1985 All over again

num-speeches-129Well not really like 1985 at all really, I was in my last year of college at the time and Arthur Scargill was sporting a shreadded wheat hair cut, whilst berating all and sundry that would listen to him. He also had his hands full with Margaret Thatcher (if that doesn’t put an un-wanted image in your mind, I have misjudged you).

Tonight at the Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London Arthur Scargill, Ricky Tomlinson (better know for his role in the Royale Family, but also in his day a union activist that was jailed for two years as one of the two Shrewsbury Two, although he could be the Shrewsbury Two on his own).

  1. Ah, Ricky Tomlinson, whose easy shift from far right extremism in his youth to far left now is living proof that there’s no fundamental difference between those positions.

    Scargill was a twerp then and remains one now.
