Our esteemed Prime Minister announces that our Terror Alert has “risen” from “very low risk” of a terror attack to a “low risk”. He says,

“We are moving up. So it’s as I’ve been saying, we wouldn’t want to overstate the risk, but New Zealand is becoming riskier,”

Perhaps there was a time, not too long ago, when a Terror Alert was necessary – but was not activated.

In October 2007, the good folk of Ruatoki  would have appreciated an alert that a gang of armed gun-men – commonly referred to as the ” Armed Offenders Squad” and “Special Tactics Group” were about to descend on their community and subject them to several days of terror.

It is supreme irony that the only acts of terror in this country, in living memory, were carried out by an ally bombing a ship in one of our harbours, and armed police descending in force on a peaceful village in the Ureweras.
It is not Islamic extremists that worry me as much as our so-called “friends” and our own government and State para-military.

A Terror Alert in such cases should always be set at Maximum Warning: Don’t trust the bastards.
