..and this has nothing to do with the hundreds of thousands of ISIS Muslim Terrorists that David Cameron was paid to invite into the UK. That’s merely coincidental..

Counter-Terrorism chiefs have been told to prepare for up to 10 simultaneous attacks amid fears of an Islamic State “spectacular.”
Specialist troops are also training to tackle a dirty bomb laced with radioactive particles, deadly chemicals or biological agents on the crowded streets of the capital.
And the National Crime Agency has been ordered to crack down on firearms to head off the threat posed by British-born jihadis returning from Syria.
Last year’s November 13 attacks in Paris saw a gang kill 130 by carrying out attacks on three separate targets in one evening.
The terrorists, including ISIS veterans who had fought in Syria, split into three groups.
One cell botched its suicide bomb attacks on the Stade de France during the France v Germany football international, another shot up roadside restaurants while a third massacred 89 at a heavy metal concert at the Bataclan venue.
A British minister said: “We used to plan for three simultaneous attacks but Paris has shown that you need to be ready for more than that. We are ready if someone tries with seven, eight, nine, ten.”
Army regiments outside London are already on standby to help the SAS and police cope with a multiple target attack.
The army’s counter-terrorist bomb disposal unit is also creating a team at Didcot barracks, Oxfordshire, to tackle a dirty bomb.
In recent months London has seen at least two major counter-terrorism exercises including the SAS dealing with mock home-made bombs containing the ingredients of weapons of mass destruction
Last November’s Strategic Defence and Security Review said the Armed Forces could deploy up to 10,000 troops in support of police in the event of a Paris attack – though being able to mount an operation on that scale may be a few years away.
Their roles could range from sealing off areas under attack to helping in manhunts.
Late last year David Cameron has said the security services had foiled seven IS plots against the UK in the past 12 months. But the security services are working round the clock to ensure no terrorists get through.
