In the seventies, WE knew all about terrorism.
We had it on a weekly basis.
I liked Dempsey and Makepeace, The Professionals and The Sweeney.
It was that time.
Some things change but the ever present threat of a 'sugar bomb' is one that should, both, chill and shock us 24 hours a day.
Still, the burden of proof appears to have changed over the years.
For example, at 8.50secs in the video :
Harriet Makepeace : They've bought anti-tank weapons, automatic rifles, stun grenades and they've been inspecting gas installations.
Now, we have enough to book them on conspiracy, right now, why don't we do it?
Spikings, the Cowley-esque boss, : Good Morning, Sergeant.
Now, if Glynis Barber couldn't get a collar when they were found 'bang to rights' how the hell does Jacqui expect to do it with a few 'sugar sachets' from 'Greasy Joe's 24/7 Conspiracy Halal Coffee Stall'?
Could it be that, as Mr Murray says, this is a bomb plot with no bomb and no plot?
PS Glynis Barber was a big ride in those days.
