As the Crow flies...

Bob Crow has been re-elected to the TUC General Council in the contested election for seats to represent unions with fewer than 100,000 members.

Bob got 341,000 votes, 12,000 more than the next placed candidate.

It's three years since Bob was knocked off the General Council. Being a vocal and effective militant isn't always the key to easy popularity in the trade union movement.

Given the fights we face over the coming year it has to be a good thing that a strong and loud left wing voice will once more be heard at the General Council.
