Jon Snow perfectly summed up everyone’s thoughts on the Gatwick drone closure

Flights from Gatwick airport were severely delayed when drones caused a 36-hour shut-down of the airport and lots of people were angry.
Tens of thousands of passengers were stranded Gatwick, many of whom would have been trying to get away for Christmas, while police tried to hunt down the drone operators. But not many people expressed their frustration quite as well as Chanel 4 presenter Jon Snow. Taking to Twitter, he wrote: If London’s second Airport Gatwick can be defeated by a couple of drones... shutting the entire place down for 12 hours+ what does it say of the UK's much-vaunted defences upon which we spend so many billions?. A couple of hours later he wrote: Gatwick Airport has now been shut for 14 hours, what if the drones had carried an armament?.... Pity Britain! unable to intercept, disable, or combat these devices and yet we spend more on Defence than any nation in Europe! Will Brexit sort it? And the tweets kept coming throughout the day.

Re drones paralysing Gatwick Airport: In the Second World War Spitfire pilots nudged V1 rockets fired by the Nazis and pushed them off course with their wings. If they could do that then, whatever has happened to today's RAF plumbing?!

Gatwick now to be closed 7.00pm or later. 18 hours since two drones first appeared above the runway: UK defences still powerless tho' officially warned in Lord Harris's report in 2016: Mis-handling Brexit is one thing: but failing to defend the nation: is far more serious.

So far the origin, nature, and identity of those who are flying the drones onto Gatwick's runway are not known. The threat is there ..armed police and troops are now finally trying to shoot the drones down.

OK folks! 19 hours after drones shut London's second airport - GATWICK, the Ministry of Defence has finally officially called the army in! What does it take to get Britain's costly defences up and running?!

The Gatwick drone crisis was merely a dress rehearsal for Brexit

#Dronegate is an absolute embarrassment for this country. Our police, army and airport security defeated by a toy! Any half-decent clay shooter would have brought this to an end in half an hour! #GatwickAirport #GatwickDrone
Admittedly, some people disagreed with Snow and said the delays were necessary to ensure everyone's safety.

Jon, this is what expensive security looks like. It looks like precaution, diligence & unfortunately, delays. You know what cheap or lack of security looks like? It looks like plane debris and grieving families.
