He's pulling your leg.
Curator pal of mine came up to see me last week (he works in the art galleries) telling me how there's a state of daily near paranoia now with all museum and art gallery staff and on the London Underground, with ongoing security drills, new safety spot and search methods, meticulous searching of gallery visitors etc.

So for example, you get some old granny who's just bought her new set of kitchen knives from John Lewis, then fancies a browse round the art gallery to look at a few paintings and av a nice cuppa. She's stopped, detained, questioned, bag confiscated, then followed round the building just in case...
