The Barnsley HQ of the 1984 miners' strike is buzzing again, as host to a Unite scheme aimed at empowering the community

The small wood-panelled office, where piles of "Coal not Dole" stickers vie for space with posters decrying the government's bedroom tax, has already seen its fair share of history.

It was from this room in the Barnsley headquarters of the National Union of Mineworkers that Arthur Scargill fought the 1984/85 miners' strike one of the most bitter industrial disputes of the 20th century.

Magnum photographers prove British industry did not die with Thatcher 22.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The famous picture agency has been hunting for the new faces of British industry in factories and plants across the UK. The resulting exhibition is a striking portrait of working life today From wave machines to syrup makers: British manufacturing today in pictures In brutal close-up, images by the American photographer Bruce Gilden show faces battered by a lifetime of heavy industrial work and the unlined smooth face of Conor, one of the youngest workers at the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery in London, with an expression that suggests he's looking into an uncertain future. Gilden, best known for his street photography, joins eight other Magnum photographers in Open For Business , an exhibition, opening at the Science Museum and then touring, which captures the new face of British industry. The images include a sausage maker proudly showing off his new range for the Chinese market, a rigger positioning Shaun the Sheep beside his tiny tree at the Aardman studios, and a lone scenery painter dwarfed by the ...

Sale of the century: the privatisation scam 22.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Privatisation promised to turn the UK into an island of small shareholders. It failed: the faceless state bureaucrats have been replaced by faceless (better-paid) private bureaucrats and big foreign corporations. How did we get to this point? Train fares are going up. We learned that last week, although "learn" is putting it strongly. We knew they would. It's not as if they would go down: train fares go up, like electricity bills, gas bills, water bills, rent and chief executives' salaries. To the loyalists of the Thatcher-Blair-Cameron succession, higher train fares are a positive, because they mean lower subsidies: another incremental step in a 35-year programme to shift the burden of paying for infrastructure from the well-off to the strugglers. To most of us, it's another sign of the folly of selling off the railways. But amid the dismal annual round of fare rises, it's easy to miss another, stranger, more gradual sign of the failure of the vast social and economic experiment conducted on the ...
