Bob Crow has passed away

Recommended Posts

Apparently Crow exercised every day. He was undoubtably a big man and slightly overweight but didnt really strike me in that bad a shape.

I would say stress may have been a factor, as someone else said he was getting hounded by daily fail etc recently whilst on holiday but apparently he has it booked for nearly a year

He booked the holiday 18 months previous. He wound up the mail with his claim he got discount by booking it from an advert in their paper. He wound them up further with his i couldn't give a fuck what the mail thinks attitude, which prompted his quote "what do you expect my to do in my spare time, sit under a tree and read Karl Marx all day?"

Very sad, far too young. Can't say I agreed with all of his views but hell I'd definitely want him to be the leader of a union I was a member of.

 

From my limited experience of union membership it did rather appear that we we're being bent over. Did exactly what a quality union boss should do, fight for his members rather than conducting a race to the bottom that the rest of society seems to be involved with.

Great loss, the RMT (my union) has negotiated an average pay rise of over 3.5% for the last 3 years running. That is not only down to the skill of the area negotiator but also the influence of Bob Crow and the strong policy he implemented.

 

He wiped the floor recently with TforL and their treatment of cleaners, a true Socialist in every sense of the word.

Despite your political persuasions, you can't argue with what he did in his role, spoke it how it was, and as for the mail giving him shit for a decent holiday, they fail to look at the fact the he also said that MP's deserved a pay rise. Bit of a strange one on the face of it, but underneath eat that was the fact that if they got more money, they wouldn't be whoring themselves out as consultants, and could concentrate on what there supposed to do. Forgot that one daily fail didn't you!

That's the funny thing, they do. The same way that they attacked Brand for having a few quid. It's textbook stuff; you have to prohibit people who have cash, and therefore power and voice, from using it to support those with less than them.

 

If you're not destitute then you're a champagne socialist.

 

Luckily we won't need a replacement though. We've got three day weeks on the way in the near future if the tech keeps improving. Which is nice.

A good man who fought hard for his members. He didn't strike me as out of shape but I imagine the stress of the job would have been tough.

 

No doubt a few Tory cunts will be raising a glass to his demise, and their new ability to dismantle the NHS apace.

Have we had an explanation as to how that will happen yet?

 

Nope. You'll not get one, as it's nonsense from a fairy tale.

 

Heard from a mate this weekend his contract is being re-jigged so he'll now be working 3 out of every 4 weekends, instead of 2, and he'll be getting less money.

 

Capital just being dead generous with labour's free time; it's all the rage. Utopia here we come.

Bit disappointed by that really. I was looking forward to spending 4 days a week with the my unborn child (10 weeks and counting down) for the same money.

 

Sorry to hear about your mate, Capita continuously demonstrating they are cunts of the highest order.

Not really my mug of brew, but you've got to respect a politician who has a clear idea of what he wants, who he's standing up for and drives that agenda no matter what.

 

Too many people moan about politicians who 'stand for nothing', then as soon as ones come along who actually have strong values and ideals (some of which they may not agree with), decry them.

She not only looks like a pantomime dame, she acts like one.don't start baying at her - the best thing to do is ignore her. Once the audience dries up, she'll be selling reach arounds behind the funfair in Blackpool.

If you don't give a flame oxygen it dies soon enough, eh.

Did anyone hear the superb take down of her MItchell and Webb did recently?

Not Capita. Just another massive company with the same ethos. No shortage of them.

Katie Hopkins should not be mentioned in the same breath, talentless money grabbing whore that she is.

 

If she was paid to go on TV to say immigration is wrong one night and right the next she would do it. Disgusting ugly home wrecking non- entity who would sell her own Mother for a glass of plonk.

 

We all know she is a rent a quote charlatan but she really is an odious inside out faced slut.

Funny some of these Londoners "I was 10 minutes late for work..... I'm glad he's dead"

 

I heard one comment that his lack of empathy for the commuters on the underground was typical of the I'm alright jack attitude outdated unions have. Whaaaaaaaa!!!
