As you know, the Brits have banned carry-on baggage and have required that almost everything go in the hold. A friend of mine who lives near London and works for British Airways at Heathrow made the following very apt point:

"Anyone spot the irony in the situation today? After Lockerbie we have had it drummed into us 'No electronic items in the hold--must be in hand baggage because this improves security'. And today it is 'No electronic items in the cabin; must be in the hold because this improves security'."
