uk introducing crazy suitcase law

In a leaked document it has been revealed that Britain are to introduce new laws affecting suitcases from 2010. Standard suitcases will be introduced which are in line with policies on security and cutting down on ‘greenhouse’ gases.

The suitcases will be weightless and thus, it is argued, drastically reducing the amount of weight being transported. They will also be see through and hence it will be difficult, it is argued, to hide explosives or contraband.

Talks are already being conducted with UK artists on what to do with the surplus of suitcases that will be arriving from all over the world. For instance, you can fly into the UK with your own suitcases but not leave with them. Instead, people will have to purchase the new suitcase. Artists are expected to bid for projects that will turn the mountain of suitcases into famous UK landmarks and be on display around Heathrow Airport ie Nelson’s Column, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and the Forth Bridge. They will be built to scale, and, it is argued, become even more famous and visited than the originals.

An additional benefit of the new suitcase is that it will be completely biodegradable, on immersion in water it evaporates

Does this thread have anything to do remotely with the how to introduce oneself on a nude beach thread?

In other words, why should people enter Britain clothed? Isn't this a way to help terrorists hide their weapons?

(BTW: how many more hours before 04/02 comes around?)
