This morning’s picket at Woodside was quiet as usual but the pickets themselves were triumphant about what happened yesterday and kept congratulating me. I had to tell them that I had done nothing and it was them who did the hard work. I managed to sell 27 copies of Socialist Worker and pointed out Scargill’s call to picket Orgreave. If we can force the Lodge to reverse decisions then we can also force them to send us to Orgreave.

Paul Foot has caused a real stir in the Daily Mirror by revealing documents which prove that Thatcher told British Rail bosses to make whatever concessions necessary to rail workers to stop a second front opening.I’ve been proudly telling pickets that Paul is a member of the SWP.
