Prime Minister Cameron’s encounter with a jogger has sparked a concern about his close protection squad.
The incident took place when the prime minster left a meeting and was on rout to his vehicle.
The concern has been raised by the fact that the man ran across the road onto the pavement past and in between three close protection officers from the police without even being noticed and then physically ran into the prime minster.
It appears that the incident was innocent but had it no been so, the nature of the news about the outcome would be very different.
Given the high state of the threat level in UK and that the prime minster is a highly valued target for terrorist as the head of government in UK and in theory at least he enjoys the highest level of protection this incident highlighted serious short comings in his security.
The incident will no doubt lead to a review of training and protocols of his team at the very basic level as this security breach highlights the fact that very basics rules of close protection were over looked by his team.
