I flag this article up as an example of the sad state of 'moral courage' in our country. BBC News - Man stabbed defending London bus passengers has 'no regrets' The Ozzie - hats off to him - on a crowded bus, made a stand when no one else did a thing, not even the driver. It appears that everyone sat and tried to ignore it. The result - he gets stabbed twice (once in the ARRSE) The recent Baha Mousa Report highlighted failures due to 'lack of moral courage' Many years ago I was faced with a similar incident on a train, with a drunk abusive passenger. At the time I was pretty fit, remonstrated with him over his behaviour towards other passengers and, when he took a swing at me, pinned him to the table. The Conductor - who had done sweet FA up to that point - reluctantly chucked him off at the next station. I made him apologise to the passengers first. Is it a sign of the times we have to be shown by Australians where our moral compass should point? Please, please tell me that others on this forum have shown 'Moral Courage'. Restore my faith in society.
