Someone, probably the IRA, blew up the Grand Hotel in Brighton today but they missed Thatcher! Tebbit is reportedly badly injured but the rest of them got away. No one has blamed violent pickets for it yet but no doubt they’ll get round to it.
Most of the pickets I’ve spoken to are as jubilant as if we’ve won the strike. Of course, blowing up the bastards isn’t the answer but at least it shows its not just us miners who hate Thatcher and everything she stands for. They brought it upon themselves.
I spoke at Newcastle University and got a great reception. More importantly, they’ve promised to help us raise funds for the soup kitchen.
