We received a spontaneousreport from an old friend in theUK, who relayed the following storyto show that nobody messes with UKsecurity staff.
‘Last summer at Manchester airportI witnessed an incident in which a turban-wearing gent, who claimed not tospeak any English, attempted to get a’religious kettle’ through security.
Bad enough, but it was sealed andobviously full of liquid! Through aninterpreter he said it was for a religiousevent he was attending and it ‘mustnot’ be opened. Sorry chum!
He caused so much trouble, it hadto be seen to be believed – and everybodypussy-footing around him fearfulof some racial incident being sparkedor offending his religious sensibilities!The kettle and its contents were takenaway."
