'I snubbed Aslef cash'.

SACKED train drivers' leader Shaun Brady yesterday claimed the union tried to buy his silence.

Mr Brady, axed after a barbecue brawl at Aslef's HQ, said he was offered a year's money - about pounds 70,000 - to go quietly.

After failing to get a hearing at the union's annual conference, he told the Mirror: "A member of the executive committee suggested it last night.

"I can't say I wasn't tempted. But I'm not going to take the 40 pieces of silver.I believe people have a right to their say."

Aslef president Dave Tyson denied an attempt to buy off Mr Brady - who is fighting his dismissal.
