Blunkett says calls to share information is 'Arrant Nonsense'. 

I am a little late with this but as the silence grows and government refuse to be accountable it needs saying.

When I wrote to Hazel Blears asking for her to share what credible information she had on terrorism with us, the people, I wasn't holding my breath for a reply, and, of course, Blunkett's statement came a few days later, not, I am sure, as a personal response to me. 

Here's what he said, "David Blunkett, the Home Secretary, has rejected calls to follow the United States’ lead and give more details of the terrorist threat to Britain as "arrant nonsense". 

Greater openness about al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups risked unnecessary alarm and exposing politicians to "ridicule", Mr. Blunkett said."

Will someone tell this man that what he has achieved is to light the fire of ridicule by his own words. Perhaps I should stop POL UK, it seems the government is trying to make me redundant. Well, no, at the risk of being as obvious as Mr. Blunkett, someone has to point these things out.
