Tim Blair’s site, February 6:
This year may see Australian government travel advisories warning against visiting major European cities.

UPDATE. A curious warning:
The U.S. Embassy in Brussels informs U.S. citizens that anti-terrorism police activity is ongoing and that Belgium remains on threat level FOUR, the highest in the Belgian scale.

“Quite mysterious,” emails Alan R. M. Jones. “Apparently it is important to ‘avoid any police action that may occur.’ No mention of what this action may be about.”
