Just to show that the Not the Nine O’Clock News sketch was merely ahead of its time, a shocking and shameful story on the BBC news site.

Well done, passengers! Another victory for terrorism and Daily Mail stereotypes.

PS. It won’t surprise you to learn that the Daily “Hurrah for the Blackshirts!” Mail reported this story favourably.
