About: Lord Kinnock - The 1984 Miners' Strike and the Death of Industrial Britain
Another in the long line of traitor labour leaders.
What's the Book ?
The seaside industry was screwed in the sixties when the miners decided to spend their money in Benidorm instead of Blackpool. Then mines were screwed in the eighties when the few remaining B&Bs decided to use gas and not coal. WHAT GOES ROUND COMES ROUND.
At least no more young men will have to spend the best years of their lives down a dirty stinking Coal mine. Thanks for your Help Lord Kinnock, when governments want to screw the working class according to kinnock the workers should just bow down like sheep. Never mind kinnock your son has a cushy job as an MP. Lord Scumbag kinnock Go to the former mining communities and see how many ex miners sons have a decent job.
Lord Kinnock what a Scumbag.
He's right what he says, especially about the disastrous decision not to have a ballot. However he didn't say that 30 years ago for fear of splitting the Labour Party.
lapped up the EU Cream for the last 25 years as an also-ran. very nice
Scumbag class traitor
Scab self serving traitor do one you Tory wannabe from red Salford with love
Arthur Scargill didnt deserve getting Neil Kinnocks knife in his back. Neil Kinnock your LORDSHIP wants to lecture us on socialism and how to fight social struggles, the man who rode on the back of the Labour Party in order to further his career. The man who threw real socialists out of the Labour Party and threw out clause 4 preparing the way for Tony Blair to turn it into a Tory Party mark 2. Thank You LORD Kinnock.
Kinnock is angry that Thatcher protected fuel supplies for families and did not allow the unions barons to freeze old people to death in order to protect their own greed.
Unions are a business designed to make profit for their bosses and ruin jobs.
2.5 million UK jobs lost from 1968 to 1979 mainly down to USSR agent Jack Jones and the Unions.
They wanted to destroy people power, democracy, free markets, human rights.
Industry and car manufacturing increased under Thatcher.
Lord Kinnock has changed his tune of late. Typical politician blows with the wind. Well I remember what bollocks you talked in the 90s about the name 'Labour' just being a brand. And you are entirely wrong cos every industry was decimated with or without a Scargill. Once the energy industry was privatized - Coal was over. And a ballot would probably been lost - cos New Labour pricks like you, the Tory press, the media - would have soft-soaped the miners back to work. You scabbed it you twat.
By 1984, Labour had lost the 1983 election, and was seen as too far left. Kinnock could not support Scargill because he was trying to move Labour more to the centre. Despite that, he was right not to help Scargill, who was a die-hard Marxist, and who had made the strike into a political action. Kinnock had the intelligence and vision not to help him.
What he says right at the end is for me the proof why Kinnock "was not available" to attend Baroness Thatcher's funeral. "Already planned to attend the funeral of a local councillor in Wales." was the official statement.
