A reminder for Ian Jones
That year long miners strike involved 16.000 workers. it saw people killed on the picket lines and others die in accidents as they scavenged for coal to keep their families warm
Some 11,312 people were arrested  5,653 were put on trial almost 200 were held in prison
Thatcher's government won the day the way they did so shall never be forgoten
The miners strike proved that the Tories did not care about the victims of their policies, And neither do they today.

A reminder for Eddie Legge: 9th Nov 1989 The Berlin Wall comes down.
The Wall was finally breached by jubilant Berliners on 9 November 1989, unifying a city that had been divided for over 30 years.

The 28-mile (45 km) barrier dividing Germany's capital was built in 1961 to prevent East Berliners fleeing to the West.

The state-funded Centre for Contemporary History (ZZF) in Potsdam has given the official figure of 136 deaths, including people attempting to escape, border guards, and innocent parties. However, researchers at the Checkpoint Charlie Museum and some others had estimated the death toll to be significantly higher.

Another reminder for the Eddie Legges:

World War I, and the immortal line about British troops being "Lions, lead by donkeys".

It would be an insult to those REAL warriors to level that at mere class ones.

If he - or anyone wasn't - in fact I can't actually make a comment, because I can't fathom out what that statement is trying to get at, and it's not a question either (is it?).

Amazing, 'Eddie Legge' has developed rhetorical questions into er... rhetorical statements.

Btw - does any other member of this forum have any views?
This is beginning to look like a troll pack setting upon an OAP.

I accept that posters are probably expressing the views of others but I think that the only way to get through to them (the Eddies) is to show that it isn't just a few who are jarred off with being taken for fools.

Either that or his detractors launch 'him' into cyber-Coventry.

(Mmm looks like I need another holiday soon )  Very Happy

And I'd be interested in what you did during the Miners' Strike, particularly which picket lines you attended, which fund-raising events you organised, etc.

For a staunch Labourite Eddie you didn't do much did you? The average person in the street did as much as you did. Embarassed

I wouldn't think you were in a position to criticise anyone, let alone someone who spent the strike defending their job and community.

All mouth no action. I wouldn't fancy being next to you at the barricades   Laughing

For someone who made such a fuss of swearing on forum did you really have to use the lowest form of swear word imaginable.
And there can be no mistake what word was meant as you gave a very clear description of it.


Tell me Eddie what would you call me if i was a striking miner who went back to work.
Not that it is any of your nosy business?

What action did you take to support the strike via your trade union Eddie?
