Security has been stepped up for this year’s Championships [Image: Getty].

Security may have been stepped up at Wimbledon to deal with any potential threat, but why should our police risk themselves?

The Conservative minority government has shown that it holds our emergency services in contempt, so why should they put their lives on the line if there is an attack on the rich person’s playground that is the Wimbledon tennis championship?

Perhaps Mrs May didn’t consider that, when she was urging her (remaining) MPs through the lobby to maintain pay restrictions.

Perhaps she thought the police would blindly run into danger, no matter how badly they are treated by their paymasters.

Perhaps she doesn’t care if people die, because it will provide an excuse to privatise law enforcement?

Yes, This Writer really does believe she is that evil. She’s a Conservative, after all.

Whatever happens, it seems Wimbledon will be worth watching for the off-court action, as well as the matches. Let us hope our sadistic prime minister does not get the chance to find out what our police will do, if pushed.

A pro-Isis channel on the Telegram instant messaging service has called for a Manchester-style “lone wolf attack” to be carried out at Wimbledon, an intelligence security service has claimed.

In May, the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the Manchester Arena bombing attack, which killed 23 people and injured 250 others.The bomber, Salman Ramadan Abedi, was a 22-year-old British Sunni Muslim who acted largely alone.

An intelligence group has now claimed that a pro-Isis channel has been calling for attackers to target The Wimbledon Championships, which began on Monday and culminate in the men’s final on Sunday 16 July.

SITE Intelligence Group told the International Business Times that they had monitored a map of the venue being distributed on the channel, along with messages calling on fundamentalists to target the tennis tournament.

The channel, called “Lone Mujahid”, also called on attackers to take inspiration from the Manchester attack, and the messages included pictures of the Manchester Arena in the aftermath of the attack on the venue.
