The new Brazilian Defence minister has just declared that never-ending queues at the airports are the price you pay for safety.
Hold on. If the queues represent any price at all, it has to be the price of incompetence. Because 10 months of queues at the Brazilian airports have brought no safety whatsoever. So much so that president Lula declared yesterday – to the dismay of tourism authorities, I suppose, that every time he takes a plane in Brazil he puts his trust in God. The former Defence minister had already declared that the solution to the air crisis in Brazil involved “a lot of faith and a lot of praying”.
Are you still keen on a trip to Brazil?
