Wonder why the visuals were not corrupted in the London area? Sabotage?
Sad to think 30 odd years after this interview the last deep pit closed in the uk, bring deep coal mining to end.
What a lying hound he was, a steady increase in teenagers, most of the pits were closed down by 91, so those teenagers would have been out on the scrapheap by the ages of 23 or 24
Destroying many communities and lives in the country, as a political puppet.
Some say he was The Terminator.
Thatcher recruited an American hit man... He done his job.....
This bastard was responsible for the closure of the steel industry and the mining industry
Thatcher was right to close unprofitable pits. If she had not taken on the Unions over this matter we would still have greedy Unions inconveniencing the public with their wild cat public transport strikes.
Good information, thanks for this THAMES TV!!

Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
