If you are a wheelchair user or over 65, you deserve unlimited benefits and concessions. If not, you deserve nothing and are a malingerer.

It's a real shame they found him. These road warriors think they are indestructible as they hoon round everywhere.

Too FAT to fly: Sick American woman dies in Hungary after 'airline kicks her off three New York flights because she was too obese'

All the information is in the story for the reader that cares to concentrate: she'd gained weight because of illness and disability, and she was holidaying in the land where she was born — a trip she took every year. But most readers have just looked at the headline and the numerous undignifying photos:
Why should the airline be sued? If you're too big to get on the plane, then you can't fly. The airline shouldn't be held up for one passenger. If you're not on board, then tough, you can't fly. Airlines have schedules to stick to an connections to meet, and it's not fair on all the other passengers to be held up. It's sad, but the airline is not at fault here.

Obesity is a slow, painful and humiliating method of suicide.

I don't think she gained weight because of her illness; her illness were caused by her weight. She was morbiditly obese and only has herself to blame.

oh it`d be lovely to sit next to her on a flight

Ironic that she died in HUNG(A)RY.

I find this all very sad. I'm sure there will be all sorts of nasty comments to come.

Kind of the inverse of the normal mail readers compassion.

Former Northern Rock treasurer, 56, who 'fell into depression after bank collapsed' is found dead at his home

Looks very sad doesn't it.
'He felt terrible about customers and shareholders losing their money.'
He stepped down as a board director in November 2007 and took early retirement in January 2008 - after pocketing a reported £2.5million in bonus pay-outs.
Well not terrible enough to refuse his payout..... Never mind all the poor people who lost everything he still got his bit.

If he killed himself because he was racked with guilt and shame then perhaps there were better ways of dealing with this.

I am not that hard hearted though.

It is a sad story, just like all of the sad stories that came out of the financial collapse....

A tragic story of a woman who's disability caused her to kill herself.

So here's a pic of her in a gas mask, for no reason.

On the story about one of the Australian DJs being close to a breakdown -
Close to breakdown? Hurry up and do it then!

That's a comment that's come through moderation. If this story ends up with three suicides instead of one, the Mail and Mailites will be in seventh heaven. And they will never for a moment admit that they might bear any responsibility.
