Bob Crow

Postby Gi Me Beer » Thu Mar 13, 2014 3:51 pm

I'm sure a lot of people on here will probably be glad he has gone.

However, he will be badly missed, his leadership of the RMT, especially the rail section was very very effective,
he quickly worked out how best to play the new way of doing things, and certainly did this very effectively.
He will be missed in a big way by a Trades Union movement that needs strong leaders such as he was.

As a leader, he was brilliant.
As a man who knew exactly what to do to ensure that millions suffered needlessly, he was right up there with Hitler.

Horrible man. Feel sorry for his family and friends, but I doubt there's a single person in London who will miss him.

However, quotes from Boris

Mr Johnson said: "I'm shocked. Bob Crow was a fighter and a man of character."Whatever our political differences - and there were many - this is tragic news. Bob fought tirelessly for his beliefs and for his members. There can be absolutely no doubt that he played a big part in the success of the Tube, and he shared my goal to make transport in London an even greater success. It's a sad day."

He later told the BBC Mr Crow was widely misunderstood and was not the "left-wing ogre" he was considered to be by the wider public.
If anything he was more moderate than some of the other characters in the RMT," said Mr Johnson, adding that Mr Crow was known to be the man you would go to "if the deal was to be done".

And that's why Boris is an awesome politician. No way is he going to mock the dead, he'd be lambasted for it.

Neither do I. I think you're making stuff up again.

I said they both caused suffering to millions, which is true. I didn't say that Crow killed anyone.

Well, not to my knowledge anyway.

This reminds of a time I saw two old men sitting on bar stools next to each other in my local - as they did most nights.
They got into a disagreement over something which turned into a bout of fisty cuffs at one stage.
They settled down after a few minutes, apologised to each other and then had another disagreement about who was going to buy the other a drink.
The amazing thing was that throughout the whole episode neither of them actually got off their stools. :mrgreen:
