This story - which may actually be a thinly disguised re-write of an article from elsewhere, opens the door to a much wider debate - and many more sources of information of varying degrees of reliability
and credibility. But there is an overall thrust....

For all aircrew and other travellers (which is, of course, pretty much all of us) - the US Border Security says that it has the same rights as Australia's Customs to examine the contents of portable data devices without warrant (remember various aircrew have been arrested over pornography on their laptops going into Aus?)

Nope.

Pirelli made a good decision for the Bahrain race: take two tyre compounds that are very similar. That negated pretty much all the pit-lane decisions that have led to what basically amounts to racing by remote control. But all was not rosy.

Criticism of Margaret Thatcher is often based on flawed reasoning - and false statements that have been too-often repeated. Nigel Morris-Cotterill, Head, The Anti Money Laundering Network, ultimate owner of ChiefOfficers.Net presents a balanced viewpoint. Actually, he says, she created a business-friendly environment. How can that be a bad thing?
