Six-figure RMT boss Crow lives in "home meant for the poor"

By Jonathan Isaby

Bob Crow RMT boss Bob Crow is the subject of a revealing story in today's Sunday Times (£):

"The rail union firebrand Bob Crow has saved up to £80,000 in rent by living in a housing association home intended for less well-off people, despite enjoying a six-figure pay package.

"Crow’s family is estimated to pay about half the market rent on a three-bedroom property in northeast London even though the former Communist party member earns £145,000 a year."
