Follow Up: The British Balkers

Source: Hot Air

From this story. I'm quite certain you recall the British passengers who abruptly deplaned refusing to fly with two dodgy looking Muslim gentlemen? A certain British authority excoriated them as "racists?"

Ahem...
Mr Wearden, who was returning from a nine-day holiday with his wife and three children, said the first he became aware anything unusual was happening was as the plane was due to take off and “the family in front of us just got off”…

The captain then spoke to the two men and returned to the cockpit with their passports, said Mr Wearden.

“We were then asked to get off the plane and go back to the airport where they did a full security check.”

It was then, he said, that his wife Susanne began talking to another passenger who said she had sat next to the two men.

“She said she had heard them saying it was the last 30 minutes of their lives,” said Mr Wearden.

“It may well be that the two simply thought they were being funny, but it perhaps better explains the passenger reaction.”
Over-reaction?
