Make the August Bank Holiday Bob Crow Day
As there was a move to make rename this Day Margaret Thatcher Day, I believe that we should look at renaming it Bob Crow Day. This is in recognition of a great Trade Union leader, who did what it said on the tin..He represented his members brilliantly..I never met the man but I had the utmost respect for him as a trade unionist.
The Trade Union movement lost a true fighter for the workers on 11th March 2014.
Lets do him the honour of getting enough signatures that this has to be debated in the House of Commons.
