Coffee Shop Offer of the Day


  1. 1
    Jasmin Beckett says:

    That sign made me cry. I want all coffee houses that refuse to serve RMT members dead.

  2. 2
    Anonymous says:

    10% off? That must take it close to a price people from outside London don’t find obscene

  3. 3
    Come on Chelsea says:

    Chelsea for the Champions League

  4. 4
  5. 5
    Bill Towlast says:

    These RMT troublemakers want to inconvenience everyone, time for a taste of their own medicine.

    Only they’re so po faced they can’t take losing out on a latte without exploding into faux Twitter rage.

    They don’t like it up ‘em Sarge!

  6. 6
    "He ruined my life" says:

    It was always going to be Max Clifford, now wasn’t it.
    Anyone with any reasoning to their name would accept this, surely?

    Dead men and Max Clifford.
    Come on.

    Joe Public. says:

    Preferably the one to die is your caravan loving relative.

  10. 10
    Tosser says:

    The people fucked up by the strike were mostly workers you stupid C*nt.

  11. 11
    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    Can you buy other goods and services with a Boris Oystercard?.

  12. 12
    Mind the Gap says:

    The Northern Line is busy, but the frequency of trains is that of a normal day. Are RMT members now disillusioned by the post-Crow leadership?

  13. 13
    Joe Public. says:

    He certainly has the right surname.
    Time to clear out ALL deadwood

  14. 14
    jgm2 says:

    Actually this boycott of RMT members is a fucking good idea. If all affected pubs, shops and businesses simply refused to serve any Tube staff when in uniform then they’d soon get the fucking message.

  15. 15
    Lampeter says:

    Bitter, pricey and getting a roasting today.

    Yep, the RMT are cnuts.

  16. 16
    England rools. says:

    RMT 10% off.

    100% are out and fuck your free coffee and shove it up your arse!

  17. 17
    Darn da toobs says:

    U want a bunch of fives mate?

  18. 18
    Guido Fawkes,The Fat Controller. says:

    Boris Johnson lied when he promised, before his last election, to keep ticket offices open. Only 3% of tickets are bought from ticket offices! That still amounts to 100,000 tickets per day. Most are bought by passengers seeking advice from staff. At present they form an orderly line at the window, put that member of staff on a platform and they would soon become the centre of a scrum. No use to anyone and withdrawn because the system would not be practicable.
    Don`t let Johnson and L.U. fool you, this is all about cutting jobs to make more money and they don`t mind how much passengers suffer.

  19. 19
    Private Pikey says:

    Shoot them captain Camering. You’re entitled. Shoot them!

  20. 20
    Bob Crow says:

    Does this make me eligible for a free coffee now I’m dead?

  21. 21
    Joe Public. says:

    RMT “leadership” by second class union shop stewards and 3rd class activists.

  22. 22
    Darn da toobs says:

    I’m avin a laff, me.

  23. 23
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    The strikers are playing right into the hands of TFL.

    When TFL announce more automation of ticketing and dri’verless trains they will have near 100% support of Londoners.

  24. 24
    Bill Quango MP says:

    The other unions are at work. It’s only those fighting over the leadership of the RMT that are causing trouble.

  25. 25
    dai drinking his own coffee in his sunlit wirral garden says:

    90% off – more like – pal

  26. 26
    Plonker Alert says:

    What a plonker

  27. 27
    Lefties have no sense of humour says:

  28. 28
    Joe Bloggs. says:

    I spoke to a female checkout operative at Sainsbury’s that I was in her queue and not in the popular self service section because I wanted her to be employed.
    She said that in 5-10 years it will all be self service, that is the way it is.
    Such common sense should surely migrate to the RMT and Unite?
    Not in my lifetime it won’t.

  29. 29
    táxpáyér says:

    Everyone who you hate gets an account with a taxi firm you hate who drives them in on expenses which you hate.

  30. 30
    Progress says:

    Sounds good to me. We can replace all of this slackers with their long holidays, high pay and short working weeks with efficient machines that don’t disrupt a city just to make a point.

  31. 31
    dai drinking his own coffee in his sunlit wirral garden says:

    a statement form LT (or current equivalent) about the target date for driverless trains might clarify matters

  32. 32
    jgm2 says:

    and they don`t mind how much passengers suffer.


    Whereas the RMT’s sole concern is the ‘passenger travel experience’?


    Your slip is showing.

    Fuck off.

  33. 33
    Lefties have no sense of humour says:

  34. 34
    Joe Bloggs. says:

    There are some truly sad and stupid people around. Methinks they should form a union. Oh, they have.

  35. 35
    Jasmin Beckett says:

    Your comment made me cry. I want all comments dead.

  36. 36
    St Peters Coffee Shop says:

    No we can see no one of that name in here. Have you looked in the other place, we see a reference to a Mr R sole on their system.

  37. 37
    Young Turk says:

    Do you still take your horse to the blacksmith in order to support ironmongery against the tyranny of the motor engine and the wheel?

    Why did you post in your comment via the Royal Mail to support the postal service?

    A cunt surrounded by a bunch of twats says:

  40. 40
    Owen Jones says:

    The RMT are just a bunch of dinosaurs who need to move with the times and adopt more progressive work practices.
    Remember to celebrate change by the way.

  41. 41
    All hail the scabs! says:

    Transport for London says 50% of Tube services are running compared with 30% to 40% during the last strike in February

  42. 42
    Winston says:

    What has the last hope of the Tory Party done to stop the extraordinary waste at TfL, where employees are now getting 31% of salary paid into their pensions. Yes, whilst the majority of private sector workers now do not pay into a pension, Tfl are getting 31%! Wake-up, Boris is just another, LibLabCon self-obsessed establishment stooge.

  43. 43
    Underground Womble says:

    We’ll save hundreds of pounds once we reply these rude and shirty slackers with machines.

    People are happy to get banknotes from an ATM, no need to have salaried plonkers serving out travelcards.

  44. 44
    Ruth Smeeth PPC says:

    I’m not responsible for this, nor is my other half, honest!

  45. 45
    jgm2 says:

    I don’t care about them. They can fire the fucking lot of them for all I care.

  46. 46
    Owen Jones says:

    Young people who want to be in a ‘selfie’ with a boring middle aged man are sad.

  47. 47
    Bill Quango MP says:

    100,000 tickets a day.
    And what? 250 stations?

    that’s 400 tickets a station a day. or divide by the 18 hours the station is open and that’s 22 an hour. A supermarket clerk process that sort of level of payment.

    Except of course it isn’t. As the VAST, VAST majority of tickets are bought by tourists in the major stations. More than one ticket collector works those offices. And I’m sure TFl would be glad to negotiate to keep the bust offices open. Its their bargaining chip so that when RMT agrees to let the pointless suburban ticket offices close they can say they saved the big ones, with the most jobs.

  48. 48
    Fred the pensioner says:

    Are these ticketing people really losing their jobs? I though I read somewhere that they will be re-deployed elsewhere in the system when the ticket offices close.

  49. 49
    jgm2 says:

    If they’re actually getting 31% paid in to a pension fund that is, bizarrely, a good thing. It’s real money and that means they’ll be entitled to a real pension.

    I’m far more concerned with the millions of public sector workers who are getting pensions which should cost 31% of their salary but where no actual money is being put aside. They’re the fuckers we really should be getting rid of.

  50. 50
    they think we're fucking idiots says:

    Er, what happened to the blog post about that nasty Mr Helmer? It couldn’t be because The Sun Newspaper was having some disrespectful comments made about it could it?

  51. 51
    The Stilton Eater says:

    A great ruse to flush out people without a sense of humour.

    Those RMT people seem happy to cause disruption to millions and even loss of business to others but when a lone coffee shop makes a joke they get outraged.

    I suspect the usual Rent-A-Mob will be picketing their shop soon just as they protested against a TV production company over Benefits Street

  52. 52
    Anonymous says:

    10% off would make it just about affordable for the Sultan of Brunei.

  53. 53
    Sick of the greed and lies(still) says:

    I keep reading about people like Peter Hitchens going to manned checkouts to retain staff. Does this mean that the same people only get money out of a Bank during working hours from a Bank Clerk? ATM’s are the equivalent of a self serve Checkout.

  54. 54
    boris bike says:

    Post Crowe? Is he dead or sumfink?

    Good for democracy to have all sides participating.

    hey RMT fucknuts, glad you are losing pay for this you utter shithawks. can’t wait until automated trains get your jobs

    Bobw1951 says:

    In my local Morrisons, they have 8 self service of which normally 2 are out of order, and the other 6 are always need the help of an assistant due to “wrong weight”, or people not knowing how to use them properly.

    EMPLOY PEOPLE NOT MACHINES – SUPPORT THE UNIONS they fight hard for the workers they represent, we already have too many unemployed in this country as it is.

  63. 63
    Spacker Brown says:

    Shame on the EMEMY WITHIN.

  64. 64
    Luddite says:

    “EMPLOY PEOPLE NOT MACHINES” says a plonker using a computer or phone!

  65. 65
    Bobw1951 says:

    Maybe we should sack all the MPs they are the slackers with long holidays. Bring on the Revolution, off with their heads.

  66. 66

    Hope you end up on the dole one day and get F all

    Is it only ticket staff who are holiday strike and not dr*iv*ers?

  69. 69

    But they’d be working if they were in uniform, not swanning around in cafés and restaurants. Doh!

    Labour are the nasty party says:

    Bring back Bob Crow .

  79. 79
    The two Muppets says:

    This strike is all about Union troughers fighting for Bob Crows job .

  80. 80
    The two Muppets says:

    When are we going to have driverless tube trains the same as other advanced
    countries have ?

  81. 81
    TfL deserve derision says:

    TfL’s spineless management should be excluded too.

    Did they not expect more trouble after caving in to RMT demands for bonuses just for doing routine contractual shifts through the Olympics?

    Union militants have got the measure of BJohnson and his overpaid cohorts.

  82. 82
    Socialist Scum says:

    Vote Labour and get strikes!

  83. 83
    jgm2 says:

    Go fuck yourself. The tube dr*iv*ers and ticket operators can get a job that requires the same skills. In the case of ticket operators they can work at Tescos and in the case of tube dr*iv*ers – actually, you may have a point. It has to be the easiest ‘job’ in the world. I cannot think of anything that requires commensurate skill apart from, perhaps, dynamite fishing.

    Quite right

    It is time to have driverless trains the same as in some other cities.

    Snotsicle says:

    Just to clarify, the “workers” that he is referring to are the people who aren’t doing any work.
    He doesn’t mean the people who are actually working.

    The “workers” are also the ones who won’t be working for three days next week, not to be confused with the people who are working, who are presumably “non-workers” (or perhaps he uses a less generous term to refer to them).

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.”
