Right miner July 18, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Read about this character, Patrick McLoughlin, former miner, now not merely a Tory MP, but now recently appointed Chairman of the Conservative Party and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.
The wiki page is interesting. He was in the NUM, but “became an industrial representative for the National Coal Board’s Western Area Marketing Department” and “Although a member of the NUM, he broke ranks during the 1984 miners’ strike and later came to national attention when he stood up at the 1984 Conservative Party Conference to announce that he was a working miner”.
A strange journey, no?
