Because of the difficulties of distinguishing friend and foe, security and insecurity, or even war and peace, terrorism appears to be an endemic and endless risk. The embedded nature of the terrorist risk appears to demand the treatment of one's neighbour as potentially friend and foe. One of the consequences is the application of 'all risks' policing measures, such as stop and search powers. The question is how the casting of the intelligence web or the application of policing powers can be used both to enhance security and to keep the faith with constitutional values.
