Counter Terrorism Policing UK released a video to promote Action to Counter Terrorism.
The video alleges that UK citizens should be always vigilant and pay attention if others are doing something suspicious, such as carrying canisters or buying hammers (especially if they already have knives in their shopping basket).
One of the promotional tweets, which was deleted read the following:
Look again …it could save lives.
If you see something suspicious, like someone buying knives, hammers and other objects that could be used to cause harm – ACT.

With your help, police and MI5 have foiled 18 terror attacks in the UK since March 2017.
Sadly, life has no rewind button ⏪
If you see something that might help identify a threat, report it. ?#ActionCountersTerrorism

The slogan is “Life has no rewind button.”
The knife part is also most likely to reinforce the UK’s campaign aimed at convincing young people not to carry knives around.
The campaign video also shows a person recording UK police officers on his phone. Thus, it wants you to be suspicious of people who take photographs or videos of the police.
It finally ends with the claim that “Reporting suspicious activity won’t ruin lives, but it might save them.” That is because being suspected and investigated on terrorism allegations will have absolutely impact on a person’s life.
After all, in the UK law enforcement and the prosecutors office go after people for the content of their tweets, according to a Guardian report.
Russian analyst Mikaprok also weighed in on the situation.
In a sarcastic manner he said that:
“Many here still do not understand that Mr. Orwell could appear and become a writer only in one country in the world.
You will be “amazed”, but the UK has its own KGB and it regularly reaches new heights in promoting work with its own population.”
He reminded that not so long ago, all citizens were urged to report all of their neighbors’ actions, regardless of how innocent they may appear.
Everything is part of the program to identify terrorism in its earliest stages. This is said in plain language, absolutely without any restraint and attempt to propagate the sham of privacy.
Thus, it has always been clear whose invention the planting of a culture of permanent denunciations without any actual reason was.
Mikaprok then asks the question “If you’re constantly investigating others, how are you going to enjoy life?”
He concludes with the following: Brexit is still a good thing, if it actually turns into reality.
