About: The Miners' Strike - 30 Years of Hurt (Wales This Week) 03-03-14
You bring down Heath. You bring down Callaghan. Eventually you’re going to run into a PM who plays by different rules and learns from their predecessors mistakes
This was a very different Britain. The Union movement could have handled this better. They were sucker punched by the Thatcher government.
So glad we closed the coal mines.
This was the start of the decline of our once great county and it as gone down the pan ever since , all you have these days are me me me snowflakes moaning because they carn't buy a home to live in , what these parasites fail to grasp is the same bitch that closed down the mines also sold all the council houses creating this shortage of homes to rent or buy...... The best thing Maggie Thatcher ever did for this country was fucking die........
They should have never closed any of the pits, unless they were exhausted of coal,it cost a lot more in dole payments to the miners and the rest of the surrounding buisnese's that relied on these hard working men that went to the bowels of the earth so we could all have electricity.
Soooo nice to know that teachers in the grave nasty old evil cow .
Don't forget.........a lot of the police were soldiers.............dressed as coppers............
Please watch this guy's channel, and others similar, and please make your feelings clear to this Class Traitor https://youtu.be/qwQVhLIHPXk
Civil liberties were drastically reduced by draconian ante trade Union laws that the miners were in the front line of by Thatcher,s hard-nosed admin. 1979-90 , with her domineering character when UK and Ulster came close to being a Fascist state.
No one took on Maggie and won and to even think about taking her on was suicidal .The miners found out that to their cost
Margaret Thatcher was not one to compromise. Poor miners knew she would win from outset.Resolute lady had them in tears..
We're having the strike on our school right now in front of my school all the teachers are protesting
I wish i was born before the 80s i loved to have been a miner gone on strike it should be like that with people now sticking together not putting up with this e.u shit brexit all the way
What a great people they are........a million tory wankers wouldn't make one of these people......apart from Kinnoick
so 5000 pickets turn up at a coking plant to shut it down and the police are the bandies for enforcing the law and rights of the workers in this plant, its a joke i understand there maybe an enquiry now if Corbyn is elected well i hope it is to also prosecute those pickets that regarded extreme violence as a legitimate right, the police only stood up to those thugs who thought they had the right to bully people and anyone who thought that the police would send only a couple of offices to control a mob of 5000 miners is an idiot and they got all they deserved people like scargill had no interest in miners he just used them as pawns in his anti government agenda as history has now shown he retired on a fat pension and benefits paid for by union funds and was paid while miners relied on handouts union officials should only get strike pay like the rest
We should have had a national ballot
Welsh miners voted not to strike
Those Miners fought a tough tough batlle...They will be remembered
30 years on ....Another superb article from Paul Starling.
Please read & share ..as Face book has blocked me from doing so !
EXPOSING THE BIG LIE OF THE GENOCIDAL REGIME OF ZIONIST 'ISRAEL'.
The foul, fascist, racist, Zionist regime of so-called 'Ysrael' is deliberately interfering with your democratic rights.
It has bought, and corrupted large numbers of our 'so-called' MP 'representatives'.
It has paid for flights (to the stolen land of Palestine), hospitality, and 'education' (propaganda) to 'teach them' how to be its paid-for lackeys.
I have posted on my Facebook timeline the MPs and 'Lords' who are 'Friends of Israel'.
Please, check the list. Challenge them. It is irrelevant whether they are your MP. They are all guilty of doing the work of a fictitious, political regime, bent on genocide, which is deeply racist and intends to obliterate any trace of the Palestine they stole, and the Palestinians, they are killing.
'The United Nations determines that Zionism is a form of racism, and racial discrimination'. UN General Assembly Resolution 3379. November, 10th, 1975.
THE BIG LIE. 'WE ARE SEEKING PEACE'.
The murderous propagandists of Zionist 'Israel' claim, claim, and claim again that what 'Israel' wants is peace. That is a deliberate lie. A deliberate way of affecting your mind, free-thinking, and democratic rights!
The Zionist regime of 'Israel' is hell-bent on genocide. It says it will stop at nothing. If that means buying the political 'so-called' 'representatives' of the UK, USA, every other country, so be it. The MPs and 'Lords' involved have chosen to become bought propagandist sheep. Please don't be the same!
THE FOULEST LIE THEY HIDE BEHIND. 'We want a TWO-State Solution'.
In 1917 the land of Palestine (85% Arabs, 4% Jews) was, illegally, handed to the Zionist organisation, by the British Tory government.
Ever since the Zionists have slashed, burned, murdered, and stolen the only 'State' on that land, the State of Palestine.
The Zionists, in other words, are in no position to seek a Two-State 'solution'. For they do not own any 'State'.
But, it gets worse!
THE ZIONISTS REAL AGENDA.
Is to create ONE 'State'. The fictitious Zionist 'State' stolen from the people of Palestine.
Just two years after the UN declared the Zionist Project racist and illegal, the Head (Chief of Staff) of the Israel 'Defence' Force, Raphael Eitan made clear (1978) what Ysrael's real aim was, and is:
"We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimetre of Israel. We shall use the ultimate force
until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all-fours".
IF YOU CARE ANYTHING ABOUT THE UK, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR HOME, YOUR COMMUNITY, YOUR DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS, DECENCY, JUSTICE, STAND UP AGAINST THE INTERFERENCE OF THE BARBARIC REGIME OF ZIONISM IN THE LIFE AND INTERNAL POLITICS OF BRITAIN!.
And make their paid-agents the 'Friends Of Israel' in the House of Commons, and House of Lords, accountable for doing the dirty work of Zionism.

The unions fucked the miners not Thatcher. Deal with it.
