Asiana 214 and Political Correctness

Guys watch this on the link - the newsreader so carefully pronounces the name - ho lee fook !!!! (need to wipe damned cornflakes off the screen !)

Three dead so far, all of them Chinese kids (one of them seems to have been run over by a fire engine having survived the crach). A little bit silly for a news station to make fun of a fatal accident, they're not supposed to be Mad TV.

Maybe not so far from the truth. Read this on PPrune, about the standards of Korean pilots:
Asiana flight crash at San Francisco - Page 63 - PPRuNe Forums

There appears to be a lot of problems with aspects of the pilot/crew training in both KAL and Asiana.

And the conclusion to draw from that, is that we all have to take some responsibilty for our own personal safety.

For example, I have always felt one good guiding principle, was never to sail on boats, where the ships officers were either Greek or Italian.

It was the fact they felt they had to apologise for it was the PC element.

If it was one of our TV stations or newspapers then no doubt a charge under the vast array of racial discrimination legislation would be pending.

Funny, very very funny. Always good to find humour in tragedy and its not racism its simply a play on their names. People need to lighten up but you do have to give the newsreader the donkey of the year award.

Yes because if they called Captain Smith, Captain Jones on screen they wouldn't apologise would they?

But never mind that, it's ARRSE so you're right, it's political correctness gorn maaaaad mate! They go over there they fly their planes! I dunno, all gorn to pot since the Queen Mum died Gord blesser.
