Paranoid? Oh Noooo.... There's a terrorist and a child pornographer hiding behind EVERY bush, our government tells us so, so that they can trash the Constitution.

Lol...and quite right too, you know you should believe them, implicitly right, after all, they are only looking out for your best interests...........

I already bore that cross...Labour/Conservatives sold us Brits out to the EU eons ago...............although, we have had to deal with a lot of 'real' terrorism for decades, so, there's not much you can teach us on that front (IRA)........

LOL. I used to fly into Gatwick because the IRA routinely would use a mortar to blow potholes into Heathrow's runways causing massive delays. For some reason, they were "nice" terrorists at times and left Gatwick alone. I do remember though that they were often NOT "nice" terrorists and caused much death, carnage and mayhem for decades. Yes, I would term them "real" terrorists, not like the "manufactured" terrorists our government uses to scare the sheeple.

You should of tried being a motorcycle courier ( delivery's) in and around Manchester, and most ALL of the UK....some days, we'd be riding along and BOOM!!!! covered in glass, and no work to be done......other times, whole Motorway networks would be shut down for half the day.....still, on a Bike, filtering down the traffic THAT bit was kinda fun!!!!!

That went on right until they destroyed Manchester Arndale with the biggest mainland bomb ever.....I was TEN miles away, mowing me lawn( Sunday) and it shook the ground beneath me!!!!

At THAT time, I don't think I'd want to be carrying packages for other people. I DO remember being asked by a machine gun toting soldier to pick up and hold my carry on that I had set down beside me (resting against my leg) for a moment to look at something in one of the airport shops. Judging by the stern look on his face, I thought it best to immediately comply. I think it was the sandbag "bunkers" that appeared in front of the terminal entrance, with the 50 Cal. machine gun inside that was my first hint that these people were being serious. That was the Eve of the "First Gulf War". They had REAL security there. I was carrying computer tapes and security actually took the collar off of each one and wound them out to the start marker, to make sure they were really computer tapes. They KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING!!! I was impressed. They checked but didn't damage a single tape.

Ahhhh... The good old days... when we had someone OTHER than our OWN corrupt, worthless, self serving government to fear.

Yes......motorcycle...black leather jacket......no (real) ID badges......this was the early 80's-mid 90's...save for your licence......meant for an uneasy time with the Police and squaddies........

still......compared to when your mates ( who were also bike couriers) came over from N ireland and told you story's of running checkpoints/being shot at/delivering to 'dubious' farms in the border country) came over....you realised that delivering packages from Manchester>London was relatively tame!!!!!

Wish I could trade MY flags in for a "valuable gift" LOL. I could probably get a whole small nation somewhere.

The Belfast thing is probably some disgruntled old timer who decided to settle a grudge "the old fashioned way". There's only about a billion people walking around Belfast with bomb making skills.
