  1. The market dictates the pay, unless it upsets you, then the market is wrong and we need some sort of collective wage control?


    Put some effort in... if you actually looked at the jobs then they're promotion jobs where you've had to excel at other roles within TFL.  It's not a job that's advertised publicly and there's roughly 150 applicants per job meaning those who get the job really have to prove they're worth it.


    There's a good chance as a tube driver that you'll kill someone who jumps.  There's a good chance you'll be physically abused.  There's an even better chance that you'll be the convenient target of politicians who want to deny you a pay rise while getting an 11% one (not including the equivalent increase in pension as well).


    I may personally think they probably get at the high end of what's acceptable but they have a union that's still functional unlike 95%+ of the UK workers.

    Point 1 they are a glorified bus driver and at that salary is it any surprise they have so many applicants

    Point 2 Bus drivers suffer the same probably worse scenarios,politicians pay rise is'nt a tory thing while wrong its assessed by some commission(totally wrong) in my eyes.

    Some unions went OTT in the 70/80's i remember coming home from school having to eat my tea by candlelight/bins not being emptied/dead not buried yeah lets return to the past it was great

  2. That article is bizarre in the sense that it is apparently a victory over heartless Tories, yet itself states that the rule has been in place for the last 20 years. I'm pretty sure that these "heartless Tories" weren't in power for most of those 20 years. Or is it only a heartless rule when there's a Tory government ? What was it when it was in place under a Labour government from 1997 to 2010 ?

    Nice one Derwent

    Doubt you'll get a response though

    I can just imagine the teeth grinding and headbanging when they read your post

  3. You must be a deeply unhappy person to have such hatred for the most vulnerable of your fellow human beings.

    Could'nt be happier Labour are dead and buried to the electorate for years and years to come and if they are that stupid to vote in Corbyn(the Communist) decades in the duldrems awaits.I do hope they do,ive had my 3 quids worth :shout:

    I dont hate anyone especially the geniunely needy they should be helped no doubt,what i am against is the bone idle social security scroungers who play the system,have no intention of looking nevermind getting work and believe the state should look after them.

    I know loads of these in my area who constantly keep knocking out kids willy nilly which the taxpayer has to support.

    As for the guys that liked your post well the wiganer what do you expect that town would return a labour MP if Saddam Hussein stood as their candidate,a bit like St.Helens were they just elected a northern irishman who'd never been to the town previously and an ex Council leader(67 years old) who had alledgedly dodgy dealings whilst in office and is currently facing charges of assault on a woman at the scottish referendum.

    Craig i'm surprised at as i thought he was quite smart,but i was mistaken.

    And finally lefty Rhino well what can you say about someone who follows looney left minority parties,he's probably one of the ones i made reference to earlier.Aint got owt but wants a share of what someone else has worked hard for.

  4. Ive run out of likes for derwent and saintlass

    not sure how to do laughs /smilies at Weary/Griff and of course Trojan

    worst case scenario i've heard is it will cost the bone idle is 10 cigs/or a pint and a half a week.

    Stop knocking out kids that You cant pay for

    This country should not be a charity,if we were'nt the Calais situation would not be happening

  5. I'll be interested to watch the game back when I get home as at the match it seemed to me Silverwood was massively in favour of Leeds, the opposite of common opinion here it seems, both teams offside but kept pinging Wigan for it, thought there was a flop by Leeds in front of the posts at 24-18 and he didn't give us the penalty which could have been vital, plenty forward passes and high shots missed, maybe it'll look different when I'm a bit calmer !!

    it will

    drinks all round for silverwwod and ian smith
