jimbo, from your comment that the miners needed screwing can I assume that you never worked miles underground at a coal face, breathing in all the dust for hours every day and fucking up your lungs and life for £25 a week? Scargil was right - they deserved £100 a week. Thatcher decimated whole communities in her personal attack on the unions.
She became a megalomaniac as she believed her own spin-doctors.
i had/have every sympathy with a miner's job - i've seen it at first hand in south africa, and believe me that place makes a british mine look like a cosy front parlour, but they were holding the nation to ransom every year. All the other unions were jumping on the same bandwagon. The country was utterly fucked and a very unhappy place to be. Her only mistake was to transfer th epower from the unions to the banks. in both caeses the power corrupted, and eventually broke the country.
