Its ok because the UK government is going to start banning them...
Well at least on 'direct flights' from some middle east countries (similar to a US imposed ban it has to be admitted).
They clearly don't think any terrorist happy to blow up a flight into Heathrow is able to book two tickets... one from Turkey to Germany and one from Germany to UK, or, heaven forbid driving to Germany first. Heaven help us when our security people are so stupid.
Add this to the fact that Stansted features as a stunning terrorist target given their inability to staff more than 40% of their security belts leads to several thousand men, women and children in an enclosed space with metal barriers, suitcases and rucksacks... God the world has gone potty
