Hi-ho, Hi-ho, it's off to work we go (Miners Strike)

Since I have an interest in mining with it's political and social connections and since mining is in the news again (New Zealanders trapped this time) here are some images from the UK mining strike. The strike took place 1984-1985, around about the time I was born, in a not so dissimilar economic climate to today.

Oh and an example of some great advertising from Saatchi when he was known for this and not for art...
