"Ian F." gurgled happily, sounding much like
they were saying:

Yay! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/8325406.stm


Umm, the article you link to doesn't say he was fired, it says he
resigned voluntarily "for personal reasons".

Says he resigned, he wasn't fired. Though he probably would have been fired
if he hadn't.

I wonder if the incident hadn't been caught on video the RMT would be calling
a strike ballot now over him being suspended.

Too easy.

Next time go from a discussion about recipes for elderberry cordial to
slagging off the RMT in one sentence.

I know you can do it.

"[He] has advised London Underground that he wishes to resign for personal
reasons.

"He has informed us he would like to apologise for the incident involving a
passenger at Holborn Tube station on Thursday 15 October and hopes that his
actions have not detracted from the professional job done by hundreds of
London Underground staff every day.

"As we made clear from the moment this incident was brought to our attention
this kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable..."

The phraseology leaves me in very little doubt as to what actually happened!

Ian

I'm sure those bunch of layabouts will soon be striking because there isn't a
butler waiting for them at the end of a shift with a drink of their choice on
a silver platter. Hows that?

And if that ****** hadn't be caught on video both he and his union would
be whining about how hard done by he is , the poor thing had to put up with
being assaulted/swore at etc and is only human , blah blah blah , and
suspending him is grossly unfair, bull**** bull**** bull**** , and the union
will be considering "further action" etc.

Apart from anything else, the former member of staff wasn't even an RMT
member and a cursory glance through the RMT website (I can't see
anything else as I'm not a member either) suggests they plan to do
nothing.

But then why let the facts get in the way of a good rant?

Most people on LU seem to be RMT or Aslef. Obviously being a jedi was enough
for him.

But then why let the facts get in the way of a good rant?


Why not rant. The RMT are a bunch of dicks as they've proved endlessly in the
past and if he had been a member and the incident hadn't been caught on tape
and he had been suspended I think we all know what would have happened.
Squash with bad leg anyone?

No, I don't know what would have happened if someone had done
something different from what he did, in a different situation, and
was a member of an organisation that he wasn't a member of.

But I am reminded of those "self-righteous brothers" sketches by Harry
Enfield and Paul Whitehouse.

Go quietly, and you'll get a handsome payoff, I guess.
