Terrifying news

I'm watching the latest news about the foiled attempt to blow up airliners over the Atlantic. The sheer scale of the plot is terrifying.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that some of the terror suspects were living in High Wycombe, a sleepy commuter town in the county of Buckinghamshire. Miriam and I were there only last weekend, taking our baby out for her first trip to the countryside. It's the last place you'd expect terrorists to be operating from. That's what is so scary about living in Britain. On the face of it, Britain is such a peaceful laid back place, yet there are evidently a lot of people dotted around the country who want to murder thousands of their fellow citizens.
