LIVERPOOL TERROR ALERTS: POLICE FOIL MAJOR BOMB PLOT

From the Liverpool Echo. lots of pictures ans links to more. Probably the most exciting thing ever to happen at and in a University Library. Lots of anonymous officers around the country talking about plan for a big explosion. Poor old Bob Quick. It would have been his hour of glory!

I was just thinking, better to run a critical piece on the police from the Telegraph rather than the Guardian…but it’s not true any more. There’s a Conservative dissatisfaction with the police that needs analysis. There’s a hint towards the bottom.
