Dahlia - you are soooo right. Just read this piece re the security - the experts are saying this is going to be complex and far more expensive than any of us realise (although many of us guessed it wouldn't be just the £50 million they claimed). Scary stuff - I doubt I would go to London with children to watch it knowing this.

The SAS has been moved in. Some talk of them taking over a barracks in central London to improve response times.

Anybody with a brain can see that the venue must be changed.  It's difficult, I know, but it's also the wise thing to do.  Will they listen?  Doubt it.  To think that anyone could get hurt so Wasty can have her big day is absurd.

Someone needs to take it out of HM's hands to make the call.  And maybe they will.  How much more positive press she would get if she wasn't forced to move this disaster of a wedding.

No matter how we pick at Kate, I don't want to see her get hurt and possibly maimed. I don't think that HM will listen and frankly I see a cabinet revolt if she doesn't change the venue and I would never want her (Kate) to experience physical assault at the hands of a demented mob.

^^I don't want to see her get hurt, either, but this isn't about her alone.  There are a lot of innocent people that concern me more than her cushy a$$.  She asked for this big show and if they're not sensible enough to change their thinking about this 'People's Wedding/low key' affair, then the blame falls firmly on their shoulders if, God forbid, something happens to anyone.

I only wish Prince William got the message. This pomp and pageantry at this time is too much for the people to bear, especially knowing that millions of pounds will come out of public coffers to pay for the security. Unbelievable! I'm really disappointed with Prince William, I really am!  Angry

True. But PW is the one who wants to have a big wedding at Westminster Abbey that will cost the taxpayer tens of millions of pounds.

I'm shocked that it's getting as bad as it is. As for the RF, they need ot STOP taking for granted the restraint of the people; the French did, the Russians did, and if pushed, they very well might go after HM herself, and then WHAT? The minute that Camilla got attacked, is the minute that the wedding should have been moved to Windsor. More security at Westminster will send a horrible message and it will only infuriate the people more and then they will need more security, creating a vicious cycle. There is no way that the most devoted security officer can stop a well aimed bullet or a double row of officers can prevent a determined mob from breaking through. The RF is afraid for themselves, which is not smart since they should be afraid enough to move the venue to something less expensive with a handful of press and family and the ambassadors with their wives to represent their country.

True. But PW is the one who wants to have a big wedding at Westminster Abbey that will cost the taxpayer tens of millions of pounds.

No, KATE is the one who wants the big wedding at Westminster in the main chapel.

Today's Telegraph story on the issue where the head of the Met says there is to be no limit on costs of security. Just as many had always known this will cost way more than the £50 million figures given out at the start.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/royal-wedding/8410157/Anarchists-plan-to-target-royal-wedding.html

and the Mail where they say police are to use stop and search powers and other anti terrorist measures

Time to downsize and move elsewhere.

Hi MK - this story in the Telegraph says £50 million, possibly £80 million. There are other reports saying the same. As with most publicly issued figures it usually turns out to be far more than they estimate in order to pacify the public over spending.

A poster on the DM website suggested we all look at this mob and it frightens the life out of me. The security services will be working around the clock but all of this must be their worst nightmare. Let us all hope it carries off peacefully - even if we think it's a farce. I am thinking of all those doting old dears and young mums with children who will want to turn out - even if I wouldn't. Keep them safe.

Holy *poo*!  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked
Now that sounds serious!

I don't think that a violent and angry mob could hurt William and Kate. A riot will be bad PR, might destroy the infrastructure and hurt a few bystanders and police, but nothing REALLY serious. The MI5/ Scotland Yard/ Police/ SAS or whatever agency is involved can take care of them -maybe even before things get out of hand. I bet there will be thousands of security people in plain clothes in London. And the CCTV will definitely have hundreds of people monitoring the streets with facial recognition software etc. Enough to take care of the amateurs that look dangerous. 

The real danger would be a sniper with a high powered rifle. He could position himself a kilometer or even almost a mile away from the target area, all it takes would be a clear shot without trees. The police will secure the roofs but they simply can't protect them from a professional hitman. All it takes would be money from a rich "muslim". I am saying muslim because of the link above, yes there are many people who have a grudge against the monarchy, but only the terrorists have real money. ie. Gadaffi is a billionaire, even former Egyptian  president Mubarak has 40 billions, etc. They make hundreds of millions and could easily afford 500K or even one million each for a hit on the royal couple. Lips Sealed  If there is a contract on them then I guess they are screwed hide William and Harry wanting to join forces in Afganistan against muslims doesn't help the situation either.

OMG! I know we are now on their watchlist too! easter-lol Echelon and other services have surely picked up on this thread already .... tooo many 'trigger words' X-Mas_rolleyes 


edit:  I went back to the page.....
I know where the page comes from.  There is a telephone number on the page, I think I'll call and ask what the *copulate* is going on! I am a little pissed Organizing a demontstration against the monarchy/wedding is one thing, but all the acusations and bloody pictures is distasteful. I afraid some people will cross the line here.
