BAA Backdown

Here is the story of the British Airport Authority backdown on fingerprinting passengers in the new Terminal 5. It seems that they now wish to photograph everybody going through the terminal instead because the legality of fingerprinting has been questioned.

Their reasoning for these measures is to allow domestic and international passengers to mingle in the terminal, then they can check that the passengers are who they say they are when they come to board domestic flights, danger of illegal immigration you see.

In other words, by piling them all together, and infinging their freedoms and liberty in the name of security, the BAA can make more money from passengers in their vulgar shopping mall style terminal.
