Yes, It's Great The Army Have Been Called In But What About The Rest Of Us?

Yes, it's wonderful that the army has been called in to protect London and Manchester.. but what about the rest of us?
Are we, who live in different areas immune to terrorism or aren't we important enough?

As private Fraser would say "we're doomed, doomed I tell ye!"
No need for troops on the streets, and they don't want to be there either, just Government trying to prove they are in control of the situation.

Plastering the capital with soldiers to protect the corgis and the establishment won't make a blind bit of difference to us plebs.
Any nutter with a truck can wipe out dozens of innocents at a thousand locations countrywide.

I'm not sure I'd feel any safer surrounded by soldiers. I'd rather things were being observed secretly, then they could pounce on anyone suspicious without us feeling threatened.
