UK to get new anti-terrorism laws

Police, intelligence, and security forces in the UK will be more strongly empowered by new laws, if passed,  to fight terrorism into the future, where the fight will continue for an unknown number of years. One of the bills involves insurance companies definitely being banned from paying ransoms in the hope this will deter terrorists from taking hostages for ransoms. Which other bills are coming soon and which powers they will contain is not specified but they will definitely concern controlling and gathering information. A web data gathering plan is also back on the agenda for discussion. The UK is also conducting public information sessions to help people identify homegrown terrorists. The UK is on a high alert for terrorism. If the UK is doing this, other nations will follow. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-30173238
