RUSI Newsbrief, 1 Sep 2006

With no immediate way to reverse this process, the UK has a long struggle on its hands in which the police, security services and political government must act coherently and intelligently to address. Finding effective ways to mitigate the short-term risk, whilst not endangering the long-term solution, should be an over-arching concern in dealing with this threat from within.
