I saw Bob Crow on a Johnny Vaughan chat show once. He did okay.
Andy Gilchrist (of FBU infamy) was on question time during the lead up to the strike a few years back and I seem to remember him doing pretty well too. However, it’s more a question of awareness of who these people are rather than thier lack of ability in front of the camera. Most people couldn’t name the Gen Secs of the big four unions which is different to the 1970s when they were household names (for good or bad reasons).
