Travelling light

I’ve been through the new ‘security’ procedures at UK airports four times in the last fortnight. It’s getting to the stage where every passenger will have to strip naked before boarding a plane. The picture shows the scene at Stansted on a relatively quiet Sunday. On the left are the (relatively short) check-in queues. On the right, the queues for the security screening gates. Osama bin Laden has won, hands down.
