Boy, 11, boards plane to Italy at Manchester Airport without passport Watch
The SUN seem to agree with you judging by their front page glamorisation of his behaviour
Answering the question about his parents punishment regime ... looks like none ... sell the story instead
He still went through the standard security checks just like everyone else - they are pretty much unavoidable. I don't see how he could pose a security risk any more so than someone who went on the same flight legitimate documents.
Still, the fact he managed to even get past the boarding gate is pretty astonishing. I remember having my passport normally checked 2-3 times before I get to that stage, followed by the boarding card.
There is no reason for it to be either - there is virtually no-one who is allowed in the UK but isn't allowed in other EU countries.
It does no harm to be sceptical and imagine the worse, I would much rather use events such as the child flying to Rome to spark questions about procedures and security rather than some terrorist attack. I know he got checked however, my point is that he go on the plan without a boarding pass or passport. Now imagine that was someone with the sole aim of sabotaging the safety of the passengers (imagine they did get through security with a small knife in their hand luggage and it went unnoticed.)
PS- Are you stalking me
And finally, why would they even need to be on an airplane to stab passengers? They could just as easily get on a bus with zero security checks - and would have a far better chance of escaping afterwards as well, as opposed to a plane where there is no way out.
