Basically saying he was ace at what he did….
As the only union leader most people under 40 have ever heard of died, tube drivers said Bob Crow was the one person standing between them and trains driven by robot slaves.
Martin Bishop, a driver from Peckham, said: “I would very much like the RMT to advertise – immediately – for a New Person to Scare the Shit Out of Capitalists.
“However, I suspect it may now be time for me to drive a taxi.”
Meanwhile, across Britain opinion was divided between those who thought Bob Crow was really good at his job and those who thought he was really good at his job.
Crow’s supporters said he defended workers’ rights, while his opponents said he brought London to a standstill, leading experts to point out that both of those things are ‘comparatively rare’.
Julian Cook, professor of arguments at Roehampton University, said: “Most modern trade union leaders are actually just a made-up name and some spokesmen working in shifts.
“Also, do you have any idea how difficult it is to make Londoners talk about someone other than themselves?”
Wayne Hayes, an investment banker, said: “He brought the world’s most capitalist city to its knees on several occasions. I couldn’t do that and I genuinely believe I’m worth two million quid a year.”
Nathan Muir, a geography teacher, added: “If David Cameron and the Daily Mail think you’re not even remotely dangerous then you might want to ask yourself what the **** you’re doing.”
London mayor Boris Johnson said he was sad to hear of Bob Crow’s death, but stressed that he would now be able to remove the waterproof mattress cover from his bed.

Somes funny, somes not. Like stuff on here, or the telly. Often rather puerile, depends whether I’m in the mood or not.
Their piece a few years ago about Carla Bruni “motivating” Sarkozy to solve the Georgian crisis is still one of the funniest things I’ve read.Posted 4 years agoTom_W1987Member

I’m just gonna duck out of this forum at this point, every post just seems far too forced for my liking, the whole thing just reads to me like a bunch of kids desperately trying (and failing) to write anything amusing!
That made me smile more than anything on the DM!Posted 4 years agohooliMember
Genuine question to the OP.
If you have seen links on here before, you know roughly what to expect. Why did you go there to find something on somebody who died less than 24 hours ago if you don’t find that sort of thing funny?
Sounds to me like you were looking for something to be offended by.Posted 4 years ago
