France : Avoid UK, terror attack "highly likely"

This seems so out of the ordinary that I thought I'd post it up.

Re: France : Avoid UK, terror attack "highly likely"

I'm aware of this, more than aware, lol. I go on the tube (subway?) in London every day during rush hour, so people keep telling me I'm gunna be shot or blown up...

If I do, I do, I can't lead my life in fear or the terrorists win I guess :-S

They've neglected to mentin the warning is for most of Western Europe. Better reason to aviod the UK is the traffic.

Meh, the British endured WW2 bombing from you-all-know-who and still here we are.

I remember the days after the last "terror" attacks on London and people were still using public transport and complaining about the bus and underground delays all the same, lol.

So France is saying don't come to the UK? Funny how I haven't heard anyone in London complaining about that.

Yeah, we're all good. We've had the IRA, the 7/7, the blitz. I tell what's a bigger tragedy, bloody tube strikes. Bloody unions get on my tits...

Always replace the word Terrorist or Taliban or Extremist with "Nancy Boy" makes the headlines more accurate then.

Yep, to be fair it is not as though we aren't used to it.

I hope that the arrests made were the parties involved in this case though.
