Everything started once in UK. At the international terminal (mostly American airlines), security has gone mad. As he descibres, was stopped and questions by apparently british special forces like SAS about 3 times before even reaching the check-in counter. Apparently the entire terminal is completely packed with special forces lookign alike those in the movie hitman (for those that have seen it). Black suited security forces, armed to the tooth, and carrying all kind of weapons and gas masks!!

In the first control, one of the guards told him ONLY ONE BAG (he was carrying a backpack and a laptop handbag), so my brother tried to explain to the guard that the other bah was for the laptop.... which is common sense since he saw it himself, yet he told my brother to shut up, and either take the laptop or give it away with the handbag. Absurd. by the way a xmas present... .
