Thatcher simply had a spiteful agenda - to destroy the working classes (whatever that entails). Hence, encouragement for tenants to buy their council house. What a stain on humanity she left. Grown & proud men weeping in front of their families. Witnessed this first hand.
Respect Josh. I from line of miners on English side (surprisingly, not Welsh side). My Dad was a shop steward. Maybe if the ballot & violence issues had been resolved, the miners would have won. Who knows eh? I can still recall the taxi driver being killed by concrete posts through his windscreen & battle of Orgreave - dozens could have been killed that day.
Another music dagger to Thatcher. Interesting aside, Morrissey was interviewed by Special Branch after song released. https://youtu.be/smzsIONNh0w
