British Airways; Bastion of Common Sense and Slayers of Political Idiocy
Having watched mothers clearly going on their hols with their brood having to throw away baby milk and open sealed packets of baby food to taste - something is clearly awry.
The key message too is that the US have their own demands (not made for domestic travellers, interesting as 9/11 targeted domestic flights because that was where security was low), then the EU and then the UK. Also more powerful scanners have been brought in - so in effect security has got tighter and tighter.
I don't want to see any more attacks, especially as I am a regular traveller, but clearly bureaucracy has had its normal field day in expanding beyond the necessary; So I applaud Broughton for standing up and saying the Emperor has no clothes.
Remember too that it was Willie Walsh last year who was so strident in saying the Ash Cloud was not as dangerous as the Governments would have us believe. Bravely he flew through it and although was ignored and castigated, until he was proven right. Willie Walsh, now a Government adviser, is also quoted today as a keen proponent of growth and not worrying about socialist propaganda about a new recession.
We should celebrate having a company where the management are not frightened of the truth and are willing to challenge the vast Government machine consensus.
