Re: Turkey Holiday Terror?

Copied and pasted from facebook

Following the article in the DAILY STAR SUNDAY I rang them… most concerned that I should ‘’avoid Turkey at all costs’’… and that the Gov.uk website does not show the information they were referring too.
She had to admit that the only ‘risk areas’ mentioned on gov.uk are miles away in Syria. I said that the way they reported it was extremely misleading to first time travellers and it amounts to ‘scaremongering’. She said that the information had come from a risk awareness expert working for INTELLIGENCE FUSION (who sell software packages). So I rang them with a story that I am taking my kids away on Saturday and that my travel agent would not let me cancel. He just said due to the turmoil in the Turkey but I then asked if he recommends people not coming to the London because of all the knife crime? ''I live up north'' was his reply. Says it all huh

On the FO website the only change was the removal of the warnings around election time, check out the warnings for Spain or any other country.

Re: Turkey Holiday Terror?

F & C O just sent this update which you can read for yourselves. Basically it's no change, don't go east, and keep away from political/ social demos etc.
If caught up in anything do what the police advise.

Re: Turkey Holiday Terror?

Probably more dangerous to stay at home.
This is from the GOV.UK website, concerning the UK. https://www.gov.uk/terrorism-national-emergency

Terrorism threat levels
The threat level indicates the likelihood of a terrorist attack in the UK.

International threats
The threat to the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) from international terrorism is severe.

Threat levels
severe - an attack is highly likely

Re: Turkey Holiday Terror?

Also " Michael McCabe, chief executive of risk awareness experts Intelligence Fusion" sounds a right [email protected]

Quote:
Tell us about your business, what does it do?
Intelligence Fusion is a crowdsourced intelligence platform. What does that mean? We connect people from around the world on one platform, sharing information regarding threats.
...
How did you access the finance you needed?
I had watched Dragon’s Den for years so it was a slightly daunting task to put a business plan, financials and a slide deck together, and then pitch to investors, particularly for an ex-squaddie with no business background.
...
What has been your biggest achievement so far?
Selling our data feed to one of the largest private intelligence companies in the world.
...
Where do you see your business in five years time?
Intelligence Fusion is not a lifestyle business. It is a business being scaled to be sold to a large private security, consultancy or publishing company. ... Ideally, we will scale the business to a point where we are acquired and my family and I will be rewarded for all our years of hard work and sacrifice.

In addition, it would be nice if I was kept on to run the business.
