  1. Jolly good.
    How did they think they could get away with it in this age of near instant communication ie. Facebook.

  2. Even if someone sets all their facebook privacy settings to “friends only”, they are being very naive indeed if they think posting on it is private. Only ever post something you are prepared to stand by if challenged on it. I think that goes for any posts on any website.

  3. There are plenty of people who want to be pilots or first officers (or any job thats out there), who wont be racist, homophobic or just generally rude whilst doing it…. Suspension is a great start to this, but lets go all the way and let them join the rest of us in the real world where other people feelings, choices and opinions matters! Maybe then they might be less judgemental over other peoples lives (obviously they were feeling over secure in their comfortable well paid jobs, looking down on us bum boys and w**k*rs!).

    everyone ought to be more tolerant:

    these poor guys, scabbing for Walsh, had to deal with paying passengers, and be nice (ugh) to them. They also had to mix with trolley-dollies as EQUALS (horror)

    Wlash really needs to give extra big bonuses!

    (that was sarcasm, by the way)

  5. I still think that peopl’s private lives should not result in work punishments, so long as it done not translate to haraasment/discrimination of anyone at work.
