TRAVELLERS sometimes have to show their travel documents five times when (1)_______ [flying] a flight: at check-in, at security, then occasionally at outbound immigration, before another check when boarding. Finally there is passport control at the destination. Each is a potential queue. So regular flyers will be interested in anything that might speed up the process.

In Tokyo, the government has been (4)_____ [observing] facial-recognition technology in two airports since 2014. It hopes to introduce the system in full in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

THIS was meant to be the week when a proud, sovereign nation served notice that it wanted to leave the overbearing, unrepresentative union to which it had long been (6)______ [held] . And so it was—but not in quite the way that Theresa May had imagined. Britain’s prime minister had planned to (7)______[exit] Article 50 of the European Union treaty, beginning the two-year process of Britain’s exit from the EU. But she was forced to delay her plans when Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, (8)______ [criticised] her by announcing that she would seek a new referendum on Scottish independence.

The threat of a second constitutional earthquake in as many years is the latest reminder of Brexit’s unintended consequences.

But the lesson for Scots from Brexit is more complex than Ms Sturgeon suggests. The (10)_______ [detail] she puts forward for remaining in the EU highlight the weaknesses in their case for independence.
