Bob Crow: Beligerent, Bolshy, British

The RMT's motto is "Agitate, Educate, Organise". Bob Crow was a living embodiment of that philosophy, often seeming to relish his status as a bolshy villain.

His sudden death comes at a time of great change for the workers he led. It's too soon to establish how they will fare without him -- but breaking free of his shadow will be a huge challenge for whoever succeeds him.
