Extremist Treat to Attack HRH Q E 2, suitable response ?

It would appear, according to today's DT etc, that UK"homeground" extremists are planning to attack HRH during the VJ day celebrations at some stage.

I was wondering what would be the JB general opinion for a response to such an attack?

Personally I have the highest respect for HRH and DoE ,not so keen on the following generations but the 2 at the top have and have always had my complete support.
An attack on them, IMHO, would require a devastating (sunshine?) response on those who had planned and assisted the attackers, I presume those carrying out such attack would be so much pink mist. But then again I have been know to be a little less than liberal in my days!

What are the JB ers thoughts on the prospect?

UFOs quite right, THREAT!

The PIRA were trying to 'plan an attack' on the Royals for decades, and that never amounted to anything much (Mountbatten aside).

They were 'homegrown' and, imo, a touch smarter overall than these nutjobs.

I think she'll be kept pretty safe.

Always - I think you mean "threat"; "treat" might give the wrong impression!

Perhaps the best outcome might be that some of the huggy fluffies will finally realise we are at war with these morons, and come over to our way of thinking - i.e. we should be using "extreme prejudice".

Considering she is no more important that the average person walking down the street (well less so in my opinion) why not just the same response as if it was your average joe?

Some of the "average Joe's" attending the commemoration will probably be survivors of Japanese brutality. Maybe you could go along and explain your feelings to them?

Give the Green light to the SAS to use maximum and lethal terminal force, its the fastest and cheapest option, we don't want any trials, the Judges would possibly let the bastards off, due to some socio-economic problems when they were children living in the sandpit.

Wasn't WW1 started by some fanatics killing a head of state?

It's time to round them all up. Every last one, and send them back to where ever. And blow up the tunnel so it is closed for good.

But said 'random bloke' wasn't supposed to be in the country anyway, knew the police might catch up with him at any time and hence he acted suspiciously.

The victim came from a society where the forces of law and order use summary justice on a regular basis, examples of which can be found online, so it could be argued that he would have been well aware of the consequences of trying to out-run armed policemen.

Perhaps one or other of you could come-up with a value representing acceptable collateral casualties that the Met can then apply before reviewing their ROE?

Tsk, Siti...tsk . Nothing quite like taking reports at face value really now is there....a simple bit of research however and, oh look.

That, and, erm, its in the Sunday press.

Posing the question here on JB however, well that will only ever elicit the standard responses from all the right wing brethren.

Suitable response ?.....ignore the article and the original source.

I'm quite worried by the baying mob wanting swift retribution of the "sunshine" variety, and/or shipping them back to where they came from...
I mean, Luton could use some explosive remodelling, but the fall out might affect the local countryside, and blocking up the accursed tunnel won't have a great effect on travel to/from Dewsbury (although the M1 may have a smoking gap in it)

Yes, but these nut jobs don't give a flying fig. The IRA didn't do suicide bombings with the expectation of a nice afterlife.

Running away from a policeman is not of itself a capital offence in the UK, so unless there are other factors giving the policeman reasonable cause to believe that you are a credible threat to others he should not be shooting you just for running away.

Dan,

It's a pretty fine line to draw...
