More Imminent Terror Attacks Expected in UK

I've been chatting with Glen Jenvey about the failed London VBIED and the Glasgow attack and he forwards an e-mail from MI5. MI5 has raised the UK's terror alert level to "Critical". According to their website: "This means that an attack is expected imminently and indicates an extremely high level of threat to the UK."

Here is the e-mail from MI5 that was just forwarded to me.

The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) has raised the UK's threat level from international terrorism from Severe to Critical. This means that the threat of a terrorist attack is considered to be imminent.

This decision has been made by JTAC based on the latest intelligence. JTAC, which operates independently of Ministers, brings together all the security and intelligence agencies in order to produce a joint assessment of the threat from international terrorism.

Britain is in our prayers.

PS--I'm not terribly frightened for our British friends. Is it just me, or does this crew of al Qaeda wannabes seem even more dee-dee-dee than usual?
