We want to make it clear that we can no longer tolerate a situation where sponsored MPs oppose official union policy. The miners are entitled by virtue of their sponsorship to tell their MPs which way to vote.
Scargill quotes
The strike...offered a challenge against the heart of the capitalist system...what I am thinking about...is the influence exercised by the strike on British society.
Scargill
My father still reads the dictionary every day. He says your life depends on your power to master words.
