The new vehicle blockers are being trialled for major events like Anzac Day and at other locations across Sydney’s CBD as part of the NSW government’s commitment to public protection, Mr Elliott says.

Crowds attending Anzac Day events in the city are being told to plan their trip and allow extra time for bag checks.

People are urged to avoid driving and instead use the additional public transport services with extensive road closures in place from 2.30am to 4pm.

One thought on “Australia in the grip of Islamic terror”

  1. Re: “Concrete bollards, bag checks and vehicle blockers — why is all this necessary? Because of the possibility that some Muslims might try to carry out a jihad massacre. But don’t Sydney authorities know that it’s a Religion of Peace and only greasy Islamophobes think otherwise? How dare they suggest that there is a problem with jihad terrorism — even as, of course, they refuse to name it or identify the source of the threat in any way?”

    BECAUSE THEY’RE “POLITICIANS” WHOSE MOTTO ALWAYS WAS, STILL IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE:

    “THERE’S NO MONEY IN SOLUTIONS!”

    Whee!
