The threat level to Great Britain from Irish-related terrorism has been raised from moderate to substantial.

Home Secretary Theresa May said it meant an attack was a "strong possibility
Bad news for the UK. It's a pity as the Gardai and PSNI have been made a number of arrests, and the brother of the head of the Real IRA on trial in Lithuania.

I'd imagine this has a lot more to do with jockeying for position ahead of billions being slashed off budgets rather than any real threat.

Really... in what way will the threat from a few paddies have anything to do with health and police cuts? they are asking for 25% cuts in govermental departments no matter how big a threat that will be noticed?

The disso campaign in the North has been an abject failure. MI5 is one, probably two steps ahead. If bombs go off in England it'll be because MI5 lets bombs go off in England.

Don’t think it will ever reach the level of the Provisionals.

These clowns may blow up a couple of fences or trees, but that will be about it.

This is a sinister joke being played on Ireland. Having flogged to death the Muslim fantasy terrorist for long enough, que the mad Paddy again.

This is a sick farce.

The REAL IRA ARE an MI5 creation.

If there IS a terrorist attack in the UK, it will be MI5 run, just like the 7/7 bombings.
How many lies do we have to put up with before people wise up to these ******************************s.

No doubt it will be used as an excuse for the Met scumbags and their ilk to engage once more in the intense hibernophobia of the recent past1

Theres no such thing as Northern Irish, its either Irish or British. Not just that, but the dissident groups behind this terror threat are Irish citizens who are opposed to every form of British rule in Ireland, and want nothing to do with the Northern Ireland state.

LOL.

So there aren't really any violent republicans really pissed off about the GFA and the direction SF/IRA has gone?

There aren't any really pissed off Muslims who want retribution for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?

It is all a figment of our imaginations inserted there by British intelligence.

Irish terror threat? Isn't Northern Ireland part of the UK? Aren't the 'dissident' groups based there? That makes it a domestic or UK terror threat.

Geography ....
The island of Ireland is going to attack the island of Great Britain?

I wonder how different perceptions of Ireland would be if every violent incident during the Troubles had been reported internationally as violence in the UK, rather than as violence in (Northern) Ireland.
