About: Coal Mining - Silverhill Colliery - 1992
The politics is a sideshow; the industry was fucked long before as it wasnt competitive internationally and today the UK doesnt even use that much of the stuff. These men would have all been made redundant even if coal mining had remained a major undertaking in this country because of the incredible automation in mining today. A handful of men can produce thousands of tonnes per hour today.
I'm so glad we closed the coal mines.
Trusted the Tories, scabbed the strike & got what they deserved.
Scabs got what they deserved !
Fuck em and their mine. Dirty cunts wouldnt back Yorkshire up in 71 and 84. You well n trul;y fell for the tories bullshit. Serves em right.
As a S/Yorks mineworker I spent a year on strike in '84. Looking back now it's easy to see we were all pawns in a huge political game. The govt used classic divide & rule tactics. Miner turned against miner when we should have all been united in a common cause. I'm proud to have stood up for what I believed in, I don't have hatred for Notts miners or the deputies who could have stopped all pits. But the tories & thatcher, I'll hate them til the day I die.
Serves em right, scabby bastards
