What's All The Surveillance And Intelligence For Then

Not much confidence that the intelligence agencies can actually stop this stuff. What are we spending all that money for then?
David Cameron placed the UK on high alert for a terror attack, as holidaymakers in Paris were told to “stay indoors” and security checks were ramped up at British airports and ferry terminals.

The Prime Minister said the scale of the atrocity in France revealed “a greater ambition for mass-casualty attacks” on the West, and warned that an attempt to bring terror to the UK was “highly likely”.

Is that "pundit" highly likely (otherwise known as just making stuff up) or "I'm the Prime Minister so I actually know things" highly likely. If the latter, what do you know today that you didn't know two days ago?
