I expect there are lots of people cursing the recent snow. none more so that Paul Chambers who got himself arrested as an indirect consequence of the recent weather-related chaos in the UK.

He was due to take a flight from Robin Hood Airport to Ireland when he found out there was a liklihood the flight would be cancelled due to snow. He was arrested & held for seven hours by police after he posted the following entry on Twitter: “C—! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high.”

He’s had his PC, laptop & mobile phone siezed, been banned from the airport for life & been suspended from his job. A gross over-reaction by Her Majesty’s finest or actions worthy of a proper & thorough investigation into potential terrorism? Ally Fogg over at the Guardian is very concerned.
