Anybody had first-hand experience of the airport style security at ferry ports? More to the point, the morons who staff these check points... I travelled to Dublin last week from Holyhead and rolled up at the Stena terminal as a walk-on passenger/client sans holdall. Walked into the almost empty security zone, passed through the x-ray machine and was royally turned over by an assortment of yellow jacketed, badge-bearing assholes barking questions as though I was the local recruiting Sergeant for Taliban UK Inc; vigorously frisked by some rabid bummer who took too much enjoyment than was comfortable in his task followed by another wankshaft masquerading as plod (I couldn't properly identify) who, upon discovering I wasn't carrying my passport (you don't need one to travel to Eire), tried to take my driving licence off me then threw a piece of card at me ordering me to "fill out this form" (piece of blue card) telling me "it's the law" - you wouldn't believe the amount and level of info they wanted. I got the impression they were bored and were dying for me to give them an opportunity to ruin my day. I expect this style of heavy handedness at airports - but Holyhead to Dublin fer focks sake ??? Icing on the cake: I came back four days later only to walk straight off the ferry and out onto the streets of Holyhead - not one single person or check, just walked down the gantry and out into the bus station - focking incredible!!
