Bob Crow Brigade Gun Wielding ISIS Fighters Slam Oily Smith

bob crow brigade

Hard left anti-ISIS fighters branding themselves the Bob Crow Brigade have slammed Owen “Oily” Smith’s desire to talk to ISIS. Armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles and standing in front of a wall in what appears to be a ruined town, fighters stand below graffiti which reads:

“@OwenSmith2016 Want to talk to ISIS? Tell that to the Martyrs of Manbij.

‘If you fight, you won’t always win. If you don’t fight, you will always lose.'”

The latter is a quote from deceased former RMT chief Bob Crow. This particular unit of British fighters is part of the larger International Freedom Battalion, and have previously posed with graffiti praising the rail strikers. Looks like Smith has lost the Rojava vote…

The official title of ‘Spare Room Subsidy’ was by comparison an also-ran. Despite being a benefit reduction the ‘Bedroom tax’ became the standard title used by the BBC…

Labour might call George Osborne’s proposal to make higher earners living in state housing pay market rates a ‘tax on success’ or an ‘aspiration tax’ or some such. They are perhaps brainstorming the best phrase right now for Harriet Harman to use. The most famous high earner in social housing was the late Bob Crow, who by not moving out and using his salary to buy a house instead denied a dwelling to a family lower on the income scale in greater need. This made a mockery of the Marxist mantra of ‘to each according to his needs’. Crow rented for clear ideological reasons.

The ‘Bob Crow Tax’ seems the obvious name for this measure. In Bob’s honour…
