It's a good thing I do not like being in climates other than those to be found here on the British Isles, if flying requires one to be clean shaven.
As white as I am, I have been mistaken for many questionable persons, and was once stopped by police while walking home late at night, who thought
that I was one of the top ten most wanted terror suspects in the country.
Clearly, if I ever decide to leave this land for any reason, I am going to have to swim, if this is the route that air carriers and other passenger
transport companies are going down.
Does this not fly in the face of everything that freedom and liberty are supposed to be about? Is this not the very thing that rights and freedoms
are supposed to prevent? I cannot see why, with all the security processes that stand between a potential source of danger, and the plane itself, why
even a person who is clearly Muslim, by way of garb, speech, and manner, should not be able to board an aircraft and fly in a nation whose principles
revolve around freedom.
That this man, who could be of any extraction, of any faith or political extraction upon appearance, can be prevented from flying because of the
unfounded and baseless concerns of a passenger speaks volumes about the reality of freedom and liberty for all. It's a bloody lie at this point in
time, if this sort of nonsense is anything to go by.
