It's a widespread strike among the usual suspects - railways, ATC, anything where government pays the wages.

We got delayed about 1hr 30 minutes which was bad enough but then when we landed at around 8.45pm we had Faro Airport to contend with.
Over 40 minutes to get through passport control where there was only 2 booths open trying to cope with 3 or 4 flights.
The eye recognition things were all showing green but they were blocked off so you couldn't use them.

I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.

Last Friday it took us 40 minutes to get through passport control at Faro and it was chaotic with queues merging, passengers moving taped lane markers, etc.
When we reached the official it was a glance at the passport photo and a nod through. No checking or scanning at all - probably 3 seconds each!

So much for the heightened security checks required to preserve the Western way of life and our democracies. Still, does it really matter when you can cross the border by train, coach or car without anyone so much as bothering?

I think all those golfers in silly shorts are a major threat to national peace and stability. They must be controlled!

I've seen a big chap on a bike around town in WW2 It Aint Half Hot Mum style shorts. Frightening. Whom could he be?
