Miners Pensio Fight for Justice & Fair Play - Wales
Posted by Hughesie from Aberdare on the 29th August 2016
My name is Gareth Hughes, I am a member of a small group of activists promoting an online petition hosted by 38degrees.org. Our present aim is to raise awareness of an online petition. We are appalled at the lack of awareness regarding what governments past and present have done to coal workers of all trades. Let me explain where it all started. John Major's government privatised the Mining Industry, the government also guaranteed the Coal workers pension schemes. But nothing is straight forward. John Major's government of the 1990s also dipped into the surpluses. The government in waiting was Tony Blair's 'New Labour' the shadow government castigated John Major for the theft of miners pensions. But in 2003 Blair's Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown robbed the miners pension schemes of £4billion. 2003 was the same year that Blair took the UK to war with Iraq. It has been reported that when Blair was asked where the money was coming from he replied 'I'll find it,' the mind now starts to boggle at the man's arrogance. Ever since, the government's have been helping themselves to staggering amounts of Coal Workers money (pension money). Around £9billion to date; it's a staggering amount of pensioners money.
