Dear Jeremy Clarkson,
I am writing to you in regards to your blog ‘I Hate Airports’ which expresses   concerns about security control within airports themselves.
Firstly, I disagree with many points that were raised throughout your blog. In many unfortunate cases we come across terrorists in which plan to kill. The idea of toughening airport security in order to stop criminals as such potentially saves many lives. Your concept of ‘ignoring terrorists’ can lead to many lives put under risk; and within these people we could lose very important professionals as well as losing money. Many people board planes in order to go on holiday possibly on their own or with families; and others may go abroad to work or migrate. Why should innocent people be put through the danger of losing their lives along with their families all because of boarding an aircraft full of strangers which wasn’t checked through by security? Surely you would agree that something like this clearly cannot be ignored.
Another point which I picked up upon reading your blog was your inference of the deprivation of essentials such as shoes, belt, laptop, toothpaste etc. by airport security. I think that these are appropriate measures taken by security patrols at the airport in order to prevent danger to passengers within the aircraft, it ensures safer travel, and also reduces the risk of sending harmful substances to others abroad and back which could also lead to the risk of drug abuse, bomb plotting and sales of goods which haven’t been taxed. Don’t you think that airport security helps reduce crime?
Alternatively, within your blog I also read to your exaggeration that ‘I will have to stand in a queue which stretched back to Macclesfield.’ From this I understand that queues within airports are quite long, but we live in Britain and money is a bigger issue as we currently stand in recession along with high rates of unemployment. To ensure customer satisfaction airports should employ more security...
