Wrong to blame pit closures on Mrs T; VOICE OF THE NORTH.
It was not the then Mrs Thatcher who was responsible for pit closures, but the result of the industry's own militancy, aided and abetted by smoke-filled meetings at No 10 Downing Street during the tenancy of James Callaghan. Does anyone remember that famous remark: "Crisis, what crisis?" I have no quarrel with those who do not share my opinions provided they do not set out deliberately to distort and mislead. Hatred is an emotive word.
