    Unhappy Bob Crow has died aged 52

    "It is with the deepest regret that RMT has to confirm that our General Secretary Bob Crow sadly passed away in the early hours of this morning.

    "The union's offices will be closed for the rest of the day and the union will make further announcements in due course."
    BBC reports aneurysm and massive heart attack. Utterly unexpected and sudden death.

    BBC News - RMT union general secretary Bob Crow dies

    Many hated him for his policies but please don't get too politically heated. 52 is way too young to go!

    Controversial to the end:

    MPs deserve pay increase, says Bob Crow
    BBC News - MPs deserve pay increase, says Bob Crow

    RIP. A big man, with strong ideals. He definitely had a strong influence over the rail industry!

    A wily negotiator who stood up for his union members and helped win them better terms and conditions - and increased the number of union members by 30% - surely no connection between those facts?? Look and learn Labour!
