- Thatcher Dead!
….there was never going to be a future for the coalmining industry.
"Coal has been the main beneficiary, with a 29% share in 2008, up from 24% a decade ago. Worldwide coal consumption in 2008 was 3.1% higher than in the previous year."
"The UK consumed 58.2 million tonnes of coal in 2008, including 47.8 million tonnes in power stations.
Coal imports to the UK were 43.9 million tonnes, a slight increase (+1.2%) on the previous year's amount.
Almost a third of the UK's electricity was produced from coal"Posted 10 years ago

And when the time finally comes, I wouldn't advocate dancing on her grave either. A withered, bejewelled hand might just burst out of the ground and grab you by the leg.
Let's see you lefties try to blame THAT one on Thatch.
It never ceases to amaze me how some people can bang on about how Thatcher saved the nation, changed the country, put the 'Great' back in Britain, etc etc, and then……….wait for it ………….and then…. deny that she is actually responsible for anything !!!

Good old coal industry!
Coal industry, what coal industry ?
Do you mean the coal industries in Russia, Poland, and Australia ?
Because 70% of coal used in Britain today, is now imported – mainly from those 3 countries.
Yes that's 70 percent…… despite the fact that Britain has known coal reserves to provide us with 100 percent of all our needs, for several hundred years.
I wonder who's bright idea that was ?Posted 10 years ago
"Britain has known coal reserves to provide us with 100 percent of all our needs, for several hundred years."
Those Swedes are so tolerant.
MisterCrud – what has Britain importing coal from Russia, Poland, and Australia, despite having known coal reserves which could provide 100 percent of our needs for several hundred years, got do with the Swedes been "tolerant" ?
Are you suggesting that if the Swedes were less tolerant, we would be using our own coal and not importing
WTF are you talking about ?Posted 10 years ago
Click on the link ernie….we have rendered their lakes lifeless with our addiction to coal.Posted 10 years ago
Nobody has the answer to green power sources, but surely coal cannot continue to be burnt forever?
We've got away from Thatch a bit here.
Right, I'm going to have my tea…..
