Less Fear = Less Loathing in London

Thanks to madgraceflint for the link to this article on some wise comments by the director of public prosecutions. In the words of the article:
Sir Ken warned of the pernicious risk that a "fear-driven and inappropriate" response to the threat could lead Britain to abandon respect for fair trials and the due process of law.

Couldn't have put it better Ken. We don't need proclamations of war, or new legislation. Rather, we need vigilant crime prevention and (again quoting Ken) "a civilising culture of respect for rights amongst and between citizens".
