South Wales NUM have been fined £50,000 by the Tory courts and their assets have been seized for contempt of court. What else can anyone have but contempt for a system run by the ruling class for the ruling class? Surely this action will spur the rest of the TUC into the fight to support us. Not before bloody time!

I’m frustrated at being out of action but for once I have to pay attention to my family. Mind you, I did manage to go along to a picket line at Steetley Quarry, County Durham this morning by telling Kath there would be no trouble. No one seemed to know why we were here other than Dolomite, used in steelmaking, was being stored there along with Polish coal. There were about 700 men present and we managed to stop all the lorries going in. The picket was broken up by rumours of riot police being on their way. Bollocks, but at least we had a victory to celebrate.
