Theresa May has invented a state of emergency for her own advantage

Theresa May announcing her decision to trigger Operation Temperer and put troops on our streets. She must have been hoping that nobody would check the requirements necessary before Temperer can be launched.

The terror attack in Manchester earlier this week was not enough – by itself – to tip the UK into a state of emergency and trigger Operation Temperer, putting troops on our streets, it seems.

We should be grateful to the Random Public Journal blog, and to Skwawkbox for bringing this to my attention: Temperer demands that the UK must be subject to “multiple attacks on different sites” as part of a co-ordinated terrorist assault.

Manchester was – to the best of our knowledge – a “lone wolf” attack. ISIS may have claimed responsibility but ISIS lies – and there is no proof available to support the claim, even though investigators are working night and day to find some.

For the time being, then, we can only come to one conclusion:

Theresa May is exploiting the deaths of innocent people in a cynical act of electioneering – to make herself look like a strong leader.

In fact, she is deceitful.

She is despotic.

And she is dangerous.

Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn has shown true leadership qualities, and she has tried to overtalk him with an invented crisis.

You must consider this, when you vote on June 8.

Vote Labour – for real leadership.

According to the terms and conditions for the implementation of Temperer the country has to be subject to a coordinated terrorist assault; described in Lord Harris’ October 2016 review as consisting of “multiple attacks on different sites.” Monday night’s attack was at a single location and perpetrated by – as far as the evidence at this time shows – a single, or “lone-wolf,” assailant; well within the remit of the police force.

It can’t be said for certain that the Manchester bomber was not acting as part of a larger network. That claim certainly isn’t going to be made here. But what can be said is that to-date no evidence has been found supporting this theory, and already the police have started releasing people they have arrested in relation to their enquiries. Yet soldiers have been called onto the streets in the midst of a general election campaign in which the Prime Minister has both been slipping in the polls and waging a vicious smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.

As Faisal Islam was caught saying, this atrocity has worked well for Mrs May, and the state of emergency she has brought about is the icing on the cake. She wants the soldiers on the street. She needs them on the street, and she is looking as hard as she can for any shred of evidence – no matter how tenuous – that will enable her to keep them there.

    Well upgrading the threat level to critical is not May’s decision or that of any politician, so having been informed of that situation it is unlikely that any P.M. would just sit on their hands and do nothing, she called for a cobra meeting and it was at that meeting it was decided to implement operation Tempura, I would imagine that the Police and intelligence agencies have more available pertinent information than you get from the twatersphere.

      Maybe, but one thing remains absolutely clear: The criteria for triggering Temperer were not met, and have not been met since.
      She faked an emergency for her own benefit.
