UK to launch ‘Contest 3.0’ counterterrorism strategy after spate of attacks

British security experts say eight attacks have been thwarted since Khalid Masood killed five and injured more than 50 in the Westminster Bridge attack. Security Minister Ben Wallace said 21 plots have been foiled since 2013, eight of them since last March.

“Nearly 600 investigative leads are ongoing, covering about 3,000 people and approximately another 20,000 people who we have at some stage had concern about,” he told the Westminster Counterterrorism Conference, hosted by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).

“It is not a spike in the threat, but a shift that we are now facing, and that is something we all have to deal with.”

    “Contest 3.0”

    It sounds like these idiots think they are playing a cricket match.

    • Are there any real British men still alive? The real Battle of Britain has begun.

      Take off the PC BS blinders.

      Close all the mosques.

      Arrest all the mullahs.

      Confiscate all terror related monies.

      This will start the survival process.

        One would have to do something appropriate with Your Leaders and their “Law Enforcement” enablers first. Please do understand that, while they enthusiastically publicize these fun and games, they actually spend far more effort making sure NOBODY touches those who you mention.

    Japan hasn’t even implemented Contest 0.0 yet. They are so behind the times.

    If you have to advertise your un-verifiable successes then you’re not doing a great job.
