    the terror threat as 'severe' is a way of gaining political capital, a way of saying look at what we're doing while actually doing not very much and gaining publicity for MI5 and MI6 doing their job. During the IRA's mainland bombing campaigns in the 1970s and 1980's (Thatcher getting bombed out of the Brighton Hotel at the Conservative Party Conference) the terror threat was classified as 'severe'. Now a small number of people from the UK join ISIS and declare jihad and the government get in a flap. Must be election year.
