BA surcharges

I have just purchased a round trip ticket from BA (Beijing/LHR).

On the breakdown of additional charges I note the following:

Fuel surcharge: 115 pounds
Insurance and Security surcharge: 5 pounds

Does anyone know what the insurance/security charge for and is the fuel surcharge compatible with other carriers?

And, finally, I have been charged another 20 pounds for the privilege of reserving a seat one way (presumably it will be 40 pounds both ways). I know Singapore Air does not charge a fee for this online service, but not sure regarding other carriers.

Asking out of interest, but any replies will influence my next purchase!

Thanks
