Going back to the original theme of this thread, why in the UK are we still being subjected to such ridiculous levels of scrutiny especially about liquids and the size of the plastic bags etc. If paranoid USA with all the rhetoric of immigration policy and the building of the wall, still feel able to reduce the airside to landside requirements, why will the UK not review certain requirements.
I am not suggesting we reduce the security levels/checking, but surely in 2017, with the advancement of technology, does it really matter if a plastic bag is the wrong size or whether a deodorant can is slightly bigger than what is allowed.
I know which shoes and belts I use which will or will not set of the security check machine. OK one in 10, I at get a random check, but why do I need to take my shoes and belt off when I know the machine wont highlight a problem.
