  • Blunkett and Olympis security...

    Did he mention the bit about being a director of one of the firms who stand to profit hugely from security technology?
    The government has plundered the Lottery for a project which will only benefit London, and is already wildly over budget. Mister B seems to want us to throw even more public money his way to fight a totally unquantifiable threat. The essence of terrorism is that you cannot protect against it by any normal means, and if the cyber security is effective, the criminals will simply turn elsewhere, somewhere easier.
