BREAKING: Huge congratulations to Fiona Bruce who made the wise decision of not letting Mick Lynch finish a single point on Question Time so he couldn't embarrass her x
I have been going on @bbcquestiontime
for over 30 years. I have never known a presenter interrupt a panellist as often as Fiona Bruce (salary £405,000) did with Mick Lynch. Crudely partisan.
Mick Lynch is one of many workers who have previously been blacklisted for their trade union activity. For @tribunemagazine
, I explored the blacklisting scandal- where companies use the blacklisting of trade union officials as a tool of fear and control.
We've been contacted by loads of newspapers & radio stations over the whole Mick Lynch thing. Just to clarify, he is our uncle, but we haven't seen him since 1989 when he had a fist fight with our dad in our granny's garden. Something to do with the Sunday roast. Miss him.😕
"If you're not bargaining, you're begging, and the British working class should not have to beg."
- Mick Lynch
Damn fucking right.
Enough is enough. Solidarity.
I’m wondering what Tory they will send out for Mick Lynch to disembowel tomorrow.
Nadine would be a good shout. Can you imagine the carnage?
The establishment knows just how big of a wave they are trying to hold back.
That’s why they went for Mick Lynch last night. It’ll be all-hands-on-deck against strikes from here.
But it won’t work – people don’t just want pay rises, they *need* them!
Mick Lynch and the @RMTunion
aren’t just standing up for rail workers.
They’re standing up for every person who’s been crushed into using foodbanks by government policy and big business for the last 12 years.
This is bigger than trains.
It feels like a tide has turned...

Enough is enough - The bloviated sex yeti Johnson must go with the rest of his cronies to follow!
UP THE PEOPLE!!!

So now we know. It was apparent from last night's Question Time that Fiona Bruce had agreed with her Tory handlers that she should shut down Mick Lynch's replies to stop him landing blows on their Establishment. He still won on points.

Mick Lynch has won himself a bunch of new fans - including some famous faces like Gary Lineker - after his blistering appearance on BBC’s Question Time https://t.co/dxp9C8v4Py
Mick Lynch keeps saying the money is nearly always there, it just gets distributed to the elite, the wealthy & the shareholders, whilst guilting low wage workers to blindly accept pay cuts, pay freezes, austerity. People are angry & have finally had enough! https://t.co/dAhqM7kpHC
Get out with Mick Lynch @RMTunion
today rally Kings Cross 2pm as Boris Johnson gets battered like a sausage
Mick Lynch on Sky this morning: "For 12 years Network Rail gave us a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies. They withdrew that last years in preparation for this dispute, because they were getting ready for it". Solidarity with all @RMTunion
members on strike today✊🏽 https://t.co/2LAKy7skqy
Mick Lynch from the @RMTunion
on how the negotiations with the Train Companies have gone this week, explaining the companies are still demanding slashing workers terms/conditions, cutting thousands of jobs & recontracting workers on worse pay & terms/conditions (i.e. fire&rehire) https://t.co/z03z4cfYQ1
Mick Lynch from the @RMTunion
on Sky News this morning explaining that Network Rail issued a formal notice of imposing redundancies DURING negotiations with the union. Is that really the act of someone whose priority is reaching a settlement agreeable to both parties? https://t.co/ohQfxkb3o7
Is Mick Lynch on Paul Mason's spidograph yet? 🤔
Shameful Tory , didn’t let mick lynch finish a sentence but he still handed the Tory her arse with her network rail letter . Fiona Bruce is disgraceful @BBC https://t.co/EaiHW81C88
I see that Mick Lynch guy is still the poster boy for the economically illiterate this morning 🙄
If you’re still wondering why @RMTunion
are on strike, read this from Mick Lynch. Tells you what the gov means by modernisation #RMTstrikes https://t.co/keb9Bj10nX
Mick Lynch being interviewed on Sky News just now, stressing the importance of "constructive dialogue" in negotiations. We could do with Mr Lynch in parliament where the ability to engage constructively has all but disappeared.
Mick Lynch vaporising this Home Office minister on Question Time is a very satisfying watch #questiontime #RailStrikes
Mick Lynch is formidable and his deadpan replies are a pleasure to listen to. If Tories don’t like what he says they need to make concessions and negotiate a deal because he’ll be there until they do! #JohnsonOut152 #ToryPoverty
A great digest and summary of what a superb job Mick Lynch of the @RMTunion
is doing. And, what an absolute disgrace many in the media are. Our freedoms and futures are at stake. Massive respect to those who are standing up for that. https://t.co/Zh8vhI3DuH
