Heathrow threat real says Blunkett

Real threat my ass! How exactly are tanks and conspicuous naval aircraft going to help? Are the terrorists going to arrive in a lightly armored vehicle marked "TERRORIST" after first broadcasting their intentions so we can intercept them?

I'm disgusted by what I see as a transparent propaganda trick. "I flew through Heathrow" people will say "and there were TANKS outside. All this talk about Iraq being dangerous must be for something real". I hope they overdo it enough for the better newspapers to take the piss...

Gah!
