My wife (a sculptress) was stopped at GRN this year with a sculpting tool in her handbag - about 6" long, blunt, rounded spatular ends.

The Guardia said it was obvious the tool didn't represent any sort of threat and she could take it on board.

However she knew that the attitude for the return journey at STN would be completely different and as the tool was very expensive the Guardia brought her over to me (waiting to see her depart) and she handed it back to me.

Consistency, anyone ?
