Rich union chief defends rented Council house.



Trade union leader Bob Crow has sensationally defended living in a Council house even though he earns over £133,138 a year.

Crow responded to LBC presenters questions about living in his rented accommodation at the expense of the taxpayer by saying, he didn't want to leave his friends and move away from the area. Crow alluded that social housing shouldn't just be for poor people! tbg. is obviously very confused at Crows response as surely that is exactly who social housing is for - It is for those whom can't afford to buy or rent privately.

It is quite shameful that a man on £133,138 a year plus expenses should be taking up social housing space and preventing those that really need it from moving up the very long list.
