From the Telegraph:

Now, there's obviously a couple of other incidents that should be in the frame as well - but there also seems to be a distressing ability on the part of British police to discover Vast Terrorist Plots which later turn out to be nothing of the sort - usually after people have been shot. It's no wonder, then, that people are deeply suspicious of the current panic, even though evidence now seems to be turning up.


Good cartoon, except that it lays the blame with the police, which not where the ultimate blame should lay.

I'm not quite sure what your point is I/S, given that you fail to acknowledge a very important point about the terrorist plot use phrases like:

"usually after people have been shot".

That implies the police go around shooting people willy nilly for no good reason. And usually. Often.
All the time. Well, once.

Would it not be fair to say police are "usually stabbed"? After all, in the plot that never was, one policeman was stabbed to death and three others were wounded (stabbed, broken bones).

Not bad for a plot that never was.
