Security services 'prevented 13 UK terror attacks since 2013' per BBC News

This BBC report has an interestingly worded sentence:

'Much of the threat is posed by so-called Islamic State, but senior detectives said al-Qaeda remained a danger, as did far-right terrorism.'

I wonder what the comparative level of threat from Islamist terrorists, whether IS or AQ, is when compared with far-right terrorists? 10 to one? 100 to one? Also I note that there's no mention of the threat from dissident Irish Republican terrorists, I wonder why...
