To remember the Miners Strike of a quarter of a century ago, I thought that I would upload this news coverage of the pivotal moment in what was a pivotal action in recent British History. After Orgreave it was pretty much downhill for the miners. The result: decimated communities, fractured families, alcohilism, suicides and a final move into the monetarist policies of the Thatcher government. It is curious that there are those out there that believe that the defeat of the miners was a victory for democracy. Of course what they mean is that it was a victory for those of you who champion economic viability above everything else - and look where that has led us: decimated communities, fractured families, alcoholism, suicides and blandness. But hey, what the fuck! We are richer!
