Well it is silly season now, so I guess that is why Norman Baker, the Lib Dem MP for Lewes has come out with quite possibly the dumbest idea of the day. Apparently he wants airlines to be fined if 95% of passengers cannot check-in within 15 minutes.
Presumably next he will be calling for fines for passengers. After all, what happens when all the passengers turn up at the same time and late? Stupid idea, totally impratical and totally unworkable because it's the passengers that cause the check-in queues most of the time.
Perhaps he could start fining the Highways Agency for traffic jams on the way to the airport too?
