British Food Supply Easy Target for Terrorists

Following the E.coli outbreak in Germany, which has killed 18 people and left 1,800 others seriously ill, British intelligence experts have warned food manufacturers and retailers that their businesses are vulnerable to poison attacks from terrorist groups.

According to a report released earlier this week by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (a branch of MI5), many ingredients and snacks are open to attack from contamination.

The CPNI says: ‘The food and drink industry in the UK could be under threat from ideologically motivated groups. The threat is unlikely to decline in the foreseeable future. This could cause mass casualties, economic disruption and widespread panic.’

In the video below, financial analyst and researcher Adrian Salbuchi explains the political implications of the outbreak in Europe:
