Pudding fan caught in terrorism red tape assaults airport security

They can take his pudding from his cold, dead, hands…

As he returned to Hong Kong from a sight seeing trip, a Chinese man had four 250 gm puddings in his luggage.  Puddings he meant to share with his family.  

But anti-terrorism legislation limits any liquid to 100 gm per container.

The confiscation of the pudding led to the man being upset, and he has been arrested for [allegedly] assaulting airport security staff.

Pudding man.  Pudding.  The terrorist have already won.

    100g / container = protecting local producers … terrorism is a bit of a stretch bud.

    100g would probably be a healthier serving size

    I can’t understand how the lotus eaters act all suprised and upset when the punters don’t buy into their water bottles are dangerous message.

    A droid at Sydney airport took away a 90% used tube of toothpaste. He said the nominal size ‘counted’ not the squeezed size.

    What price freedom.

    What are they really trying to achieve, can somebody tell me, it’s not about freedom when you have to give that up for safety.At best it is employment for a bunch of unemployable Muppets.
    The escalating world wide cost of all this ineffective security as apposed to the potential damage, it just does not add up.
    I used to think of it as, the terrorist having won, but know I think it something more sinister like Governments or similar trying to control there populations.

      Really? You think Governments “might” be trying to control their populations? FFS take a look and H1 & H2’s last 9 years and see if you can come to a conclusion!
