    Common sense seems to be a rare thing nowadays. Anyone who would've stopped for a minute to think about it would've realised it's just bad form to pick such a location.

    I can't say I blame the museum though, as surely they can use the income to stay open.

    I shouldn't bother, lad. Looking at the thread on jobseekers' allowance it looks as though this board has become wick with Tories.

    I hear you regarding income but come on, Tories partying in a closed down pit. It has gone viral now, about 2000 will turn up if it goes ahead.

    I think publishing it like this is making it more of a target for people to go to (both protesters and Tories alike). Dewsbury Tory party can't have that many members and without publicity like this nobody would have even realised it was one - and there aren't that many places in Dewsbury to go to for an original venue.

    I normally take any opportunity to criticize the Tories - and they are certainly making it easy at the minute - but this isn't one of them. Caphouse wasn't even a strike victim - it did close in 1985, but the reserves had gone.

    Obviously you weren't a miner or from a mining family or you would see what we see .
    Although a lot of non mining people can see why this is a no no.

    I can envisage trade unions in ex mining areas putting busses on for the ex miners to go and tell them what they think.
    At least I hope they do , I'm in

    S
    Shame it doesn’t mention the reasons why pits were closed though under Wilson. It was acknowledged at the time that under Labour many pits closed were ‘worked out’ and others no longer geologically workable. Were any closed under Labour simply just to fight the whole Trade Union movement? Did Wilson create an uneven playing field and subsidise a ‘dash for gas’ in the energy market. So answer to your title thread is No I haven’t seen anything like this.

    Caphouse or Overton only closed because they had exhausted the coal reserves anyway, so whether the Tories have their annual dinner there pretty much has zero significance. People always looking backward to things they cannot change rather than focusing on the future..

    Perhaps we should scrap Remembrance Sunday and other anniversaries then. It’s not about that particular Pit itself it’s about the coalfields situation and The Tory Party’s systematic closure programme that served nothing to do for the good of the country but a political bias only. Ask yourself why this Dewsbury Tory group chose the venue and so close to the Anniversary of the return to work following the. 85-85 strike

    Move on? What an incredibly simplistic and quite frankly embarrassing thing to say.

    Generations of family’s from our area worked the pits and what happened in 1984 ripped those family’s apart. Our area and our heritage thrives on these honest, genuine, hard working men.

    There will always be a place to remember and events like the one organised should be challenged and debated.
