"Who do you think you are?"

"Some kind of superstar?"
-- The Spice Girls

Prince Andrew, 4th in line to King of Australia, recently refused to be searched when travelling through Melbourne airport. He later relented and was found to be clear.

Frankly, good. If people are going to be searched at airports, it should apply to everyone. In a civilised society of laws, all people have to follow the law, including the high and mighty. That's one of the checks-and-balances. Anyone who feels they are "too important" to go through what the rest of us have to endure is unfit for public office.
