ISIS threat in U.K. high, says new terrorism watchdog

Britian’s new terrorism watchdog says the U.K. is facing a level of terror threat not seen since the IRA bombings of the 1970s.

Max Hill made the comment in his first major interview since taking up the role last Monday.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, he warned ISIS was planning “indiscriminate attacks on innocent civilians” and expressed “enormous concern” at the imminent return of hundreds of British jihadists who have been fighting in Iraq and Syria.

He also warned that British teenagers as young as 14 were being radicalized by extremists online.

    Yes, but what about those drug dealing Mennonites the CBC keeps ranting about.

    I was just about to turn off the radio because I loathe CBC’s national news when I heard this news story at 8 Am. I almost choked on my bran buds.
