There are lots of briefings going around at work because of this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-43356769

April 3rd is when it's supposed to happen, and we're supposed to brief staff about the risk without alarming them. Personally, I'm loathe to pay it any attention at all and believe the risk is so minimal as to be non-existent. Furthermore, terrorism, and threats of terrorism thrive on publicity so the less attention paid to this kind of thing the better.

I appreciate that I am contradicting myself by posting about it, but figured the GWD audience is small enough for publicity to have little or no consequence. I decided against posting the story to Facebook though, it's bad enough that the original letter has been widely circulated via social media.

I hope you are right, Red. What a disgusting business.

I had no idea that this was planned.
But now I know about it and I will, indeed, participate and encourage others to as well.
Thanks Red.

So far - thankfully.

I can't help that think if this had been some goon pretending to be part of ISIS sending threatening letters we'd be on a code red high alert, with police cars charging up and down the streets, armed police on the seaside, and countless announcements about unattended luggage in stations across the land.

I'm all in favour of a subdued media response to this kind of thing, but it's not consistently subdued.
