Do you see what I see? Heavens no! It would appear that the logo for Southend Airport incorporates three scimitars. What is this: the UK’s first Shari’ah compliant airport? Oh dear, this fevered Islamisation business is getting out of hand. I’ll be seeing pictures of a smiling Saladin instead of Colonel Sanders on KFC takeaways next. Quick, pray bring me ice and water with which to abate this fever!
Well, according to the BBC it would appear that Southend Airport is about to get a major boost from Easyjet, which is scheduling an additional 70 flights a week from the location. Come now Stelios, will you not have a word with the airport authorities about a new logo, for after all, being of Greek Cypriot extraction you can’t be that keen on the sight of Turkish scimitars, surely? Hmm, then again, looking at the surname of the Monaco-based tax exile, perhaps he might not object: Haji-Ioannou. Haji! Time for more ice and water methinks.
