Agreed.

But the good news about this UK test is that it's voluntary.

Randomly picked passengers are asked if they will volunteer to be scanned by the machine.
And something tells me that the BAA security people don't punish those who refuse.

Here in the Fatherland, the surly government employee would just say "shut up and walk thru the x-ray or YOU DON'T FLY."
