My personal feeling is that if it's all over by the weekend it was a con
exercise,the police have been all over this lot for months and it's a PR
and if it's going on next week it was all for real.
Cool (by which I do not mean anything the iPod generation would
understand by the word, hell, most of these children have never even
heard of Miles Davis) analysis. I'm inclined to agree. Chi vivra',
And I've just heard a report that makes me very suspicious of the whole
A quotation from:
"Sources at the Department for Transport have indicated that the current
restrictions on hand baggage could become permanent. "
In reality nobody's going to stand for this rigmarole on a long term basis.
Nobody is going to risk their two grand lap-top to Heathrow baggage handlers
and an aircraft hold at -40C.
Neither are 1st class passengers and tourists going to stand for two body
searches and nothing to read, they'll just go elsewhere.
The other thing that positively stinks is that the only place where there's
been any real disruption is Heathrow.
The big charter flight air-ports, Gatwick, Stanstead and Robin Hood, have
had virtually no problems.
However Heathrow was chaos, BA have hundreds of flights cancelled including
all internal flights.
Something is wrong with this picture.
The big charter air-ports with their hordes of children and tourists should
have been collapsing under the strain with mothers tasting baby milk and
spilling it everywhere and camera being confiscated in hundreds, Heathrow
with its scheduled flights and hordes of business men with hand luggage only
shouldn't have had this level of problems.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Barbeques on fire by the chalets past the castle headland
I watched the gift shops glitter in the darkness off the Newborough gate
All these moments will be lost in time, like icecream on the beach
Time for tea.
