Leicester City Helicopter Crash

Means **** all to whom? Not my generation, nor probably yours, but it means quite a bit to the younger generations.

If a politician, sportsman, actor, journalist, serviceman, broadcaster or pretty much anyone in the public eye tweets something offensive, eg "Who care about XYZs?", where XYZ represents any social, national, sexually oriented, or ethnic group, they are well and truly in the shit, to the point that they will probably lose their position.

Not saying it's right, by any stretch (or wrong for that matter), but "means **** all" is a bit of a blinkered view.
It means something to bellends who think it means something, loads of young people look at it occasionally they dont live their lives by it.

The only reason people have fake outrage over Twitter or Facebook is because the Press usually tells everyone how outrageous it is. An example being that bint who threatened to paint over the mural of dead soldiers getting a degree. How did 99% of the country know that? Because the newspapers told them, not because they followed the silly cow on Twitter.

I don't disagree. I've never really understood the idea of sending a text to basically the entire world. But it's undeniable that "tweeting" the wrong thing can be career Endex for many. Including servicemen/women.

Only if the press decide to tell everyone, just like they used to print pretend outrage stories before twitter.
There are 300+ million users, doubtless tens of thousands spout shite every day, no one cares about the majority because no one knows unless they Press tell them.
An Manc fanzine said something about the helicopter crash that could be viewed as derogatory, I wouldnt know about it if a newspaper hadnt printed how outrageous it was.
 
Well I am very sorry for the people of Leicester and Leicester City FC, regardless of our inability to agree.
 
A statement from Leicester police says:

"Five people are believed to have died when a helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium yesterday evening (Saturday 27 October).

The five people were on board the helicopter when the incident happened. While formal identification has not yet taken place, they are believed to be Leicester City Football Club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, two members of his staff, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and passenger Izabela Roza Lechowicz."
The BBC have confirmed it as well

Daily Mirror - Hero Pilot saved 100s.

Poor guy died, but I suspect that he couldnt aim for anything. He was certainly a very highly qualified helicopter pilot but it seems like he had a totally uncontrollable aircraft and it just went down.
 
No disrespect to Eric, but from the moment that whatever happened to cause the helicopter to rapidly rotate he was just another passenger. I doubt if he had any control over where it was going to end up.
He had very little height and very little airspeed to play with, and a spinning helicopter to contend with.
Very sad.
 
I'm wondering who will be the first chav to get nicked for stealing some of the shirts/teddy bears/scarves/other crap
There's bound to be one.

Dan Roan from the BBC is in trouble too - he was apparently caught on camera (believing he was off air) discussing how the guy's 'personal assistant' was actually his mistress. He's been getting an absolute shit-ton of abuse on Twitter for it and presumably the normal complaint emails are already flooding in to the BBC and national press.

To be honest, it was a tragedy, and I feel for the blokes family, but LCFC will not suddenly collapse. By all accounts, his son is going to take up the reigns, and he was already involved in a lot of the day to day stuff anyway.

I had to turn off talk sport this morning on my commute to work, as the grief fest is getting chuffing ridiculous, I like listening to Alan Brazil on a morning, but the way he is going on, you'd think it was his brother!

I'm sure i'll get crap from the grief whores, but life goes on.

I can just see the headline: “Old billionaire in tasty mistress shocker”

I was told that it's almost compulsory in Thailand for men of a certain status ('Hi So') to have a 'Mia Noi' or 'minor wife. There are even rules of etiquette for the process: if you buy your mia noi a silver necklace, you must buy your wife a gold one etc. Thai wives don't like it but they tolerate it as long as its discreet. Hence giving her a job title.

And yes of course I would have...

The converse of that is that Thai surgeons are world renowned for their skill in penis re-attachment - that's if the wife hasn't fed it to the ducks first...
