There is intimidation every day in the Nottinghamshire coalfields. It is planned intimidation, executed in cold blood and it goes completely unreported in the Fleet Street press.
The reason is simple. It’s the police, the Coal Board and scabs who mete it out and the pickets are on the receiving end.
Incidents range from the sick – ringing up the wife of a striking Ollerton miner who was in hospital for cancer treatment to tell her he had died – to the gross intimidation seen in Blidworth last week.
Even children are affected.
