This is not directly connected with the earlier arrest today in a foiled jihad attack on Westminster. No, this is just the day-to-day progress of the war that dares not speak its name. As the daily acts of war in our streets become more common, so, in turn, does the silencing of speech that speaks of the enemy ideology.
