Very sad news to hear that the RMT Union Leader died suddenly in the early hours of the morning.
Bob Crow has been described today as one of the most successful Union Leaders, with membership growing significantly under his leadership. Many paying their respects today describe him as a true Working Class Hero.
I remember watching this interview a few weeks back on the Politics Show and thought... if a person needed someone in their corner... fighting for thier working conditions.. Bob Crow's the man.

We need more warriors like that don't we
Whether you agreed with him or not.. he did what he believed in, and he did it with conviction
It's a huge loss, to his family and friends, to the union, to the members, to working people, and to politics.
Sure we may have felt the inconvenience of a tube strike, but he was fighting for the workers, fighting for their jobs, for their working conditions.. livelihoods
and that's pretty cool really
RIP Bob Crow
