Terrorist threat

OK I'm not a terrorist threat, but I could be.

OK I couldn't be; I haven't got what it takes.

My point is that nobody else knows that. You can't just look and me and say "Terrorist? Not a chance." And I did travel with my daughter's expiring passport...

It was only while I was on the flight from Dalaman to Gatwick that I realised something quite alarming.

My hand baggage had gone through two X-Ray checks. One imagines that anything that shouldn't be in hand baggage would have been discovered at one or other check.

I didn't think I should have been allowed on the plane with a penknife, even a small one, but I had been. I'd forgotten to pack it in the hold luggage. Oops.

It's a good job I'm not a major threat to security.
