FFS. Rail and road travel sees greater access anyway, so is this just to show us that Scotland is now a separate country from the UK. If not, what is the point? national security? Seems like a load of old bollocks to me. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/scotland/article6850591.ece English passengers making internal flights to Scottish airports are being asked to show their passports when they land, police have confirmed. Officers are carrying out routine identity checks on domestic flights under terrorism legislation. This can mean forcing passengers to show passports or other photographic identification. Those arriving on international flights are required to go through passport control, but domestic passengers are usually checked for photographic ID before boarding their plane. The checks came to light after shadow home secretary Chris Grayling was asked to produce his documents when he arrived at Glasgow Prestwick airport on an internal flight. He described the procedure as "utterly and completely unacceptable". "Do we want to end up with border check points at Gretna Green? Of course we need security but there has to be a balance,â he told the Daily Telegraph. Mr Grayling was among five Conservative MPs who were asked for identification at the airport on Wednesday.
