Since 9/11 the governments of the West have forced air passengers to endure countless humiliations. We have been scanned, groped, prodded and ordered about "for our own protection" by just the sort of people we worked hard at school never to have to be bullied by again. Now it transpires that, all this time, airlines were loading unscanned freight into the holds beneath us. It was all, as some of us suspected, a monumental waste of our time. It was a fraudulent, entirely unjustified assault.Excellent stuff, as usual.
