A crack team of spin doctors and smear merchants is understood to have landed in Westminster and gone underground, ready to spring into action on the date of the next terror atrocity.
These elite troops, made famous by Mandy McNab's blockbuster book, Twin Towers - a Great Day to Bury Bad News, are trained to spring into action and make tiny, short term political gains while the nation is distracted by grief.
McNab led an initiative to smuggle press releases past the media in September 2001, while the nation was distracted by events in New York. Operation Brave Two Zero Zero One was to end in failure, after the team's cover was blown by a local civil servant who raised the alarm. But it was to prove an inspiration for hundreds of others who volunteered for similar operations.
They didn't have to wait long. On July 7th 2005, under cover of a massive bombing campaign in London, a ruthless team of assassins launched their most ambitious raid ever - to take out the democratically elected prime minister Tony Blair.
A hand picked team of Britain's most miserable bastards was assembled for The Glumpowder Plot, was ready to mobilise the minute chaos descended on the capital. Sadly, the plot was foiled and Britain continued to be ruled by a democractically elected prime minister. But the plotters were eventually to succeed and Gordon Brown was able to breach 10 Downing Street and cause irreparable damage.
Cuts in funding and a lack of terror strikes have limited the activity of these heroic freedom fighters. But the regiment isn't dead yet.
