    Businessman sues BA 'for treating men like perverts'

    Businessman Mirko Fischer sues British Airwars 'for treating men like perverts' | Mail Online

    This is totally over the top. British Airways forbids any male to sit next to a child who is either unaccompanied or in a different aisle than their parent. The British have caved into full-blown paranoia.

    A businessman is suing British Airways over a policy that bans male passengers from sitting next to children they don't know - even if the child's parents are on the same flight.

    Mirko Fischer has accused the airline of branding all men as potential sex offenders and says innocent travellers are being publicly humiliated.

    In line with the policy, BA cabin crew patrol the aisles before take-off checking that youngsters travelling on their own or in a different row from their parents are not next to a male stranger.

    If they find a man next to a child or teenager they will ask him to move to a different seat. The aircraft will not take off unless the passenger obeys.

    Wow, that is ridiculously paranoid. I don't blame the man for filing this lawsuit, I would be offended too!

    That is just beyond ridiculous.

    Maybe I'm just paranoid (which is entirely possible), but I always feel a little bit uncomfortable when I take my young daughter to a playground. I'm just waiting for someone to think I'm some sort of child molester hanging out there waiting to pounce.

    Yeah, better not take any pictures of your children either. You could be arrested for child porn!


    Or maybe it's just the military that does that.

    Do you mean the guy who took pictures of his kids playing in the bath and got busted for kiddie porn? I think that was a civilian.

    But yeah, God forbid I should see her naked. I must be some sorta prevert!!

    Western society in general (not just the British) seems to be devolving into mass paranoia often times. It's annoying.
