There has been a mainstream media frenzy following the Paris attacks late last week and 24/7 rolling news has brought British citizens a mass of information and a fair amount of propaganda.
David Cameron has said this week he will make a case for the U.K. to be part of striking Daesh terrorists by launching air strikes in Iraq and Syria.
He has already confirmed billions will be spent on more spies although police numbers continue to be cut; weaponery also comes at a price and maybe more austerity budget cuts.
Cameron failed to get parliamentary support for such military action back in 2013; he was forced to accept that a majority in parliament and the country had no stomach for yet more military action.
However in the wake of terrible attacks across the channel in France he will be hoping his time has come.
And of course all this ties in with the current demonising of Jeremy Corbyn.
Corbyn will be forced between a rock and a hard place if and when Cameron holds a vote on any such military action in Syria.
Cameron could choose to use a special veto and go ahead with air strikes without the support of parliament but probably will not.
Instead the ground work for air strikes is being laid by the Tory press in a series of attacks on Corbyn.
Ultimately how he responds to U.K. military strikes in Syria may determine his political future as leader of the Labour Party and possible Prime Minister of the country.
It is worth remembering that Corbyn's comments are often seized upon and taken out of context. It is also worth remembering that post 7/7 in the U.K. a young Brazilian man living in London, Jean Charles da Silva e de Menezes was mistakenly shot and killed by police officers who had wrongly identified him as having links to the terrorists.
Targeted shoot to kill operations in foreign lands too many times result in the death of more innocents and escalate hatred solving little.
Mr. Corbyn may at times offer the voice of reason but in the days following the Paris terror attacks his critics will pounce on that as weakness.
Once again it looks like our freedom of politics is being undermined, if we allow it to happen.
