Nothing to Crow about

So Bob Crow has joined the growing swell of celebrities and politicians expressing concerns that their phone has been hacked.  Well I suppose even union leaders need to make sure they stay firmly in the public eye. And let's face it, you’re nothing if you’re not being tapped!

I don’t know about you but my curiosity was mildly piqued when the allegations were confined to showbiz celebs but my interest started to wane once politicians got in on the act. Now – yawn, yawn – we have the unions not wanting to be left in the shade. Good lord, where will it all end?

I'm sure those scurrilous hackers didn't find anything interesting in Bob’s phone chats. It’s not as if they are going to provide major revelations about his strike strategy. We can already predict this: just pick any public celebration planned for the City and London Underground will announce a strike to coincide with it.

Maybe the calls will reveal something much darker and why he never smiles.
