Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Doors open at 9am -

 

 Hatfield Main is still a working mine and was ironically targeted by Maggie to be closed the first in Doncaster.

Not at all, Hatfield had to produce 26,000 tons to break even while in the hands of British Coal, after a management buy out that figure went down to 6,000 tons.

So not only are you saying she saved the mining industry, you are saying the workers, working practices and systems were so bad that once it went private they only had to produce slightly more than 1/4 of previously profitable production estimated levels to remain profitable?

 

Sounds like you are arguing for privatisation.

If you call one working mine being left out of ten then yes and I didn't mention working practices or systems but because you've mentioned them I can only tell you what I've been told, since going private there has been more major accidents in the industry.

 

When the mine was in the hands of BC it had to hire it's equipment from BC which forced up the break even tonnage and it also employed 2,000 men, when it went private it employed less men and the equipment belonged to the mine.

I know, i know you are totally correct. I was joking.

 

The downside is the mining unions were right when she targeted them, their problem was crying wolf too many times in the past meant the majority of the population did not believe them.

Cried wolf,

 

The attacks on the miners and other heavy industries started many years before 1984, the seeds where sown after the Ridley report in 1974 which suggested contingency planning to defeat any challenge from trade unions.

 

 The Tory government had manoeuvred for years to avoid a premature battle with the miners. In 1981 sweeping pit closures were announced, and then withdrawn when a wave of strikes swept the coalfields. The Tories were determined that the battle would come when the government was ready and thought the time right. In 1981 they weren't ready.

So strike at the drop of a hat then, cut off power to millions, bully others into not working with traveling mobs, let the working masses suffer now as some day the Tories will target us! They are trying to destroy us!

And again. 

And again.

And again.

 

Bravo guys That will really get the public support at some point in the future when you are right.....

What Marauder has forgot to add is they were charging £3+ a pint in 1985 :).

my brother says he's dropped on lucky.

he was a miner, now he's a theatre porter at Pinderfields hospital

 

that's not the lucky part: the lucky part is that he was on nights yesterday and he'll be in bed all day today
