i always did my own washing, never once used dhoby wallahs , come to think of it i never had the money to pay them. i always put beer first..could always get a crate from the naffi man as one of them was from around here.. and on the striker anyone could get a crate when ever you wanted it.. that was a eye opener for me, first ship and all that..

Must have been awkward for you being an ex miner, I mean Striker meant something else to you didn't it?

now then i only ever had one day off , the miners in leicstershire worked, the kent miners came up here on a friday when they stopped me in my car ranting at me, i asked them why they did not come and help us out when i had to change pits, as the one i worked at closed down,,they did not know what to say,i said ok i will not go down the pit today and thats what i did,, never sore a kent miner after that..i did stay in the n,u,m sargill went about it the wrong way, i did vote for the strike but it went the other way so i had to go along with that,,same thing now with brexit, out means out..i thought i was on a winner this time, now i wonder..
