It is always reassuring to know that Nanny has our best interests at heart. She is for ever vigilant with respect to the security threat, that she tells us we face.
To this end, it was highly reassuring to read that a suspected terrorist was arrested on the grounds of national security a week or so ago.
Sally Cameron a blond property developer, clearly fits the standard terrorist profile.
Nanny was vigilant and swift in her actions.
Sally was held for hours, for being a suspected terrorist.
Why, I hear you ask?
She was arrested under the Terrorism Act, for walking along a cycle path in the harbour area of Dundee.
"I've been walking to work every morning for months and months to keep fit.
One day, I was told by a guard on the gate that I couldn't use the route any more because it was solely a cycle path and he said, if I was caught doing it again, I'd be arrested.
The next thing I knew, the harbour master had driven up behind me with a megaphone, saying:
'You're trespassing, please turn back'.
It was totally ridiculous. I started laughing and kept on walking. Cyclists going past were also laughing.
But then two police cars roared up beside me and cut me off, like a scene from Starsky and Hutch, and officers told me I was being arrested under the Terrorism Act.
The harbour master was waffling on and (saying that), because of September 11, I would be arrested and charged."
Ms Cameron added:
"I was told that the cycle path was for cyclists only,
as if walkers and not cyclists were the only ones likely to plant bombs. There are no signs anywhere saying there are to be no pedestrians.
They took me to the police station and held me for several hours before charging me and releasing me."
She has now received a letter from the Tayside procurator fiscal's office, telling her that she would not be prosecuted.
The letter noted that
"the evidence is sufficient to justify bringing you before the court on this criminal charge".
Now can anyone tell me why Nanny is so keen to stop and arrest people such as Ms Cameron?
However, London bomber Mohammed Sidique Khan reportedly featured in a surveillance operation by intelligence services last year.
Khan was secretly filmed and recorded speaking to a UK-based terror suspect, according to a well-placed source.
A Radio 4 File on 4 and BBC Two Newsnight investigation also suggests he was in contact with al-Qaeda activists for the last five years.
Was he arrested?
Can someone explain that contradiction in Nanny's security policy please?
