Re: Gatwick is a big place
Your linked article on moral panic posits various tests and this situation fails on all of them.
Firstly, we haven't identified a group to demonise here, unless it is "all drone pilots" which would be ridiculous.
Secondly, there's no gap between the threat and the objective threat as this isn't an objective threat, it really has stopped over 100,000 people from travelling. The hazard is small, a downing of a flight, but the risk is very large, the consequent loss of life.
Thirdly, there's no fluctuation of attention over time. It's just happened and it's been ongoing.
Mostly importantly there's no public hysteria.
Conspiracy theories are invariably posited by nutters and believed by the pathologically credulous. Trying to back up your insanity with totally inappropriate material simply demonstrates your foolishness.
