It’s a farce

IT’S now a couple of weeks or so since the Gatwick airport debacle and it’s turned into a total farce. I will declare now that I have a personal interest in this as it was on December 20 … the day that our daughter was flying from said airport to spend Christmas with us on a trip to Portugal. The thing I want to know is what happened? I mean, what the hell really happened?

The whole place closed down because an overgrown toy was allegedly seen in the restricted airspace. Now, as I’m not totally stupid, if there was a drone buzzing about, they obviously had to close the airport until it was found and forcibly got rid of it.

But they couldn’t find it. And, as of now, there are no official pictures of the said drone and, in fact, they are now saying that there may not have even been a drone at all!

The UK police have zero, none, nada proof that there were any drones at all that led to over 1,000 flights being cancelled. Not to mention the couple that were arrested, named, and then freed because they had nothing to do with the non-existent drone were charged with nothing – well how could they be if it never existed?

I’m not a big conspiracy theorist, but there is something not quite right here. My phone can tell me where my car is parked when I can’t remember where I left it in the car park. Technology knows if I don’t have a TV licence and I’m watching EastEnders in my bungalow in East Cheam. If all that is possible then surely the might of the Police and Military should be able to get, at worst case, a picture of this drone and, dare I suggest, find a way that this type of hoax never happens again
