Home Secretary’s Quote

Where did the Home Secretary get the inspiration for this quote?
“The most basic human right is the right not to be blown up by terrorists while walking along the street or flying in a plane.” Jackie Smith, House of Commons, 7th Jan ’09.
“It is the single most important human right; the right to get the bus to work without being blown to pieces by a fanatic with a bomb in his rucksack. It is the right to work in a tall building without air-liners being flown into it. It is the right to travel on a plane without a south-London drop-out sneaking explosive on board in the heel of his shoe.” Dan McCurry, Progressonline, 4th July ‘08.
