In fact, if his tweet is anything to go by, he had an absolutely horrendous time at one of London's plethora of airports.
Put it this way, if a stranger insisted on pawing my baby and then chucked her food into the bin, I would probably cause a riot and get removed from customs.
Thanks Gatwick security! Some might think body-searching a baby and binning his bottle was over zealous and weird, but not me! #ScaryBaby

Yep, there's "thorough" and then there's "probably letting the power go to your head a bit." I've been asked to drink from my baby's bottle at an airport before, which is fine, I'd do anything ahead of "binning" her feed, especially at that age (baby Art was born on February 5th) - bottle/breast is their only form of sustenance.
And every parent knows the fear that creeps in when the child goes from "snuffle, snuffle" to full on "WWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HUUNNGGGGHHWWWAAAAAAAAAAH" and NOBODY wants that on a plane. Just ask Ellen.
As for insisting on physically searching the child, well, they may be responsible for explosive poo-bombs, but that's about it.
