Operation Temperer Exposed: UK Army’s Secret Plan For Martial Law If ‘No Deal’ Brexit

The first time we heard about the British government’s “Operation Temperer” was shortly after the dreadful terrorist explosion in Manchester in June 2017, when  Prime Minister Theresa May declared “enough is enough”, and demanded a review of the UK’s counter-terrorism strategy.

As Brandon Smith noted at the time, the deployment of over 5000 British troops at strategic locations by Theresa May is all part of a plan established in 2015 called “Operation Temperer”. The plan calls for the deployment of troops within the UK border in response to “major terrorist threats”. As The Mail on Sunday uncovered at the time:

Whitehall officials had kept it under wraps because it contained such sensitive information.

Theresa May, who made the decision, makes her the first Prime Minister to use a new plan for a show of force in the face of major terrorist threats.

Mrs May said it would be the decision of police chiefs to decide where to deploy the military, though they are most likely to be used to guard top tourist attractions, airports and railway stations and sporting venues.

David Cameron had opposed controversial power because he didn’t want the UK to appear like it had lost control and was imposing martial law.
