[Believable] Birmingham Airport Security Shennanigans

Posted by Lex Fear on June 4, 2007

This Post Is Rated: C for Controversial. Interesting results of an investigation into airport security by ITV’s Tonight programme.

ITV sent an undercover reporter into Birmingham airport to reveal serious screw ups lapses in airport security. Video can be seen here.

“Undercover filming showed bag checkers reading newspapers and other workers fast asleep”

Regular readers of this blog should not be surprised, as I highlighted their incompetence last year:

“So even though my wife was denied access, she was allowed through anyway, so much for protecting the country from the marriage bomb. Even better was the ‘escorted’ deportation. We walked up to the check-in, surprised and confused the lady. Mrs Fear made a point of collecting her air-miles, and then we were free to wander around departures with no problems whatsoever. Only when Mrs fear got to the departure gate, that a flustered immigration orificer came out with her passport, handed it back and walked off. Again, no escort, no handcuffs, no checks.

She walked through the gate and another immigration orificer, she handed him her passport. He then looked at her and stated “We were looking all over for you… Do you have your passport?”
“Yes,” she responded, “…you’re holding it.”
“Where is it?”
“You… are… holding… it” – An Immigration Problem Part 2

I would now like to see them investigate the employment of college age chavs on work experience at Heathrow.
