Jumped-up Tube worker hands in his notice
Video footage shot on another passenger’s mobile phone showed Ian Morbin stomping about like a knobhead, calling a passenger "a jumped up little git" and accusing him of acting like a "little girl". Morbin also appeared to suggest that the old man (who might have fought in a war or something) should be "slung" under a train.
Following the incident at Holborn station in central London on October 15, the footage spread like wildfire across the internet, helped in no small part by the self-important busybodies who are becoming an increasingly unsavoury faction on Twitter.
TfL statement said: "Mr Ian Morbin, a customer service assistant at Holborn Tube station, has advised London Underground (LU) that he wishes to resign for personal reasons. He has informed us he would like to apologise for the incident involving a passenger at Holborn Tube station on Thursday October 15 and hopes that his actions have not detracted from the professional job done by hundreds of LU staff every day.”
“We have accepted Mr Morbin's resignation with immediate effect. As we made clear from the moment this incident was brought to our attention this kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable and does not represent the way our staff go about their jobs helping millions of customers every day.”
Meanwhile, over on Twitter, a posse is being formed after man was caught on camera spitting a piece of chewing gum on to the pavement. The posse are planning to burn his house to the ground later this afternoon.
