These days governments can sell anything as long as they jam the word “security” in. I’m not buying it. Otherwise, France should be on the list (before UAE) as a country with most terrorist attacks in recent months.
It’s done via intelligence… prob of a level way over yours and our heads. Maybe people should accept things for what they are, not try and make blame etc… what possibility woulda UK government have to gain from not allowing a laptop on board… really!!!!
Maybe people need to realise that the government’s job is to keep the country safe, and have more than just you and your little Dell laptop to worry about… so people need to do it, lump it and shut up
