Perhaps it was because he was a 'Working Class Communist/Socialist' who raised the average wage of a London Underground worker to £50,000 pa by inflicting misery on millions with strikes and industrial action and who was on hundreds of thousands of pounds a year himself that he was seen as a hypocrite.
Still, this communist did his bit for international relations by having an extended holiday in Brazil after swearing he would dance on Thatcher's grave.
No wonder he had a heart attack.
All that dancing and all those working class beach parties on Ipanema would strain many a heart
Bob Crow[^] has been cancelled but there is a bus replacement service for all those wishing to dance on his grave.

Try applying. How far you get in your application depends on who you know. His salary was something like £145,000+ pa excluding his expense account and substantial pension. Nothing like a bit of filthy luca to put yourself on level or better terms with those you abhor most spitefully. He was of the old school of the "I'm alright lads, but don't touch my ladder" union brigade.
He was a clever, manipulative type of person who had his members interests 100% on his mind and 101% of his own at the same time. The one good thing is that having earned so much the turd didn't live long enough to enjoy the fruits of his manipulation and bullying. I wonder if the GMT will now go ahead with future planned strikes now that he's caught the last train to the Crematorium. I hope he's not buried; worms have standards.
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
Ok, this might not be so easy to understand, but in Norway both the employer and the employee each have their own unions, so I don't quite understand the antagonistic approach to the union thing. Some think that we do not have a marked economy or a planned economy, but a negotiation economy in our country.

Yes and I don't disagree that it is stupid, but were isn't this the case in one form or another?
