I went up to Scotland this afternoon after a quiet morning on the Westoe picket line. Lads just chatted and speculated on where the strike is going.

I was invited to go to a miners benefit for Polmaise Colliery by an old friend of mine, Stuart Hepburn. He’s an actor and his theatre company,’Badinage’ were performing at Fallin Miners Welfare to raise funds for pickets. Apparently Scotland isn’t solid and they’re having a lot of problems at Bilston Glen. It was interesting chatting to the pickets and the play itself was very entertaining. Mind you, I did feel a bit guilty coming on my own but Kath was working so I didn’t have much choice. At least it was a change from the usual.
