Crow's Commuters

Those pesky paparazzi are always lurking where there's sun, sea and surf and rich punters. This one caught Bob Crow, RMT union overlord, sunbathing on Copacabana beach, Brazil, during his recent £10,000 holiday. He earns £145,000 a year and lives in a subsidised council house. While the RMT was demanding Mayor Bouncy Boris meet Bob for talks, Bob was topping up his tan (CLICK). Millions of London commuters are now suffering the travel chaos of the first day of a two-day Underground strike over the closure of redundant ticket offices and the loss of 750 to 950 jobs (CLICK). The closures are a done deal. 400 ticket office clerks have applied for voluntary redundancy packages. Striking members of the RMT and TSSA are losing money. So who benefits? Bob Crow. All the sound and fury from Mr Crow is aimed at convincing his members he's doing a good job for them. How else can he justify that luxury lifestyle to which he's become accustomed?
