Celebrities above the law aren't anything new. Celebrities believing they have super-powers, on the other hand...I blame Scientology. Then came Michael Jackson as Captain EO, and now Madonna as Kabbalah Lass. I sense a business opportunity...

Meanwhile, maybe next time Ms Love will do an impression of a spider monkey.

America's Sweetheart WAX MY ANUS!!!

I'm posting this reluctantly.
When I woke up yesterday and saw
this link in my morning messages,
my penis ran screaming back up
into my groin faster than a dose
of salts through a tall Swede.

Jesus Campbell you're a twisted, bitter, troll. You don't like me, no problem, I don't like you either, that's fine by me. If you don't like what's being discussed in a thread then just fuck off and go elsewhere. Oh but you said you were going to do that before (off the forum if I recall) and you were back on the forum in a couple of days.

Lord H,

Get a gun, then you won't have to worry about when the police are going to show up. Oh wait, you live in a country that revoked that individual right. Then you should feel quite safe with no police since there aren't anymore guns on the streets. Are there?

She physically attacked a friend of mine at a Lallapalooza show. Leapt right off the stage and tried to pummel him. Granted, he was wearing a T-Shirt that said "Who Killed Kurt?", and there have been occasions when _I_'ve had to pummel this friend to shut him up...

I can't get a damn cop for theft, robbery, car jacking, mugging (much less verbal disputes)...I guess you have to be bloody and near death around here.
There is a definite bias to certain celebs and other affluent individuals...the rat bastards...even if they are (rich) skanky smack whores.
It also depends on your legal representative, ie. OJ.

Yeah right Oxy. Airline pilots usually radio ahead for the police to arrest people who just swear at airline hostesses. She was arrested under the Public Order Act "on suspicion of disruptive behaviour and endangering an aircraft".

And the London police have nothing better to do than send a welcoming party to wait and arrest someone who swears at someone. I've seen a burglary in process and called the police, 20 minutes later no sign of them, called them again only to be told they're rather busy, nobody came so I went over with a few friends and chased them off. Next time someone swears at me I'll call the police and expect them to send a couple of squad cars around to arrest the person. In my dreams.

I had a friend who saw her on a bus in San Francisco in the early 90's when she was still a skanky smack whore. Sounds like she hasn't changed her behavior patterns much. See, money and fame don't spoil everything, she's always been that way.

In this case she did a little more than just swear at a bus driver. She was behaving like a crazed junky, screaming at passengers, threatening them, talking to herself, pulling her hair etc etc. Not life threatening, but not too uncommon for buses passing through the western addition.

Considering she got away with offing her husband, and with conning Hollywood into thinking she was an actress PLAYING a skanky smack-whore, as apposed to just being a skanky smack-whore, why should this be any different?

If I had been a passenger on that flight I might sue Virgin airlines for allowing my personal safety to be endangered and for failing to take the matter seriously by encouraging the offender to take more future flights with Virgin rather than taking action to ensure the offender would not endanger the safety of Virgin passengers in future.

It would be nice to see that 'largeness of spirit' extended to the airline employees whose misfortune it was to serve Ms. Love that day. I hope they've all received bonuses for the patience and sense of humor it took to get through that flight.

Largeness of spirit? Bollocks. Virgin airlines are very strict on pressing charges against those who fuck about on their flights (endangering he safety of an aircraft is not just having a bit of a laugh), unless of course you're a celebrity. If this was a drunken tourist on his way back from his holiday he'd have been banned and prosecuted. A typical example of celebrity status giving someone exemption from having to face the consequences of their actions.

How you link this to middle-eastern politics, fox-hunting and GM food God only knows. Perhaps all that cheap South-African plonk you taste has gone to your head? But that's typical of you, you don't like me, you don't like what I post so you choose to launch a personal attack on me. That's just so typical of you.

God, Hobgoblin, you're a humourless, dour, small minded, Red-flag waving, Tony Benn-loving, bearded, pipe-smoking throwback to the Jurassic era of socialism circa 1975.

Richard Branson siezed a blindingly obvious opportunity to turn some bad publicity into hundreds of thousands of dollars of positive press. All for the price of a couple of free air tickets

Its called being an entrepreneur. Its called having a sense of humour. Its called largeness of spirit.

No doubt you feel that all three of these qualities should be legislated against, but hey, the whole loony-left socialist utopia thing died twenty years ago. Wake up and smell the Starbucks.

Lets kill ALL the foxes! Keep up the good work Sharon! We need more GM food!

Richard Branson says "Virgin Atlantic was built thanks to the rock industry and I like to think we are a bit more understanding than most airlines,"

No Richard Branson, your ordinary paying customers are what made Virgin Atlantic, and you're happy to ban them and prosecute them for fucking around during a flight.

Another case of different rules applying to celebrities is when recently Courtney Love was flying on a Virgin flight from the USA to London. She abused passengers and crew, behaved like an asshole. The pilot was so concerned that he radioed ahead and the police were waiting to arrest Courtney Love on touchdown at Heathrow airport.

What would happen to an ordinary member of the public? Well Virgin would ban them from ever flying with Virgin again and furthermore they would be charged with endangering the safety of an aircraft and appear in a criminal court.

What happens to Courtney Love? Well nothing, no ban from flying with Virgin, no pressing of charges, in fact worse than nothing. Richard Branson meets her at a charity event a few days later and gives her 4 free flights on Virgin. He laughs it off by saying that she was just a naughty girl who just needed a spanking on the backside.

Richard Branson, self-appointed 'man-of-the-people', self-appointed 'nice-guy'.

FUCK YOU RICHARD BRANSON!
