Bob Crow, the last class [...].

Bob Crow, the last class hero BOB Crow RIP. Like Marmite you either liked or hated him.

Could he be the last of the genuine working class heroes? Under his watch he made sure that his members were paid a proper living wage with working conditions to match. He also fought tirelessly against Government cuts, protecting his union members to the very last.

As a mark of respect and appreciation for all that he'd achieved it would be a nice gesture if all RMT union members stopped work during the funeral.

Although Bob Crow has gone, the working class struggle will still carry on.

M Bach, Stirchley BOB Crow was perhaps the last trade unionist in the trade union movement. He was a leader of an industry that is facing massive changes in working practices.

I was a member of the RMT and chairman of Birmingham New Street and I had a lot of differences with Bob and his henchmen, but I admired Bob as he was a man who stood up for his principles and, like Dennis Skinner MP, a breed of union man with that belief in the working man.

Bob will be sorely missed and my condolences to his family.
