    But why were they needed anyway? "Yeah, we've a got a drunk woman restrained on the floor" doesn't exactly make you think of the possibility of a terrorist attack.

    I thought that was quite obvious. She was that drunk they thought that she needed a Typhoo(n) or two.

    Can you imagine if they weren't scrambled but were needed?

    Because the message that was sent wasn't "we have a drunk woman restrained on the floor." the message that was sent was "Flight deck secure, cockpit door not compromised.". The air traffic controllers took that to mean that an attempt to access the cockpit had been made and so called in the military, since ANY attempt to breach the cockpit post 9/11 will scramble a military response.

    It is more what the plane they were needed for would be doing i.e. flying into a building that he's getting at, not what the fighter jets would otherwise be doing if they were needed but weren't scrambled.

    The thing is - you actually had to explain that to him.

    He got confused over the use of "literally" earlier...

    I read the first and last pages of this thread, and that's twice that stockhausen's mentioned fighter jets flying in the Lake District. I'm guessing there's some anti-Tory rant lurking below the surface there, just bursting to get out.

    EDIT: Sorry, first mention on page 2 :)

    She looks older than 26! Alcohol/drug use?

    Solid comeback. You should be a politician with arguments like that.

    You may be revising that statement after 5 years of a Boris Johnson government :p

    Please God that we get Boris, (of whom I’m not a fan), rather than the crypto commie and his Marxist sidekick.
