Shady Foreigners Removed from Plane.

Sunday, August 20th, 2006 at 15:29 by RJ Barker

Passengers on an A320 Airbus from Malaga demanded the removal of two men they considered ‘Suspicious’.

The Conservative spokesman for homeland security, Patrick Mercer, described the incident as “a victory for terrorists”. Then went on to say, “These people on the flight have been terrorised into behaving irrationally. For those unfortunate two men to be victimised because of the colour of their skin is just nonsense.”

David Learmont, an expert on aviation laid some of the blame on the media but admitted, “There is a problem here - if people get too paranoid because someone is sweating and sitting white-knuckled because they are afraid of flying, then other passengers sitting nearby are going to think that they’re about to explode a bomb.”

In an apparent victory of nervousness over good sense the two men were removed from the flight and questioned for some hours by authorities. Although details of just what it was that raised the ire of the terrified sun and sea searching travellers remains sketchy. TheSlant hopes that the two men were doing a little more than ’sitting there being a bit Arabic looking’ and ‘talking in a funny manner’. If not, expect terrorists to ground whole fleets of aircraft just by whispering to each other about the duty free prices.
