Gross Functional Overlay: Shahid Exaggerated Five-Fold?

"Don't You Know Who I Am?" Minister Shahid Malik MP is now getting roughed up by the Tory press who report US sources, relying on CCTV records, that he was detained for just eight minutes, not the 40 that he claimed.

Meanwhile in a rat-a-tat tit-for-tat exchange the Minister's people are insisting that a 20 to 30 minute wait is being disregarded. Airport Security are saying he was selected on ticket-based protocols. Neither by religion nor racial profiling. Malik is saying he had a verbal apology from the Ambassador Tuttle. And more Americans are saying that this should not have been made public. And that Malik shouldn't have complained anyway when Airport Security is so important. Which is in fact more tits than tats.

Hat tip: Conservative Home.
