The fight against terrorism has come to the front door of every British citizen.
It was previously reported that there were around 3,000 known terror scum-bags living in Britain.
Of that number, 500 subjected to active investigations led by MI5.
According to The Times, Whitehall officials have now stated of those 3K there are an additional 20,000 people who’ve been identified as a ‘residual risk’.
Um… that’s a MUCH larger number than previously reported. About seven times more.
One such person of these 23K was Khalid Masood; the jihadist who mowed down people with a car and stabbed a police constable to death outside Westminster. He was among the pool of individuals who authorities knew of, but were not actively surveilling.
Salman Abedi the Manchester arena killer — belonging to a Libyan family with Islamist links — had also been reported to the authorities.
However, he slipped through surveillance due to “limited resources”, just like Masood did.
Via Breitbart: Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter-Terrorism Neil Basu revealed that terror suspects are being arrested “on a near daily basis” in Britain shortly after the Westminster attack – an early hint at the scale of the challenge which Britain faces.
Anthony Glees, the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies director who recently estimated the number of jihadists in Britain at “between 6,000 and 10,000”, described the Whitehall revelations as “horrifying”.
“To have 23,000 potential killers in our midst is horrifying. We should double the size of MI5, as we did in World War Two, and expand the number of intelligence-led police by thousands,” he said.
“We can’t go on as if this wasn’t happening.”
Colonel Richard Kemp, former COBRA committee and Joint Intelligence Committee member, as well as commander of British forces in Helmand, Afghanistan, is calling for drastic measures.

“Every single person who we have intelligence upon, who is known to be involved in terrorism, who is not a UK citizen, and who we cannot prosecute in the courts, we get rid of out this country. We deport them; we send them back to where they came from,” he said.
We do not allow them to roam free on our streets and murder, and maim, and disfigure our children in the way they did in Manchester recently.”
It’s time British officials put aside their politically correct politics and start kicking ass in protecting their nation.
If the Manchester arena bombing wasn’t a loud enough wakeup call, how many more children will have to be blown up before the right action is taken?
