I would imagine it's connected to his (LTNman's) views on the subject that begins with "B" and ends in "it" discussion of which ought really to be limited to Jet Blast

Wizzair has profited massively from the avalanche of immigrants from Eastern Europe since 2004. That avalanche is not universally popular.
Certain posters on this thread have taken exception to LTNman's widely-shared views by posting insults aimed at him. I guess they haven't heard of democracy and freedom of speech.

LGS6753,

I don't always agree with LTNman's posts, especially when he seems to gain a certain satisfaction at the difficulties
sometimes experienced by other airports, however his recent posts regarding Wizzair were measured and honest.

It says so much about our country these days that a good and honest man cannot express an opinion without being vilified by the sad thought police. If freedom of expression is being strangled by the professionally offended, then what does our country stand for?

Anyway about Wizzair......!

Wow - some deeply unpleasant left-wing anti-free speech posts on the previous page. Shocking. And - darren1 - the "Daily Fail" - how unoriginal and stupid. Perhaps you should review how many copies the Daily Mail sells compared to your favoured publication. Please tell us what that is? Or preferably - perhaps those- like you -and others on the previous page - who make extremist left-wing anti free-speech comments should be banned by the mods? LTNman is stating a perfectly valid opinion - GET OVER IT!

Hang on, anti free speech posts? Where are they? Seems that recent posts are doing exactly what you are accusing others of doing.

Surely if you value free speech you agree that one mans "good and honest man" can be another mans "racist bigot".

As for "posts regarding Wizzair were measured and honest", just curious as to what you understand the comment "Might be the case that there are no relations left in Eastern Europe to visit" to mean?

Now - back to Wizzair...

To be fair, it's a genuine point. Having polish family on the other side it wouldn't be wrong to say that many of the people who they go to Poland to visit Infact move over to the UK and Ireland, removing the need for as many trips.

I glance through the i. LTNman is entitled to say what he wants just as everyone else, why should people who do not follow a jingoistic, xenophobic ideal be banned. You had a raw nerve touched? The readership of the daily malicious speaks volumes....
Anyway back onto Wizz, good business orientation showed they would make money flying where profitable. They could quite easily ditch Luton and operate elsewhere in Europe.

No, what this tells us is that the Daily Mail is the biggest seller in a terminally declining medium, in which the main customer base consists of retirees. In other words, the Mail's core audience.

Some of you get really worked up about a few "tongue in cheek" remarks by LTN man. If what he said in the last day or two is what has got you so annoyed, I can't imagine why. He hasn't used offensive language or professed extreme views. Rather, he has taken the p*ss & you have reacted in a very much over the top manner. He must be laughing his cogs off. I would lighten up if I were you; before you do yourself some damage.

Spot on my friend. A fuss over nothing that has put a smile on my face. Some folk really need to lighten up a little before they bust a blood vessel.

I have eyes and see daily the people that come and go from Eastern Europe flying Wizz over the years. It started off with mainly young males. Then wives and girlfriends arrived who then started families or whole families arrived with their children. Many of them then brought their parents and other relations here to settle as well. I only have to pass the many Eastern European shops in Luton or visit my local ASDA to see the ages of these shoppers. Some of them are quite elderly and are clearly grandparents pushing pushchairs.

It seems a reasonable comment to make that if no immediate family are left in Eastern Europe then travel back to their homeland will be reduced. If that fact has upset a few nasty people here I won't be making any apologies so if you don't like my comment then it is tough.

As for my other comment no sense of humour comes to mind but then spiteful people are not noted for their sense of humour and just want to silence those who see the world differently

If anyone else would like to insult me then send me a pm, as I quite like a giggle from those that like to huff and puff with indignation
