CROW TIME TO SPLIT.

Union boss Bob Crow called for the trade union movement to split from the Labour Party in a speech at Durham Miners' Gala yesterday.

The RMT leader said they need a new party to represent them as Labour are "failing them on the big issues".

He said: "The sad truth now is on the main policy issues like cuts and privatisation - you cannot put a fag paper between Labour and the Liberal-Tory Coalition.

"The achievements of Labour in the years after World War II should never be underestimated but they are now history.

"The time for a new party of Labour that fights as hard for the working class as the Tories fight for their class is now."

The RMT were expelled from Labour in 2004.
