As I am caught up in yet another "critical security alert", I can not help wondering about the way that this has been reported.
All these reporters are happy to quote unnamed "security sources".
Are these the same sources whose judgment on Iraq we have so recently learned to question?
If the majority of those who were arrested last week are released as they were after the Forest Gate Police raid, I for one will be extremely critical about the way that this is being handled.
John Reid has been quick to take the credit for the work of the security services. If they are wrong- will he be so quick to take the blame?
I have to fly again tomorrow- what joy!
