Unforeseen effects of airport security

From the BBC website.

Courteney Dane, who is travelling back to Australia, said: "I'm worried about the cost and the fact I've got a 24 hour flight with nothing to read. I'm not really worried about the security, it's just a nuisance."

Aargh! I couldn't even get on a bus without a book. Let alone without the life support system that is my handbag.
