It’ll cost money and it won’t work – Darling’s upbeat message

The BBC reports that trials will take place of x-ray machines and body scanners at railway stations. This will slow up passengers and ensure that money is diverted away from services, while also providing no extra security (since not all stations can or will be covered).

Alastair Darling’s view: “You cannot have a completely closed system on the underground or the railways for instance – it just wouldn’t work.”

X-ray machines at stations = just wouldn’t work. You read it here second.
