Subject: RE: Music: Police and Striking Miners
Guest, I am so sorry you feel like you do and I can understand why. We saw miners with nothing in their houses on Christmas Day as they had sold their furniture to buy their kids presents and have something on the table for dinner. These same men and women are still trade unionists and some of them still sing the songs of The Strike. They are proud of what they did and their part in history. It is not just 'armchair socialists' who sing about the strike. Some of them were there, took part, still sing and are still union members.
