BA link to drug smuggling ring


Well, it beats nicking miniatures from the in-flight bar.

Well...British Airways has always billed itself as the World's Favourite Airline.

I guess that the Drug Dealers have voted with their bricks of cocaine.

Sorry, zoosh old boy - they don't ship blow in bricks. Since it's a powder, it's usually put into some container or other (condoms? ).

And if it's crack, we call it "rock", but it's not in bricks, either.

Now, grass - yeah, that comes in bricks.

Glad I wasn't out on the road during YOUR Jag test-drive!

Well, I wasn't actually on the road during my test drive. It was more like a test flight.
