Bob Crow held us all to ransom
THE adulation of Bob Crow seems to have missed the point. Yes, he achieved a lot for his members. However, how many of his demands were met because the management had little choice when the alternative was the paralysis of London?
He kept his finger on the industrial equivalent of a nuclear trigger and made sure that everyone knew that he was prepared to use it. He backed this up by showing scant consideration of the consequences to other workers and their employers.
