I am getting more information from the newspapers of the Midlands about these arrests because one of the men lives in Leicester than I am newspapers local to East London and Essex where the rest of the plotters live. The Barking and Dagenham Post hasn't even mentioned the little matter of the Islamic nature of the plot. From the Express and Star
Counter-terrorism police have been granted more time to quiz three men and a 17-year-old boy arrested over a suspected Islamist terror plot.
Police said no shots were fired during the two armed raids in the capital, but the 27-year-old man was bitten on the foot by a police dog. He was taken to hospital, where he remains being treated for his injuries, the force added. All four suspects were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The other three men are being held in police custody, while officers search a number of addresses.
Scotland Yard said on Friday that it had been granted warrants of further detention for the four men allowing them to be held next week. Officers were still searching four addresses in east and south London, it added. The Met said that a search at an address in Leicestershire was now complete, but another at a second address in the area was ongoing.
Sources told the PA news agency the raids were part of an intelligence-led operation over a suspected Islamist plot. BBC News home affairs correspondent Daniel Sandford said sources indicated the arrests were part of a potentially "significant" counter-terrorism operation and related to a suspected plot in the UK.
A bit off topic but my view of my United Kingdom today:- Today the world is upside down Where black is white and blue is brown Where if you dare to air your thoughts You’ll be escorted through the courts And if you challenge your offence They’ll tell you truth is no defence The only way out of this mess Is for you to acquiesce You have to tell them you agree You don’t believe the things you see You gain release but with a warning Do not oppose the new world dawning The future will be ours they say The old world brought so much dismay Our history must be cast aside Along with it our national pride Guilt is placed upon your head For actions of those long since dead Your homeland is no longer yours For we have opened wide the doors To all and sundry old and young You’ll have to learn to live among New people who don’t share your tongue Our children then they sore abuse But you’ll not hear it on the news You see behaviour at its basest But protest and you are labelled racist Our soldiers forty years before Performed their best to end the war Of terror knocking on our door They braved the hardships of the time But now they face a charge of crime For doing what their masters tasked Yet clemency for the ones once masked The murderers excused and freed And good men charged to fill the need Of lawyers never ending greed Do not refer to a man as he He may prefer to be a she And women too can change their sex The genders now are so complex At one time there was only two Well nowadays there’s quite a few But oddly they have never found Ancient bodies from the ground That showed anything other than This was a woman or this was a man Black lives matter, of course they do But not those of a different hue Say white lives matter and you’ll face That ultimate in man’s disgrace Banishment from your own workplace Mankind, it seems has lost all reason Society today has no adhesion The people and their views are scattered We have forgotten all that mattered Could someone please tell me when The world will turn upright again?
