The Independent reports that Nanny USA now wants monitor those who fly to its neighbours:
"One million British travellers planning to fly to Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico this year face the risk of being turned away at the airport – at the insistence of the US Department of Homeland Security.
New rules require British Airways and other airlines flying to certain airports outside America to submit passengers' personal data to US authorities. The information is checked against a "No Fly" list containing tens of thousands of names. Even if the flight plan steers well clear of US territory, travellers whom the Americans regard as suspicious will be denied boarding."It seems to me that a little bit of reciprocity is called for here, namely that the details of US citizens flying to the UK and its neighbours (ie Europe) should be requested pre flight; and that the UK be given the right to block US citizens from flying if their names appear on UK Nanny's no fly lists.
