"He couldn't find any knives"

We were going to have a right rant about this when we saw the headline Dubai family turned away from Eye. After two men were escorted off that plane in Malaga we felt ashamed to be British - those two chaps should have had the flight to themselves while the fuckwits screaming WITCH waited around for the next plane. And now we've got that kind of stupidity in London? Well, as it turns out this incident happened in June and can probably be put down to an over zealous (we think the technical term is 'prick') security guard at the Eye:

London Eye bosses have apologised to a family from Dubai who were initially stopped from boarding, apparently after being overheard speaking in Arabic. Syed Husain, 65, of Manor House, north London, was stopped while showing his sister and brother-in-law the sights... Mr Husain's bag was searched and he was told to bring it to a locker at Waterloo Station, while his sister and her husband were held in a secure area nearby. He returned without the bag and the three queued again but were confronted by the same security guard, who asked if he was carrying knives.

Just because this happened a few months ago doesn't make it any more excusable, but at least it wasn't directly due to the current FEAR NOW, THINK LATER policy of the powers that be.

Fingers crossed we can get through the latest round of threats and stupidity without falling into the paediatrician/paedophile tourist/terrorist trap.
