Did the Daily Mail Kill Bob Crow?

  • Union boss Bob Crow died from heart attack early this morning
  • Today’s Mail ran brutal hatchet job on Crow

The Daily Mail newspaper published a deadly hatchet job on union leader Bob Crow last night just hours before his death from a heart attack, it emerged this morning. In developments likely to infuriate his union members, it was revealed that the Mail described Crow as a “militant” and criticised him for attending a “three-course lunch at Westminster’s fashionable Inn on the Park restaurant”.

The attack appeared on the paper’s website only hours before Crow suffered a fatal heart attack. Bob Crow died at Whipps Cross hospital in Leytonstone early this morning.

    One can have differences with political opponents but it should never descend into the gutter of personalised attacks. I wasn’t a fan of Crow’s politics, but I can respect the man and his principles. Dying at 52 is not right. And just because sections of the left were a disgrace in dancing on Mrs Thatcher’s grave doesn’t mean others should do the same regarding Crow or any other political opponent.

    Except if it’s Tony Blair, who’s a warmongering, sociopathic mass murdering c-unt whose death I’d celebrate with a massive party.

    I’m no fan of Brown but your basic premise that one man can be held responsible is not correct whichever person was Prime Minister or whichever party formed the Government at the time of the 2008 Banking Crisis was in a difficult position – the reasons for the collapse and subsequent bailouts are complex and I could probably write several thousands of words on the matter – the government at the time could have let capitalism run its course and let the banks fail which would have meant we would probably be in a worse situation in the UK than now. Ultimately the 2008 crisis was born in the US which spread to the UK and other countries due to the inter-connectivity of the current banking system.

    Utter fucking bollocks.

    If it ‘started in the US’ then it started the day after 9/11 when Bush, to avoid a ‘feel bad’ recession that the religion of peace could claim was their doing, flooded the US with printed money. They were literally sending people cheques in the post. Get out there. Spend. Don’t let the terrorists stop ‘our way of life’. Millions were hired for ‘security’ and the military. Bazillions was spent on military investment. The economy boomed.

    Brown looked at the US and said ‘Well, if they’re going to do it then I’m going to do it’. He, in his turn hired 1,000,000 public sector workers overnight in 2001/2.

    The rest is history.

    It didn’t start in Am*eri*ca. It stopped. It was the ya*nks who pulled the pin on the insane borrowing. Thankfully. Otherwise we’d have ended up like Ic*el*and or Ir*ela*nd.

    Reading the article I agree ‘loose, lax and unregulated system’ in the UK but this has been a historical problem under several Governments since deregulation under the Thatcher Government of the 80s but if the UK had have had stronger controls Aig would have set up elsewhere to exploit lax controls and we still would have the same problem so again your premise that Brown is responsible is incorrect in fact Krugman praises the UK response to the 2008 global financial event.

    You must be an innumerate socialist. If you have 10 houses 5 are council house and 5 are owner occupied how many house do you have in total, answer 10. If sell the 3 council houses to the occupants are a reduced rate so you save on ongoing maintenance how many house do you have, answer 10. 2 are council houses, so selling council houses does n’t reduce the number of houses it just reduces the number of council houses. If you want to let the council house you would have to evict the current tenants to house others.

    In conclusion selling council houses does not reduce the housing stock, it just reduces the states cost of maintaining them.

Of course if he’d had any vestige of self-awareness or any real-world financial & economic nous, he too would have would have realised that no bank was too big to fail (especially when it was Scottish eh Gordon?) and consequently brokered the most monumental f*ck-up since ythe South Sea Bubble.

    Hired 1,000,000 public sector workers overnight in 2001/2. Gave them all massive pay increase. He gave the doctors so much they all went to a three day week. So we ended up with a fucking shortage of doctors.

    WRONG! It’s a shame so many people have believed Labour’s propaganda.

    Leading on from his gloat to have ended boom and bust, Brown changed the Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio for banks allowing Banks to borrow factors more money. This lead to the UK part of the Bank Disaster.

    The Old Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio had historically kept the banks borrowing in check, and there lending under control. In order to stay competitive Banks where forced to take advantage of this, leaving themselves venerable when times got hard.

    Please note, the most risky business banks deal in is lending (not investment banking) and it was this activity that caused some of the biggest issues at RBS, HBOS, Northern Rock, etc…

    Agreed personal debt levels are a problem and people have to take personal responsibility for this but also the system is set-up in such a way now to make borrowing easy and borrowing is promoted heavily so its no wonder people get into trouble, historically it was much more difficult to borrow – if you wanted to borrow money you had to personally see your bank manager.

    I agree with your comment on Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio the question is would any other government at the time have done anything differently when the banks were probably putting pressure on for the change – but again the premise of the conversation is Brown personally and completely responsible for the events of 2008 and I believe it is much more complex and nuanced than such a simple statement.

    Ok so should Brown had let us go into recession in 01/02 or as he did do extended the relative good years until the banking fails of 2008 using borrowing and public sector worker increases?

    If he had done that would it have stopped the events of 2008?

    If the events of 2008 i.e the bank fail and bailout not happened what state would the UK economy be in now taking into account the public sector worker level and 20 billion of borrowing to fund it?

    In 2008 should Brown had not bailed out the banks and let them fail and repaid everyone’s savings under 85k from the taxpayer? and anyone with over 85k well tough luck.

    Democracy Now says:

    Because the Tory Party suspects that there are a number of councillors and possibly MPs up and down the country who currently hold office because of voting fraud.

    One of the most telling signs of the level of the endemic nature of the frauds took place at the last local elections in London in 2010. An ‘error’ caused the declared totals in the High Street Ward in Walthamstow to be 125% of the total eligible electorate. Not a single person at the count considered this was odd, or if they did, they didn’t challenge the result at the time. Why? Because everyone was stupid? Becuase no-one had a stake in the outcome? I doubt that. The best explanation is that the two main parties contending for the 3 seats in the ward both feared that their candidates had been involved.

    Why didn’t the third party challenge what went on on this night? Maybe they were half asleep. Or maybe they didn’t want too much scrutiny to take place in other wards which were also being counted at the same time.

    ‘I’d have fired Brown’s million on Day One back in May 2010.

    Probably a bad idea remember the money spent on the public sector is recycled into the economy via taxation and spending within the economy – tax avoidance is more damaging as it takes money out of the rotation.

    ‘They’d have got over it by now (or not, I don’t give a shit) and we wouldn’t have been paying the c*unts for the last four years.’

    Just Asking says:

    Actually Crow’s death could be blamed on the BBC.
    The PM programme on BBC radio 4 entertained Bob Crow to lunch at a salubrious restaurant near Westminster, with one of their “junior off the record” women journalists, and then broadcast it.
    I believe he ordered the treacle pudding for dessert so that could have certainly done it.
    This evening PM’s Eddie Mair was quite grovelling over Crow’s demise, as are all the other beeboids.

    Just Asking says:

    Interesting in that in his words of wisdom at the public paid BBC PM programme lunch before his death, Bob Crow stated that his was the only household in his street that was not on benefits and paid the rent.
    Says it all really.

    Crow was a dinosaur always banging on about the working man,truth of the matter was he couldn’t give a shit about any of the normal working class men and women who used the network. He was a hypocrite of the highest order,a champagne socialist. In my eyes he was no better than Scargill who has shown he’s true colours by shitting on he’s old union.Good riddance Bob ,hopefully the network will start to modernise ,get rid of the dead wood who fill up so many of the old institutions in this country. The trouble with so many who work in jobs like ticket offices,council workers, etc is they are not capable of earning a living off their own guile. That’s why they loved Crow so much.

    Probably a bad idea remember the money spent on the public sector is recycled into the economy via taxation and spending within the economy – tax avoidance is more damaging as it takes money out of the rotation.

    Hahaha you utter fucking moron.

    When Mrs Thatcher died, Bob Crow said: “‘I won’t shed one single tear over her death. She destroyed the NHS and destroyed industry in this country and as far as I’m concerned she can rot in hell.’ He was a nasty piece of work, and the country is a better place without him.

    I saw some comments that compared the reaction of his opponents to his death to the way that many on the Left reacted to Margaret Thatcher’s death. Be interesting to see what comments he made at the time.

    The above title maybe too sensationalist for even The Sun!

    nice that you can make such sweeping judgements about people, no I did not sing when thatcher passed away. she died, I was not sad but did not disrespect the fact she was a human being with family and friends who were mourning her death!

    Mr Crow , achieved great (work related) things for the RMT members, and this will be long remembered by those who can still maintain a quality of life in 2014! because they are in receipt of a livable wage and work related benefits;

    also before you accuse persons of being ‘tossers’ take a look at your yourself , you’reprobably a sad 50+ single, porn watching obese ‘tosser’ who will die alone and unhappy, indeed the only happiness you probably get is when you’re acting out as a keyboard warrior (hows that for a sweeping statement Tel E Caster

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
