    Was a bit before my time. I understand the basics of it and what happened but can someone explain the exact sequence of events to me objectively and/or from a Barnsley point of view?

    Explain to me like you’re explaining to someone who doesn’t have much of a clue!

    Also, spare the abuse on my ignorance. I want to learn about this in detail

    You can forget "objectively" on here. And rightly so.

    Are you an ethical or subjective objectivist?

    1. Thatcher wants to close mines
    2. Miners go on strike to prevent closures
    3. “Scabs” work anyway

    First question- what did going on strike do if mines were to be closed anyway?

    Again, plan on reading so bare with me!

    I prefer baked beans to mushy peas with my fish and chips, if that helps.

    That is clearly your downfall.

    I also like mint sauce on my peas. That makes me even more out on a limb.
