Reply Link Bob 11 May 2012 at 16:59 is the union paying Crow’s legal fees? If not, how does a tube driver afford this kind of legal advice? Reply Link Anonymous 11 May 2012 at 17:02 How can this possibly be classed as libel, I would have put his name at the top of the list of things trying to cause grave harm to Londoners. Unfortunately he also succeeds time and again. Reply Link Anonymous 14 May 2012 at 12:11 How does the Mayor afford this type of legal advice, are all Londoners paying for it? Or is the Mayor himself paying as he happens to be personally minted? Reply Link Anonymous 14 May 2012 at 14:02 @Anonymous 12.11pm I don’t suppose the mayor has a choice in taking this type of advice, he is being sued. Its probably still cheaper to pay the costs of a defence, if you think you can win- and he does have the truth and honestly held belief defences as pointed out above, than just to shell out the damages. If i had a choice, I’d rather that Londoners pay Boris’ defence fees than pay even more to Bon Crow, he’s taken us for a ride for toomany years now.

Love the pun – but as a matter of fact Bob Crow has never taken us for a ride he actively prevents it by organising strikes for bonuses (sorry – for safety reasons) which is precisely why I despise him.
