As you know by now, the obsession with security drives me mad. And so do politicians fostering or exploiting this obsession.
The Mirror - no, I am not reading that - reported, how one of the current brainless "security rules" came to bite a politician in the a***. And not just any politician, no, your very own Home Office minister Baroness Neville-Jones.
Following two quotes:
Britain's anti-terror chief launched an astonishing attack on airport security staff after they stopped her taking a banned amount of liquid onto a plane.
1st idiocy: Your home security minister does not know her own rules.
The Baroness was ticked off by border staff, who did not recognise her.
2nd idiocy: Your security people do not know their boss.
But she took offence when they told her how important security is.
The 71-year-old Baroness, known for being haughty, ranted: “Of course I know how important it is, I’m the Security Minister.”
3rd idiocy: If she did know the rules, why wouldn't she comply?
Or, possible 4th idiocy, does she think, they do not apply to her?

In honor of that politician and her perfect example of arrogance, stupidity and brainlessness I herewith create the label "Idiot of the Day" and declare Mrs. Neville-Jones our first recipient of that medal.
