Terror cordon' plan for UK cities


New laws allowing police to enforce "emergency cordons" in major British cities in the event of a terrorist attack are being considered by ministers.

The Cabinet Office refused to say whether they would be a response to a threat from biological or chemical weapons.

But a spokesman confirmed the plans were being looked at as part of new civil contingencies legislation.

It is likely that any such measures would be overseen by the police rather than the army.

Military units

The new laws would allow police to stop the spread of infection by throwing "health cordons" around areas hit by biological or chemical attacks, according to the Sunday Times newspaper.

There will certainly be some panic with people jumping into their cars with their families to try to flee the city

Professor Michael Langman
It said that people would be prevented from escaping from the affected area.

Specially trained armed police and military units would be sent in to enforce the cordons and control any outbreak of disorder including looting.

The Ministry of Defence told the newspaper that a new civil contingency reaction force would have the option of using live ammunition.

The 7,000-strong force is to be deployed to 14 regions next year.

'Legal issues'

The new laws are expected to form part of a new "civil contingencies" bill to be published shortly.

The Cabinet Office told the Sunday Times that changes in the law were needed to cope with the threat posed by modern terrorists.

"There are legal issues around the setting up of health cordons and keeping people in and out of them," a spokesman said.

"The law may need to be tightened in this area and that is what is being looked at."

Current anti-terrorist laws allow the use of force to evacuate buildings, but not to enforce a cordon indefinitely.

'Some panic'

According to Professor Michael Langman of the joint vaccination and immunisation committee, there are concerns that people could flee cities which had suffered a chemical or biological attack.

He said: "There will certainly be some panic with people jumping into their cars with their families to try to flee the city and avoid contamination, but they would have to be stopped."

The government is currently stockpiling 60 million doses of smallpox vaccine - enough for the whole of the UK's population.

And a draft bill being put before Parliament next year will force councils to put together emergency plans on how to cope with biological, nuclear and chemical attacks.

A Cabinet Office spokesman said the plans would provide "a structure for civil defence for the 21st century", updating legislation from 1948 and 1986 that reflected Cold War threats.

These so called cold war threats like global warming, Al Qaeda, ISIS and Ebola provide the justification for increased military spending, loss of freedoms and privacy, more spying and excuse for soft Marshall law to protect us from the enemy within. Their plans are so obvious and dangerous but remind us all what the cabal have in mind.

Similar things are going on in the USA where a number of states have declared a public health emergency which effectively overrides any constitutional rights - soft Marshall law and forced vaccinations !

Next step will be to release a weaponised version of Ebola - airborne

Remember, remember the fifth of November of gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gun powder treason should ever be forgot.

Whoops, you're right. It means legislation is already in place. I think the article is timely though

Actually, that was my point.

We probably thought they were just being proactive back in 2002.

Just as they were way ahead of getting the Gun Control in 1987 with the Hungerford massacre.

I think it was already tested with the recent 'Road cycle Races' I ended up stuck in an inner circle, couldn't drive out. Even that 'race event' had quite an eye opening psychological effect on me! When it comes down to the crunch, if you live in a city you are stuck, unless your capable of going undercover!

Indeed, always check the date source of stuff that gets posted here. We know lazy journalists rarely bother doing any of that, but we are all better than them aren't we?

They like to slip these laws through when most of us aren't paying attention, for situations they have up their sleeves several years later.

I was just listening to a Simon Parks interview where he related a comment an official of some sort made to him about why the cops want to take away people's long range weapons (not their handguns) because with a handgun you have to be much closer if you want to shoot at them, where with a longer range weapon you can shoot from much further away. In other words you have a much better advantage with a long range weapon. It makes sense why so many of the False Flag attacks are done with these weapons.
