Another False Alarm
But the police did absolutely the right thing throughout. Having used Heathrow Airport to go to and from the US in the past week I can tell you security is tight to the point where you feel a bit nervous, esp when entering the US. It can also be irritating, esp when you have to do things like taking your belt and shoes off as I did, but today has reminded us why it is all there and thank God they are vigilant. It's times like this that I remember the IRA's chilling message after the Brighton Bomb that they only have to be lucky once. A sobering thought indeed!
