Amid press confusion after the MI5 Chief's speech it was clarified that he said the Uk faces waves of attacks from Irish and Islamic terrorism and that they were not one and the same outfit as had been reported in some parts of the Internet especially on USA websites. 'I think you would find they wouldn't get on especially on some issues like public music and drinking'.
The Mi5 Chief also admitted its a shame the Uk wasn't facing a respectable terrorist like Mandela that would give the whole thing some intellectual dignity but, rather, its either professional bank robbing gangs who drink special brew or identity confused bored teenagers brainwashed by videos. "You can't have a decent conversation with any of them. Its not like the Le Carre books at all. Which is a pity."
