This day in UK History.

On this day in 1984, Police used riot gear for the first time since the miners’ strike began , at a picket at Orgreave, near Sheffield.  I was one of those ‘soldiers’……..first time riot shields were used on mainland Britain.  Proud to have been part of it…..not proud of the outcome.  Shame on Arthur Scargill for what he put the Miners through whilst he lived during the miners strike…..and possibly still lives in the lap of luxury and ordinary miners were/are still in poverty.
