Which part of "without the shit stirring unions with their class war" didn't you understand? The foreign owners were in "green fields" position because the real workers had woken up to the fact that the union leaders were largely Trotskyists hell bent on the destruction of British industry.

You really do need to do some serious reading. And that doesn't mean just the Mail.

Ah resorting to your last line of defence. Perhaps I should read something totally unbiased like the Daily Mirror - not.

Ok then. Where did you get the 'Trotskyists' bit from, then? Have you studied both Trotsky and unions leaders sufficiently to have made that judgment?
Or could it be you read it somewhere?

I wouldn't wipe my a**e with either.

Yes and they weren't union leaders they were shop stewards.

Research does often require reading you know - or maybe you don't

In times of high inflation, hardly unusual?
Tell me, harry, were you happy to live on the same wage year after year in those days? Or are you simply like most other union bashers - expect to get a decent pay rise always, not not want others to?

Let's see now. Suppose there was a large deposit of good quality coal in a readily accessible area to get to, no mining way out to sea or such all in stable ground unworked ground, all as good as it gets.
Question would any company go and mine that coal and be able to sell it and make a profit from doing so in 2015?..

Probably not while gas is readily available.

Odd that places like Australia do that fine even when they export gas as well.

That isn't going to happen in Britain today, all of those have been found and exploited long ago now.

Yes. That happens in other parts of the first world today. Places that are a lot further away from where it is used than Britain is. And the price of coal was a lot higher in real terms at the time when Scargill was destroying that industry so dramatically.

In case you've missed it, it was a hypothetical situation to prove a point..

Like where, Europe?.. Deep mined coal not the dragged off the surface open cast type?..

That is obviously relatively close to where it would be used.

Yes, there is deep mined coal in places like Australia and the US.
