It's anger management Friday

All those anxiety-causing time-consuming rules at American airports concerning your need to be able to prove that you are who all your documents say you are don't apply if you are Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi getting through security with clearly invalid boarding pass and apparently just a college ID card.

But all that airport securocrat apparatus does come in handy when a knuckle-dragging flight attendant takes a personal dislike to a passenger.

All those UK speech-based visa bans don't apply if you are Raed Salah, just showing up at Heathrow arrivals and carrying on to do your thing.

And all those rules about complying your UK visa purpose when in the UK don't apply if you show up for graduate study at a Scottish university but actually pretend to be a lesbian blogger in Damascus with a book to sell.

And last but not least, being in the country with a pending asylum claim is apparently no obstacle to trying to hit the legal jackpot with a trumped-up rape accusation that has cost DSK at least one career and perhaps two.

Have a good weekend.
