    I reckon if the Police were allowed to say how big the threat is from terrorists in the UK, there would be an outrage and a massive kick back on the Muslim communities of the UK.

    I popped in to see some friends who were having a late Sunday lunch and made the mistake of ordering a pint of bitter. £5 thanks very much! Just down the road in the Royal Oak I got a much better pint for £2.80. I'm not surprised they are raking it in.

    I too am surprised that we don't get more. It's been said loads i'm sure but this does speak volumes of the job our security services do.

    That couple of months in 2017 was crazy. Woke up a lot of mornings expecting to hear something had happened somewhere.

    There must have been some recognition that he was a threat hence the tag and whilst he may have eligible automatically for early release as per the Parole Board statement there must be some review mechanism for what is essentially an ideological motivated offence. It’s unlikely that any ideological motivation would have lessened with 8 years in prison so at the very least there must have been a series of interviews to determine potiential threat level.

    Is it just standard procedure to tag early release violent offenders and no special attention was given to this guy? Would it not make sense to have enhanced monitoring for ideological or politically motivated offenders?

    Hopefully the inquest will shed some light.

    The Royal Oak has gone seriously downhill.

    It is dead the majority of the time.

    Its heyday was 30 years ago. Was a great boozer back then.
