Ter­ror’s real

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

IT has been sev­eral months since the last ter­ror­ist atroc­ity in this coun­try.

That means our spies must be do­ing a ster­ling job at foil­ing the ji­hadis in­tent on de­stroy­ing lives.

Don’t think for a sec­ond, how­ever, that the threat is re­ced­ing.

Our ex­clu­sive story to­day – on a plot to poi­son Princess Kate’s food – is a vi­tal re­minder ter­ror­ists are still out there, look­ing for new ways to wreak dev­as­ta­tion.

So while we pay trib­ute to our in­tel­li­gence and se­cu­rity of­fi­cers for pre­vent­ing re­cent at­tacks, we know they can­not re­lax for a mo­ment. Nei­ther can the pub­lic.

The war on ter­ror­ism is one that will never be con­clu­sively won.

But we must en­sure that we are al­ways win­ning.
