Justice for David Wilkie, True Working Class Hero

Labour have launched a bizarre “Justice for the Coalfields” campaign this week to seek an apology from the Tories for the miners’ strike. What about  “Justice for David Wilkie”?

Two Welsh NUM activists were jailed for life in 1985 for the murder of taxi driver David Wilkie during the miners’ strike. He was killed when the two striking miners threw a concrete block off a bridge as Wilkie bravely drove a working miner to a pit in South Wales in November 1984. Passing sentence, the judge Mr Justice Michael Mann said the strikers had “engendered a climate of violence”.

Labour’s Neil Kinnock called it an “atrocity”, the NUM funds and is affiliated to the Labour Party. Michael Dugher would be better off demanding an apology from those Labour supporters who created the climate of violence that lead to the death of David Wilkie, a real working class hero…

UPDATE: Labour’s campaign has come to a grinding halt.

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
