This day in History. (Well I never knew that!)

On this day in 1966, the British government declared a state of emergency a week after the nation’s seamen strike began.  I never knew this.  Well I was only 8 years old!!!   Wonder if we’ll see a similar occurrence with all the austerity cuts.  And how come there never was a state of emergency for the Miner’s Strike?
