British Airways 777 accident: some sueing, some not

Obviously we don’t yet know what caused the BA 777 accident at Heathrow, but that’s not stopping some passengers talking about sueing. More interestingly, and encouragingly, some are going on the record declaring that they won’t sue. It’s been a long while since there was a major air accident in the UK and I think this aspect is going to get some attention in the media in the months ahead. Happily the UK culture is still far-removed from the US sue-if-you-get-the-chance standpoint. But there have been nasty signs of a westwards trend lately.So a big hand please for the redoubtable Dr Jeroen Ensink (Dutch???), 33, of London who says he won’t be sueing. And a huge round of applause for Francis Charig, about whom we know little, but who has an admirably robust view of life as (s)he explains at length in the Daily Telegraph. Best of all they’ve both got big support from readers (not that you’d expect anything else from the Telegraph community of course.)
