I’ve never been asked to take my kindle out of my bag anywhere except LHR. I’ve had the swab everything nonsense there too but also been told not to take it out. Now I do and tell the goon that’s how it is if they argue which I find they do from time to time.

At airports where I trust the security far more like MUC, DXB, SIN, HKG and so on they don’t need these things to be scanned separately, I’m not sure whether it’s because they have better quality equipment or the staff are of higher calibre and have higher powered brains than the LHR goons, probably both.
