Terminal Stupidity

I’m beginning to think the world’s easiest job is the guy who checks the job applications of prospective baggage handlers.

All he needs to do is watch out for Muslim men with a seething anger against the West.

If he finds one of them, he gives them the job.

A Heathrow worker held on suspicion of terrorist fundraising is a baggage handler who loads planes, The Sun can reveal.

The 43-year-old – one of two British Airways employees under arrest – has an airside pass and access to jets.

His job has alarmed security chiefs and raised fears he was planning to plant a bomb on a BA aircraft.

However, Scotland Yard stressed last night the man had been arrested on suspicion of financing terrorism, not of plotting atrocities.

Well, ain’t that a relief! For a minute there, I thought he posed a danger to airline passengers.
