Indeed, how will allowing some bearded chap to look at my testicles (really closely) aid in counter terrorism?
But alas today, trials began in Manchester airport, and have currently turned up 4 nuts and a collection of manginas.
Why this is pointless:
- Will a terrorist/drug smuggler etc conceal a [insert weapon of mass destruction of choosing] by selotaping it to their buttox?
- What about ingesting? Semtex is tasty.
- Isn't airport "security" the last place you'd try to smuggle something through anyway?
- Wouldn't you just stick anything you wanted to get through in your carry on bag if you were to? Checks are hit and miss as we all know.
- My penis has regularly been deemed an offensive weapon. [Cheap gag].
- Who gets the job of looking at all the naked children? Or is this now the best place to hide an improvised nuclear device?
