Poll: Most Britons still feel safe at home
by UPI

LONDON -- A new survey found that a majority of British residents asked say they feel safe even after the abortive terrorist bombings in London and Glasgow, Scotland.

Almost two-thirds -- 62 percent -- of those polled by Ciao Surveys for The Sun newspaper, said they feel safe, while just less than 30 percent said they don't.

The overwhelming majority, 90 percent, of respondents have made no changes in travel behavior since two cars loaded with fuel were left in central London and two men tried to fire bomb the terminal at Glasgow Airport. Nine percent said they have made changes, mostly by being more alert to their surroundings.

The poll also found that a majority of participants said they believe new British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is doing a good job in fighting terrorism and 48 percent say the same of Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.

At the same time, a majority said they believe that the government should adopt more stringent immigration controls and other anti-terrorist measures.
