Should the Corrupt be Banned From Flying First-Class?

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Should the Corrupt be Banned From Flying First-Class?

Post by General Mackevili » Sun May 08, 2016 11:14 am

What a stupid idea. They should ban people with kids before they do that.

From BBC News:

"An international anti-corruption conference is being held next week in London, hosted by the Prime Minister David Cameron.

It's a toxic problem, corroding trust in everything from politics to sport to international aid.

But what can be done to stop it? How about a more creative approach to deterrence?

The development charity, One, which has warned of corruption as a "trillion dollar scandal", has come up with ideas for hitting the corrupt oligarchs where it hurts.

In their first class travel.

The charity is suggesting an airline ban for first class travel for those guilty of corruption. Airlines can have restrictions on passengers who have behaved badly on board - so why not have a corruption blacklist?

truly idiotic indeed, why would any business want to retricted themselves to their top paying customers for 20k a pop, where else they need to find 10 customers for 2k a pop, besides, if they are found to be corrupt shouldnt be in jail anyway? Instead of restricting their luxuries only? If they arent sentenced yet of corruption, who are we to judge?

What happens if said corrupted ones own a fair share of the investment portfolio?

I hope the future brings smaller faster planes, with exclusive first class seats throughout the entire plane, like the Concorde was. I'd see no reason to be flying together with cattle, monkeys, white trash and their kids, if at all possible.

Surely the successfully corrupt have their own executive jets ?

Yeah, those are great, but for the long haul, we need something like this.

Ahh the irony. David Cameron hosts a anti corruption confab. Truth is stranger than fiction.
