Orgreave-good article by David Conn 15:59 - May 18 with 983 viewsProfessor

Conn more usually writes on football and Hillsborough of course. I was 16 when this happened. The 1984/5 Miners strike affected the way I look at the world even today. The article perhaps begins to explain some of the culture of senior officers in South Yorkshire Police which culminated in tragedy five years later. It is a long piece.

The 60 s defined me Paul .the liar that was Harold Wilson

70 s too with the Unions along with pitiful management killed our industries stone dead .

We had corpse rotting as well as garbage


80s brought it all to a head . I remember being staggered at the way Yorkshire miners marched into Notts and hounded families whose men went to work. Work eh

Couldn't quite work out why six year olds were called scabs and had dog shit posted through their letter boxes

This in an area called working class


I've not fully understood why successive generations feel obliged to carry on this class war hatred and the Police for all their many short comings are the barrier to nihilism . The hatred ,the anti police stance from Labour politicians was manifested barely a hundred yards from your office.

Clearly ,Corbyn is seeking to perpetuate hate albeit with a smarmy smirk on his face

I'm genuinely sad that you two have fallen out. But such is life, I've fallen out with many people so I'd be a hypocrite if I dug either of you out for no longer being bosom buddies.
