I haven't got the patience or civility to put a neutral spin to this, so that's why it's in the Rant forum.
LONDON (Reuters) - Anti-terrorism detectives escorted a man from a plane after a taxi driver had earlier become suspicious when he started singing
along to a track by punk band The Clash, police said on Wednesday.
... The taxi driver had become worried on the way to the airport because Mann had been singing along to The Clash's 1979 anthem "London Calling,"
which features the
lyrics "Now war is declared -- and battle come down" while other lines warn of a "meltdown expected".
Mann told newspapers the taxi had been fitted with a music system which allowed him to plug in his MP3 player and he had been playing The Clash,
Procol Harum, Led Zeppelin and the Beatles to the driver.
"He didn't like Led Zeppelin or The Clash but I don't think there was any need to tell the police," Mann told the Daily Mirror.
Madness. That right there is paranoia in action. I'm all for wanting to be safe and looking out for your fellow man, but informing the Police that
someone might be a Terrorist because they liked a Clash song??
Well, If you ask me, it's just not cricket old bean.
