France is estimated to have 2,000 citizens involved in Syrian and Iraq jihadi networks and a further 3,800 individuals known to domestic intelligence services as “radicalised”, all watched over by just 3,200 intelligence officers.
They should just ask Justin, he’ll take a couple thousand off their hands.
Our own numbers are likely comparable on a per capita basis.
Thanks to our political class the barbarians are already inside the gate.
