Tube Explosion



Two points

Since when did TfL employees start thinking they can detain anyone?
Since when have TfL starting hiring shaved gorillas with pony tails?
Has anyone told Health and Safety?

No but they do have the right not to allow people who abuse others to travel. What did he say to the lady beforehand that so upset her colleague? Why was the scene being videoed?

I can barely make out what's being said above the noise of the train but that the guard was abusive -'Ladies & gentlemen, this train goes nowhere until the little man here gets back off'- isn't in doubt. The fact that he's got a job with a uniform and a walkie-talkie seems to have given him delusions of righteousness. I bet he only picked on the chap because he wore a suit and carried a briefcase anyway.

He probably been on the same course that traffic wardens et al have been on , so that they can assist the 'civil power'

Give somebody a bit of power and they WILL use it.

Tory Boys, it was being filmed because the pony tailed turd had already been abusive apparently.

National Rail staff can be arsy berks too. They have been in dictatorial jobsworth heaven since Boris brought in the no booze on the train rule, swiftly following on from the no smoking on the platforms byelaw.

Saw a little runt at Twickenham running around threatening rugby fans on Army v Navy day last year. He was loving every minute of it. Threatened calling the police on at least a dozen, just in my time on the platform.

TFL fuckers said...

The old guy had got his arm stuck in the door and told the guard. He got a mouthful of abuse for his troubles.
I've never trusted blokes with pony tails. Why the fuck would a bloke want a pony tail ?

That's public sector staff for you.

Scumbags the lot of 'em.

Imagine being told you are "jumped up little git" by a jobsworth with a pony tail? Oh the pain of it. Are we supposed to abandon our cars for this sort of service? What a joke.

Nazi platform staff everywhere these days. Argue with them and you'll find yourself detained.

Notice how the general public are better dressed than these two jobsworths. Nothing says professionalism like an unshaven man with a ponytail and a woman with hoop earrings.

wish i had been there that pony tailed cunt would have gone under the train pronto . what a cunt

Ah the empowerment of morons. Nice to know we're in such safe hands.
Well done Zanuliebore. You gave Winky McFuckwit a job

Cheeky cunt. Needs chinned.

What do you find when you lift up a poneytail?

An arsehole. And sometime a cunt.

Jobsworth is both.

The cunt is suspended.

But how long will it be before filming Tube staff becomes illegal?

LABOUR CUNTS YOU HAVE FUCKED MY COUNTRY - FUCK OFF

So was not likely to give back what he was getting. I dare say any yoof with lank hair and tracky bottoms on wouldn't appear to be such an easy target for these kinds of jobsworths.

This is the same type of weapons-grade uber-cunt that infests airports under the guise of "security" staff.

A group of us was travelling to Madrid. When we approached the "security" area, one of them barked at us "Right, you lot. Take your shoes off".

I remarked that he reminded me of a nazi death camp guard shouting at Jews, before they went into the gas chamber. I was told that abuse of staff would not be tolerated, and we had a "discussion" about abuse. I won. With seven witnesses to his behaviour and abuse, uber-cunt didn't stand a chance.


Oh, and ladies, be wary of the wimmin "security" guards; many of whom are dykes, and like to have a quick grope of female passengers, whilst patting them down. Be very aware of them whilst they do this. They think they can get away with it, because a scene will end up with the passenger not being able to board their flight.

Take 'em on every time. Don't take ANY shit from these cunts.

"No but they do have the right not to allow people who abuse others to travel."

The man who was there and who filmed it says no abuse of the pony-tailed yob took place, and that in fact the man simply wanted to complain about the train doors trapping his arm.

"What did he say to the lady beforehand that so upset her colleague?"

Again, he wanted to make a complaint about the train doors. Even if he had abused her, is that what they learn on the 'Customer Care' course? To hurl abuse back?

"Why was the scene being videoed?"

So that this jumped up, officious little yob can be suspended (now happened) and hopefully sacked (soon to happen, god willing) and not get away with it like so many others.

I know, TBNGU, that you are used to defending the indefensible with your constant bigging-up on the disgrace that is Nu Lab on any blog that doesn't just delete your witless utterings, but surely you don't think that remit extends to gobby little oiks with a flurescent jacket and a tiny penis too, do you?

JuliaM said...

I think pony-tail will soon be memorising a new phrase.

Not so much 'Mind the doors!' as 'Big Issue, guv?'...

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the sub titles OH. Gobby little cunt - big mouth - obviously very, very tiny dick. Hope he loses his job, then he can practise the well known phrase phrase 'Is that with fries, Sir?'

Get Smart said...

Whats under a pony-tail..an ar** hole
this surely applies here.

Ian.D said...

I once purcahsed two one adult ticket plus child tickets for my girls on a family railcard. Whilst waiting for the train, the women in the ticket winder popped out onto the platform and demand to see some birth certificates! Luckily the train pulled in before the "discussion" exploded. Cuntz.

matthew hopkins said...

They have to work in places like that. If they tried gobbing off like that where I work it'd be a short sharp lesson out of sight of the CCTV and try eating your cornflakes with no fucking teeth.

go straight to the job centre do not pass go and do not collect your pension.

they think they're some sort of anti-terror spetznaz. fucking platform monkeys aren't even clever enough to manage the stop/go button in the train....

Bryan said...

Try travelling by Arriva Trains Wales, a nightmare every day. Full of fucking staff who look like "ODDBOD" from the carry on screaming films (see icons for post 17:51 by Hairy Arsed bloke - and you get the drift).
Some staff would go into work even if they were'nt being paid - they are that fucking sad for some type of "power" fix.

electro-kevin said...

There's not enough here to tell the full story.

All I know is that the abuse transport staff take can be utterly UTTERLY astonishing.

The attendant seems keen to get the train moving again. And 'git' is hardly the worst word to use.

The question should be why Boris is making such a big thing about this. In high pressured London where my colleagues are frequently beaten and sometimes carved up.

A cheap browny point scoring mission methinks.

Fidothedog said...

What a cunt, he should be collecting his P45.

Oh and he needs a wash an brush up as well.

I think it shows the level of abuse we as passengers have to take. Jump on a bus, and you'll see a sign "We do not tolerate abuse of our staff".
When my wife and I reported a bus driver for verbal abuse, we were told, the matter would be handled internally - and thanks for bringing the matter to our attention!
We heard nothing else. Despite having to make alternative means of transport home. Its now before a transport users group.
SLAGS!

JuliaM said...

"All I know is that the abuse transport staff take can be utterly UTTERLY astonishing."

It can be, I've no doubt.

But the man in the video isn't dealing out any abuse, and even if he had been earlier, that's not the way to deal with a situation, is it?

"The question should be why Boris is making such a big thing about this. "

Because it resonates with so many people who have seen (or worse, had) the same type of treatment. And he's canny enough to realise that.

Coming on top of a fare rise too!

Electro-kevin obviously dont get out much by public transport.... this TFL-Cunt is out of order.

Stick some "track circuit clips" on his TFL-balls, then get him to mouth off so fast!

TFL said...

Wait till the ponce clocks off, and get him with a baseball bat, shouting "Mind the doors.........please"

Then promote him to clean Fluff from his naval region.

Which part of the word "no" in response to the original questions raised did you fail to understand.

I am not justifying the behaviour of the pony tailed yob - but just pointing out that the the old gentleman's behaviour may have been less than perfect as well. You cannot hear what he says - but you can see that he was jabbing his finger in the lady's face.

I fail to see how offensive behaviour can be used to justify the same in response - a point which does not seem to be appreciated by many of the foul mouthed commenters here.

I'm sorry but i regularly see railway staff being the subject of abuse from the public - and this isn't acceptable either. Thankfully, you will see that Boris Johnson has made the same point.

JuliaM said...

"I am not justifying the behaviour of the pony tailed yob - but just pointing out that the the old gentleman's behaviour may have been less than perfect as well."

And might not. In fact, from the eyewitness reports, certainly was not.

So introducing the possibility certainly IS attempting to justify pony-tails behaviour with a 'But miss, the other boys did it TOO!'...

And who should we believe? The people there at the scene, filming incontrovertible evidence, or a known blogtroll usually too busy kissing Gordon's buttocks to worry about things like this.

What's up? TfL worker, are you?

"You cannot hear what he says - but you can see that he was jabbing his finger in the lady's face. "

Ooooh, no! *gasp*

Probably the stiffest thing that 'lady' has had waved in her face since she was sixteen...

"I'm sorry but i regularly see railway staff being the subject of abuse from the public..."

I don't, actually, though I can well believe it happens at late turns. I have, however, seen arrogant and ignorant Tube staff and security guards treat passengers doing nothing wrong with appalling discourtesy.

So stop the 'Miss, they do it TOO! whining and admit that NOTHING the gentleman in that video clip does warrants that treatment.

Or not. Who the hell is listening to you, anyway?

No-one can really make out what you say, with Gordon's tiny organ in your mouth as usual...

Difficult as it may be for you to understand it is possible for both of them to have behaved badly - but i have no problem admitting that nothing he or anyone does would ever warrant such behaviour. As well as the word "no" you appear to be struggling with the meaning of the word "yob".

As for the comment re "late turns" and other related garbage - this just perhaps says more about yourself than it ever could about myself.

Before you spout anymore rubbish perhaps you should look some of the figures and court cases relating to abuse of railway workers.

And no I'm not a railway worker and I cannot stand the politics of the RMT Leadership - but such matters are of no relevance here whatsover.

Of course in your brave new world you would never have to engage in argument with those with whom you disagree - you could just deal with them through abuse and ignorance, that is of course if you or your libertarian friends have dealt with me beforehand.

Whateva.

"What attracted you to drive Eurostars, Kevin"

"Sixty foot of power-car and a lockable door."

That was my answer at interview having served on driver only commuter trains for five years transporting total fucktards around London at all hours.

Most people are alright. But some can be total and utter CUUUUUUNTS.

I'm not struggling at all. You, however, aee swimming against a riptide.

"Before you spout anymore rubbish perhaps you should look some of the figures and court cases relating to abuse of railway workers."

No-one's denying that they face abuse. Are you hard of reading? They are denying that, in this case, there was any abuse, and that the way to DEAL with abuse, should it occur, is NOT by hurling abuse back.

Ever worked in a customer-facing environment? I have. Lose your temper, lose the argument. Simples!

(Well, maybe not 'simples' enough for you, but I can't use hand gestures or draw pictures in a text box, can I?)

"...that is of course if you or your libertarian friends have dealt with me beforehand."

You fool yourself if you think you are worth the bother of 'dealing with', sweetie...

"..."What attracted you to drive Eurostars, Kevin"

"Sixty foot of power-car and a lockable door."..."


Heh! :)

I can tell by the tone of your comments - You obviously did this voluntary!

Good man!
Thanks what we need in Britain today!

JuliaM has it right...
staff must learn to diffuse sitautions not pour petrol on them.
