How Convenient

The Government have now lifted many of their restrictions on hand luggage on planes which were imposed as a knee-jerk reaction to the terrorist threat publicised last week. Yet BAA will be keeping these restrictions in place until tomorrow.

Is it cynical of me to relate this to the fact that once through security you can buy the items that you are unable to take into the airport to the fact that BAA derive almost 25% of their income from retail outlets in the airports?

But Louise, why complain it's the free market at work! ;)
Seriously though, I do agree on this and what makes it more annoying is that they have a captive audience of customers

Aaah, but the free market only works when people know they are participating in a free market.
