Subject: RE: Music: Police and Striking Miners
The police weren't just licking their lips, they loved every minute of the hours of overtime they were getting paid, I worked at the Post Office at the time and in the early hours one morning sat in a cafe full of thugs, sorry policemen on their way to the picket lines, every one of them bragging about their. Scargill new car or Scargill holiday in the Bahamas or Scargill swimming pool.

A friend of mine was a police Inspector at the time, he told me how their boss told them all to get a twenty pound note out and wave it at the pickets.
