Bob Crow dead
He was a proper old school union leader. I think we need more of them.

Am going to assume (in hope) that Hilldodger’s comment was an attempt at some sort of wit around the way that many on the left greeted and anticipated Thatcher’s death. It was, however, either tasteless or unfunny, so failed on both counts for me.
Not a man I agreed with, but he did his job well. Doesn’t deserve any scorn or hatred, though.Posted 4 years agofreeagentMember
RIP – probably the best of his generation – and you’d have certainly wanted him on your side..
I didn’t agree with his politics, but he certainly had more backbone than 90% of those in politics today (yes – I know he wasn’t technically ‘in politic’)
52 is way too young.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Never good to hear of anyone passing young. A relative of mine works on the tube, he’s very well paid with generous work terms and a gold plated pension, so for that he can thank the fact the tube in Unionised. The rest of us as passengers have to pay high ticket prices as a result. Seems bizarre to me a Union leader can earn £100k plus plus plus and live in a council/subsidised house.
Another friend went to School with Bob Crow, he didn’t have anything good to say about him.Posted 4 years ago
