I can't watch it yet, but award for "most gratuitous abuse of RMT yet"
would seem to be in order.

Unions do not support abusive behaviour. It might be their job to
ensure that a member got a fair hearing, but if the member was, for
example, racist, they might not even do that, and would probably expel
him/her.

Pity they're not so hot on kicking out sick pay scroungers who , oh I dunno,
go off sick for months and when they're caught playing squash , instead
of fessing up like an adult they come out with some BS about it being
doctors orders and the muppets in the RMT back them up with a strike threat.

Well, apart from the times, frequently documented on uk.r, where the
RMT has issued press statements in favour of staff members who've been
dismissed or disciplined for assaulting members of the public. And the
time *last month* where they went on strike to support one.

It's their job to represent someone sacked without a proper hearing,
not to condone what they are accused of (whether they did it or not).

I thought it was the staff member who was assaulted in that case.

I could not see the elderly man - perhaps he had already left.

This has just been shown on BBC (London) News, with a comment by Boris
Johnson that he's 'appalled'.

Well, the video clip has just been broadcast on the BBC lunchtime news,
Boris is apparently appalled, and TfL have launched an investigation.

Powerful stuff, this new technology ...
