    Mick Lynch is wiping the floor with the transport minister and Tories in the media, Expect a mud slinging campaign by the Tories soon to attack him,

    Cant you see the contradiction in your views? The difference between Cameron, May and Boris Putin is quite stark.

    It is fun watching you guys clutching at straws these days. Backing each other up with a little 'like'. Bless.

    Exactly, and in the process they are attacking working people. The same people who voted alongside them for brexit. Wont last long this special relationship. Reality will bite soon enough.

    I was referring to Labour leaders. The difference is vastly greater, actually on a whole new political spectrum, between Blair - Corbyn - Starmer.

    As for your rather bizarre second comment, nobody is clutching at anything. It's called a forum discussion, and those who tend to agree with another poster do sometimes like said post.

    I was talking to Bronco about this, good old Gary the multi millionaire taking millions off the BBC. He knows a good photo opportunity when he sees one.

    There is a lesson in this Tone, a lot of folk treat the working class moniker like a badge of honour but love the trappings of what fame and fortune bring. Then kinda forget where they come from. Am I proud to be working class? Am I heckers like. Much rather be rich and pretend to care about the ones at the bottom akin to what the likes of Gary Lineker does.

    The hypocrisy from the media outlets and certain politicians to what the rail workers are doing is hilarious. Imagine being preached to by some whopper like Richard Madeley on breakfast TV.

    The only difference there is Corbyn. Blair and Starmers politics are much the same.

    Boris is typically Corbynesque in his monetary policy and his populism. Can you not see the irony?

    Some members of the RMT posed in a hat with a AK47 what a horror.

    Whereas Boris put one of the Kremlin into the House of Lords. Boris wouldnt publish the Russia report. Russia who inlfuenced brexit which has this week been revealed in court since the brexit boy Banks tried to censor a journalist from revealing the facts.

    If anyone is cosying up to Putin its the man with the Russian name 'Boris'!

    Madeley's an absolute clown, asking Lynch whether or not he was a marxist when I'm fairly willing to wager madeley doesn't even know what the term means himself.

    Anyone watch the comedy show question time last night? Anyone want to tell me now the British Broadcasting Corruption doesn't run with agendas? Christ they may as well have handpicked the audience from a Tory party conference.

    These quotes seem about right...

    There is no justification for striking. If your company under pays you then get a better paid job elsewhere. If you can't get a better paid job elsewhere then by definition they are not under paying you. Either way, no need to strike.

    No RMT member was any more heroic or at risk during the pandemic than workers from any other public service that worked through Covid ... no RMT member is on the bread line - believe you me as a retired railway employee the unions are rabid and they've ensured not just excellent rates of pay but one of the top pension schemes this country has. This strike has far more sinister goals, and the strikes that we are now watching spread across multiple industries are merely tools to reach a political agenda.
