On the evening of Friday 13th November 2015 a series of coordinated terrorist attacks occurred in Paris and its northern suburb, Saint-Denis, killing 130 people.
Jason McCrossan’s 106.9 SFM Saturday Breakfast show was broadcast the following day and reflected the shock felt in the UK and around the world.
David Videcette is an Ex-Scotland Yard detective, who worked on the anti-terrorism branch of the Met police during the 7 July London bombings in 2005.
He spoke to Jason McCrossan and explains what the UK police and Security Services learned from the 2005 bombings and also says how the cuts to policing could have a detrimental affect on our ability to stop a terrorist attack like that seen in France.
Fox News in America once again show just how cultivated they are when they got a so called “terrorism expert” was giving his perspective on the terror attacks in France.
To be fair -Steven Emerson did come out with a few gems “In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.” There are many reasons not to go to Birmingham…… (some of them still speak funny) – but being over run by Muslim militants – is certainly not one of them.
He also made another gaff when he suggested that “London is patrolled by violent religious police”- if he’d of just left out the word “religious” -most of us who live in London – would probably agree that he had a point!!!
Anyway – here is that interview….
