Disturbing Manchester Blast Aftermath. Draconian Security Measures

UK police state laws already are some of Europe’s most draconian before Monday’s Manchester blast, including the 2005 Prevention of Terrorism Act, eviscerating longstanding legal protections.

Perhaps tougher legislation is coming. Following an emergency meeting, Prime Minister Theresa May acted as expected – elevating Britain’s threat level from severe to critical.

Claiming another attack “may be imminent” is part of her fear-mongering strategy, an effort to convince Brits they’ll be safer by sacrificing fundamental freedoms.

The opposite is true.

Thousands of UK armed forces personnel are being deployed in key public areas, Britain turned into an armed camp – perhaps permanently.

So-called Operation Temperer came in January 2015, following the Paris Charlie Hebdo and kosher market false flags.

It authorizes deployment of thousands of soldiers to “augment armed police officers engaged in protective security duties” in key UK areas.

Other European countries have similar plans to guard against alleged terror threats, Britain and the continent becoming armed camps, democratic rights disappearing in plain sight.

Incidents like Manchester, Charlie Hebdo, the July 2016 Nice, France false flag ISIS claimed responsibility for, others in Europe, and similar ones in America are used to enforce police state harshness – deception to convince ordinary people to accept what harms their fundamental rights and welfare.

ISIS claiming responsibility for Manchester and similar incidents is part of the deception. Claims without verifiable proof are baseless.

Anyone can claim anything for any reason and make it appear credible when it’s not.

For now, a Manchester police witch hunt is ongoing to round up convenient patsies, possibly connected to suspected “bomber” Salman Abedi.

Perishing in Monday’s blast, he’ll tell no tales, the official account alone reported – no witnesses or others so far available to refute it.

Skepticism is always warranted about government actions that harm the rights and welfare of ordinary people while claiming otherwise.

The Manchester tragedy occurred ahead of Britain’s June 8 snap elections with Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn narrowing Theresa May’s lead.
