Our esteemed Prime Minister announces that our Terror Alert has “risen” from “very low risk” of a terror attack to a “low risk”. (13 Oct)Key states that our risk of a “terror attack” has gone from “unlikely” to “possible but not expected”.

I could add a few more “possible but not expected” terror scenarios;

* Daleks landing at the United Nations, demanding our immediate surrender or face extermination,

* an asteroid smacking into our planet, wiping out 99% of the human race and civilisation,

* Kim Jong-un decides to replace North Korea’s totalitarian state with a 1960s-style hippie free-love commune

* Elvis really is alive and working at a KFC outlet in Huntly.
* Roger Douglas recanting.
When one thinks about it, anything is “possible but not [necessarily]  expected”.
Hardly a sound reason for the Prime Minister to be needlessly creating anxiety with the public? Anyone would think that our government was trying to instill fear  in people so as to justify expanding state power?
