Man thrown off plane for 'terror' t-shirt
An Australian has been thrown off a flight for wearing a T-shirt branding George Bush a terrorist.

Allen Jasson was barred from a Qantas flight from Melbourne to London for his apparently offensive choice of clothing.

The T-shirt bore a pictured of US President Bush and the slogan 'World's number one terrorist'.

Airport staff at first told Mr Jasson to change into a Qantas shirt - then, when he refused, refused to let him fly.

The 55-year-old IT specialist is now threatening to sue the airline, saying he had worn the shirt on previous domestic flights without a problem.

Mr Jasson, who lives in London but had been visiting family in Australia, said: 'I am not prepared to go without the T-shirt.

'I might forfeit the $2,500 fare but I have made up my mind I would rather stand up for the principle of free speech.

Qantas insisted any comments, spoken or on clothing, would 'not be tolerated' if they had potential to offend other passengers or threaten security.
