About: Miners Strike | Police Tactics | Flying Pickets | Trade Union | TV Eye | 1984
Locked up for going equipt to protest for your rights to work ! What next , thinking, looking.
It's weird watching these old documentaries and not seeing any fat people.
Never trust a policeman they showed their true colours in the miners strike they assaulted anybody they wanted too with no consequences free thuggery. The ones with braiding were the worst little hitlers.
Well done Maggie
There are no police chiefs like John Anderson today. Now we literally live in a communist totalitarian police state.
Ear ow we getting “ome?
Nowadays coal's virtual absence as a fuel is seen as a plus by the lefty-eco lobby. Ironic or what?
I'm so glad we closed the coal mines.
When the chief constable of Nottinghamshire is comparing the miners strike at around 18:30
in the video, to the riots of 1981, it becomes clear how different and inaccurate this comparison is. Obviously a riot is pure chaos and at the time that was partially fuelled by the high unemployment of Mrs Thatcher's government, the miners strike on the other hand was a devious, thorough and highly calculated operation carried out by the government for political and even revengeful reasons.
I really love the applaud from the miners at around 15:20
, when the only visible woman in the room speaks, clearly the miners respected her, welcomed what she is saying and were happy to be represented by a woman speaker. The miners were demonised and slated by Thatcher and a lot of the press in this country but having looked and listened to the men involved, I don't believe any of those generalisations and spiteful accusations to be true at all.
The Police office talking at around 13:45
on the video is talking pure politics when he says "well, that's your expression and not mine" as he leads the interviewer into a conclusion that is to blame the miners, but then pulls back when the interviewer attempts to clarify for the viewers what the police officer has said.
Time to move on maybe ?
Was crazy bad in Barnsley
Maggie Thatcher was determined to break up all the unions in this country and she started with obliterating the miners by literally starving them into submission , the poor fookers had no choice but to go back to work to feed their families who where on the brink of starvation because of that cunt Thatcher........The best thing Thatcher ever did was fooking die.....
Wot the fucks this pish I was expecting a baldy guy singing only u with backing singers with no musical instruments absolutely shite
This was the beginning of the end of great Britain.
Wait an interview with both points of view! We are in a foreign country. The bbc could learn a thing or two.
Thatchers 2nd biggest achievement after falklands
I was born in 93, missed all of this.
But I can guarantee there is at least 30% of my generation that aren't total snowflakes
I was raised by my grandparents in the heart of the Black Country so I've always been obsessed with everything pre 90s & the history of what went so wrong.
What the tories did back then was absolutely disgraceful
What they have done again shouldn't ever of been allowed
Systematically destroying this country and selling off to the highest bidder
It doesn't matter which side of the fence you stand over brexit, if it has done one thing
It's shown the world how corrupt the UK government is.
