Get your hands off our money

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY KEITH STAN­LEY, 68, for­mer Notts Na­tional Union of Min­ers gen­eral sec­re­tary

THE NUM was against this deal from the start. Ev­ery­one kept telling us how good it was, that we’d get 33 per cent more. Well, the Govern­ment got 100 per cent be­cause they never put a penny in.

These sur­pluses came from min­ers’ con­tri­bu­tions and they’re the ones who should ben­e­fit.

I’d have a bet­ter pen­sion now if the Govern­ment kept its hands off it.
