Thread Name: Music: Police and Striking Miners
Subject: RE: Music: Police and Striking Miners
My abiding memories of those sad days are of the Metropolitan Police officers forcing their way into the homes of striking miners, and terrorising their wives and children, all on the orders of the Right Honourable Bitch for Finchley. Such tactics succeeded in setting back police work in what was left of those communities by twenty years, but then her basic philosophy was to totally destroy any sense of community and co-operation betweeen the working classes of the UK.
