This is really scary.

A. It might not be true

B. If they're not known to the Security Services how do you suppose they would know about them?

C. It might not be true.

This is why we need to secure Calais. We know Isis are coming over by boat, why would they not cross at Calais.

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 20:09:48

I hope its not true Far.

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 20:15:39

anyone.

I don't think the situation has changed- the police and government security are working constantly on this issue. If it is true then yes it is a scary thought, but as previous poster has pointed out, we do not know the real situation. I would avoid reading this sort of journalism for your own sanity (that's what I have to tell myself to do!).

I'm not sure Calais is in any way linked to what SKY are reporting here (that people can be radicalised online, anywhere on the planet including in UK). And that low tech lone wolf attacks are very hard to counter.

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 20:33:35

Well its the main way to get into the Uk undetected.

Griphook Tue 11-Aug-15 20:50:23

I don't think Calais is relevant here, I think what they are trying to say is that terrorists are being recruited without even leaving their homes. Additionally rather than a big planned attack it would be one person acting alone.

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 21:01:53

Of course Calais is relevant. We have people (who could be ISIS getting into our country).

WidowWadman Tue 11-Aug-15 21:08:02

The risk of people being radicalised without ever leaving their bed room let alone the country is IMO much higher than that of terrorists coming in via Calais. The rising xenophobia and islamophobia only exacerbates this.

Griphook Tue 11-Aug-15 21:15:36

But the article that was linked is nothing to do with Calais,
It's about the Internet.
There are more people being radicalised in their bedrooms than on the refugee camps. That's the whole point of the artical.

But as you keep bringing Calais up what would you like 'someone' to do.

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 21:19:24

I would like them to be deported Griphook, they are a threat.

anythingforaquietnight Tue 11-Aug-15 21:22:45

Who do you want deported from where to where, Zero? And by whom?

Timetodrive Tue 11-Aug-15 21:24:48

In the report today they where leaving for breaks under six weeks and slipping into Syria from Turkey. It would be very difficult to watch all tourists.

WidowWadman Tue 11-Aug-15 21:25:28

Why do you assume they're not British nationals?

Griphook Tue 11-Aug-15 21:25:30

Who would you like to be deported?
The economic migrants
The people seeking asylum

How far back from would you like then deported from.

What about home grown potential terriosts? What would you do with them?

Holowiwi Tue 11-Aug-15 21:25:45

Ugh this thread gives me a headache

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 21:35:03

First off they are british in name only.

Secondly, I am not assuming they are foreign.

anythingforaquietnight Tue 11-Aug-15 21:36:20

Who is "THEY?"

Griphook Tue 11-Aug-15 21:38:16

No I think it safe to say that the people in Calais are foreign (that was sarky just in case the tome wasn't heard)

ILoveCokeZero Tue 11-Aug-15 21:38:21

The terrorists.

Griphook Tue 11-Aug-15 21:38:26

Bleakhouse1879 Tue 11-Aug-15 21:41:29

What a waste of a thread

anythingforaquietnight Tue 11-Aug-15 21:42:41

If "THEY" wanted to get into the UK then Calais is the LAST place "they" would try.

Did you know the coastline of the UK including principle islands is 19,491 miles long, all of it unguarded, other than specific crossing points, in particular CALAIS? These terrorist organisations have shit loads of money. If they wanted to get someone in, then buying a boat and crewing it, and landing it somewhere undetected on the 19,000+ miles of unprotected coastline would be a piece of piss.
