Britain Adopts Threat Levels

Security expert Bruce Schneier has a round up of his thoughts on the threat levels britain has just adopted. In short they are a terribly stupid idea if your aim is to improve security. For reasoned argument from an expert you should read it. However if you just want ranting ... I think that Labour won't even find this thing useful for it's true reason, stoking up Fear at politically advantageous moments. They have set the initial level too high, there is no room for tweaking it around in order to lull people to a state of lowered panic before blasting it up to put the frighteners on when they need them.
