"The best way to defeat terrorists and extremists is for ordinary people to continue to live their lives as normal. Because of the additional security restrictions imposed by the Government last Thursday, the shambles at the London airports has been anything but normal.
"The UK Government successfully led the return to normality of the London Underground within two days of the 7/7 terrorist attacks. It is important that they now restore security at the London airports to normality and remove some of these nonsensical, and (from a security perspective) totally ineffective restrictions which were introduced last week. If they don’t, and if they allow these restrictions stay in place, then the Government will have handed the extremists an enormous PR victory." —Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary
