I can relate to that. My understanding though was mining was being subsidized by the taxpayer and they had a very powerful trade union prone to striking on a whim like the Tube Drivers of today.Well, being Scottish and from a family of coal miners stretching back generations, from a working class mining area that was transformed into a run down unemployment black spot, I might have a certain biased perspective on the rancid old cunt, I guess.
But I'm not tarring all miners with the same brush here. Like most of us many were just working class grafters caught in the crossfire. I'd never begrudge an honest working man.
I think Thatcher sowed the seeds but Blair and Brown are far worse for what they did. And I don't think I'm wrong when I say that 11 million is just the official figure and probably vastly under the actual number.Population of UK is 11 million people more now than when Thatcher is PM. You blaming the housing crisis on that and not 11 million extra people or Blair and Browns artificial boom by housing credit?
Shit, border agency recently said they'd miscounted immigration figures for the last few years.
Those two completely and irreversibly ruined the the UK forever via their open doors immigration policy. Public services, housing availability and pricing, lowering wages and cultural destruction. I hope these two motherfuckers burn in hell.
