Look i don't like him for what he did, i mean right now i live on a paycheck to paycheck basis, and will for at least another month (in the corporate landscape a promotion means a salary drop, who would have thought? :/)
So if i pay the fair, Mr rich baker damn well better follow suite.
But panned for life? especially if his working track record is flawless?
Man that's overkill, because it's basically like public shaming.
it's easy to have no sympathy because he is rich, and for us euro users that would be 53,632 of unpaid tickets :O
But...who on this site DOESN'T try to cheat the system? nobody here torrents games or movies or whatever?
nobody ever traveled without a ticket?
Just because he is rich(er) than us doesn't make it worse than when we do it.
So yeah, make him pay the money, but no need to ban him for life, he didn't try to shoot the queen for crying out loud.

So, let me get this straight. A London banker has been banned from working in the FSI for life, over £42,550 in unpaid train tickets, but none of the people responsible have answered for the BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF POUNDS that were STOLEN by collusion between the banks and the government? The billions and billions of pounds that our gormless, half-witted, porridge faced bastard of a chancellor now wants to recoup by savaging the benefits paid to the neediest in our society? What the hell does this train ticket issue matter, in the face of THAT gigantic mess?
