Well done to the security services for busting a ring of apparent flight-bomb-terrorists.
However, sod the government for introducing a whole bunch of arbitrary ‘security’ restrictions just to ensure that everybody knows about the plot, remains scared and understands that Our Way Of Life Is Under Threat and only our Dear Leader can protect us.
They’ve busted the fucking bombers. If anything, it’s time to reduce fucking security restrictions. And the no-hand-luggage rule is just bizarre – if you’re a competent enough terrorist to smuggle a bomb onto a plane, then you’re a competent enough terrorist to build pressure- and timer-based detonators for it and stick it in the hold (this also reduces your chances of wimping out, which is a plus for your ringleaders, and of being disarmed by angry passengers like Richard Reid).
Oh, and if this puts anyone off flying for reasons of safety rather than annoyance, you’re a pathetic twat and I hope you die.
