There’s much less to the UK’s recent terror trials than the prosecution cares to admit. From the fictitious “red mercury” to the non-existent ricin behind the “ricin plot” of a couple of years ago, it seems that anti-terror busts in the UK are just as, well, “substantial” as the ones held in the US.
