As an Irishman who for years always seemed to be pulled over at Heathrow for an 'extra' security check (even though I was travelling on business and usually suited & booted) I do hate any personal intrusion but since 9/11 it's been the same everywhere with regard to OTT security.
The problem is we wouldn't need the security if there weren't so many nutters about that are willing to hurt others for their own selfish reasons.
Just look at the yahoos today who were letting off fireworks when the wreaths were being laid in Islandbridge . . . tools, it's them and their likes that generate the fuss, that requires the security, that annoys the rest of us.
But I'm hoping that this visit is the last nail in the coffin of the extremists in Ireland and it's a building block Daz towards the day when we won't have to be frisked on our own soil or that of any other country.
If we wait til this 'hullabuloo' isn't required then we'll have a long time to wait . . .
