Any seasoned traveller will attest to the fact that Heathrow (International Airport) is a dreadful place.
Grossly inefficient, badly run, incomprehensible work practises. In any good airport transfer passengers will merely exit one plane and head for the appropriate gate to embark on the next one. No need for customs or passport formalities as one remains ‘airside’, which infers that all relevant controls are in place. But today, by the time I had landed at Terminal 4, to embarking at Terminal 1, I had to go through no fewer than four security checks.
And here’s the rub.
The “security” was provided by a scurvy bunch of mad-eyed, bearded Muslim fanatics — burkah clad Afghans (and) Blacks who seemed to have just emerged from the jungle. It’s not allowed, but to underline my point I discreetly photographed a representative sample, shown here. Do you need further proof?
Yes, the specimens you see here … force blond and blue-eyed English girls (to go) through humiliating ‘security’ tests … remove your shoes, come over here while I grope your private parts, go back again through the scanner. Brandishing their security clearance, in the event of, even a weary sigh from the victims.
As I went through yet another ‘security’ procedure, this time performed by an Osama bin Laden look-alike, contemplating as I did, the virtual certainty of my luggage getting mislaid (it did!) … I sighed that this was like a Turd World airport.
And then the penny dropped with a loud clang. It IS a Turd World airport, for Chrissake! Because with close to 80% of the staff there emanating from South Asia or Africa … by definition … it IS Turd World.
How come that never dawned on me before? >Source
