London: the new battlefront?

The news is that the Ministry of Defence is planning to deploy not less than 13,500 troops in the Greater London area in 2012 by the time of the Olympic Games. The ever present threat of something going wrong means that somehow, in terms of internal security, the Home Office is being replaced by the Ministry of Defence, given the fact that the Home Office proved to be totally incapable of dealing with incidents in London. What is more, according to Police accounts, the Home Secretary Theresa May disregarded early warnings concerning widespread rioting in London and elsewhere and told high rank Police officers that they were over-reacting.
