so real a prospect that Parliament needs to consider it!!!"
Being one of those perfectly reasonable people who sees plots everywhere, he confided:
"The number of the conspiracies, the number of conspirators within those conspiracies and the magnitude of the ambition, in terms of destruction and loss of life, is mounting, has continued to mount year by year!!!"
'only a matter of time!!!'
Watch out terrofascists, I've got plans for you!
