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?
When you consider the hypocrisy of the man, and the untold misery he brought to millions, then yes.
He said he was doing it for his poor members, but the shop worker of £16K a year who couldn't get into work was affected far more.
He was nasty and spiteful, militant and unbending and a loathsome individual who cost this country £Billions in trade by his actions.
He was a dinosaur with the mindset of the typical 1970's union boss. I was there then and so were you, every week there were massive walkouts and this country went to the very edge, having to be bailed out by the IMF!
So I have no regrets in having nothing but scorn and opprobrium for this sanctimonious Trotskyite.
