Stick with the cloth cap, Bob
RMT leader Bob Crow is a man who knows the time of day. A staunch opponent of privatisation and the illegal aggression against Iraq, (and a supporter of capital punishment for murderers) his political views can't really be faulted. But I must admit his choice of headgear is rather puzzling. Although he has been known to wear a traditional cloth cap (above), Bob seems to have developed a rather worrying penchant for wearing a baseball cap. Come on Bob! You can't rail against globalisation (no pun intended..) yet wear the uniform of globalisation. I've no problem with Americans wearing baseball caps: baseball is a part of American culture. But it's no part of Britain's culture and to see a anti-globalisation trade union leader wearing a baseball cap is disappointing to say the least.
