    LoL. Too hot to handle.

    Yes if they suspect you are up to no good. ie drug smuggling or worse. not for no reason though.

    For no reason so without suspicion. Just random searches apparently

    Pandas are the sexiest of all the bears

    Without reason or without official reason?

    If you ask nicely.

    you can always refuse to have search however you will then be denied entry

    There are some very strange questions appearing on here recently. It's like whoever is writing them is on the Wacky Backy.

    Panda out

    I always understood a strip search requires the permission of a very senior person or magistrate, it cannot be done on a whim.

    Is Deeky on duty? (_;)

    I normally insist on one.

    Depends how many oz's of Columbia's finest you have inside you

    They won't search you if you're a minger. X)

    I would assume that they would have to have a reason to carry out the search.

    Where are you going - Amsterdam is a bit funny! They do body scans and still like to stick their hands down your trousers!

    Maybe in UK, different in other countries.

    This makes me giggle. We lived in Middle East for 19 years, no booze allowed country, hubby came back from a USA trip and over indulged on the flight (and probably pre-flight), he was very wobbly on arrival and got a very thorough inspection (inside and out - if you catch my drift...!!!) He has never drank alcohol on a flight since. So, depending where you are, yes you most certainly can be strip searched.

    Yes, they can also strip your car down to its component parts, then tell YOU to get all the scrap moved out of their inspection area.

    Border control have SCARY powers.

    (Seen the above happen at Dover - guy got snarky, so they tore his car apart)
