Liquid Bomb Complot
Luis, there was no prevented assault involving liquid bombs in London. There just are airport owners who want to force you to enter their overpriced "duty free" shopping malls. ;-)
At least that's the idea I had when waiting for my flight on Nottingham East-Midlands: My brand-new water bottle was thrown away at the security check, after the check there was only one shop offering water for a price of £ 3.20 per litre. The waiting area was full of shops and noisy. The departure monitors wrote "relax and shop" for pending flights. Relaxing was impossible at that noisy place. The shopping part made me angry considering the insanly high price level of that area.
Disclaimer: Don't take this theory too seriously. Most certainly there really was a prevented assault, but the effects of this prevented assault just are not acceptable for me. This "enhanced" security checks take forever, cause paranoia among flight guests and security personal. Well, and finally I am pretty sure they will not protected me from being killed by a terrorist. If the flight checks are too restrict, terrorists will target other public transportation vehicles to reach a high body count.
