86. Tuesday September 4th, 1984.

The picket at Wearmouth this morning was the most frustrating yet. We had plenty of men, over 200, but no enthusiasm or commitment. I did try to organise but no one took any notice of me and I gave up. I put this down to false optimism after yesterdays TUC resolution. A lot of men now think the end’s in sight, just as they did during the docker’s short lived revolt. I am more pessimistic and feel there is no way Thatcher is going to let Scargill have any kind of victory. We need the lights to go out and lots of support from other workers.
