These people need to get back to work, and quit trying to scare the pee out of people.

They should also understand that they LOST, and that they are little better antediluvian slugs.

Go home, boyos.

Clever of them. That is the kind of campaign that might very well get them a huge amount of positive publicity :)

These guys are nothing more than petty criminals that are unable to extort their filthy lucra since the economy is in the skip.

SNIPPET: “CITY banks yesterday received a stark warning from the City of London Police that the threat of terrorism is “real and ever-present”, after the Real IRA warned it had made banks and their staff a potential target for attack.

The force said that the official terrorist threat level had not been raised because of the Real IRA’s warning, though it reiterated calls for vigilance on the part of the public as “one of the best ways of preventing and detecting crime”.

Its guidelines for City workers include informing the police of anything suspicious, however seemingly insignificant, as well as keeping alert to the threat of postal bombs – including unusual-smelling or heavy packages, or those which are addressed incorrectly, bear too many stamps for the weight or have grease stains on the envelope or wrapping.”
