COAL IS A DIRTY BUSINESS – An event I will sadly have to miss:


Hey feral lefties, don’t blame coal dust for your poor personal hygiene!

To paraphrase the words of Col Jessop from “A Few Good Men”, “You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth! We live in a world that runs on electricity, and that has to be provided by men who dig coal… And their existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, makes the world go round. They have neither the time nor the inclination to explain themselves to people who rise and sleep and organise and rally and protest thanks to electricity they provide, and then questions the manner in which they provide it. They’d rather you just say ‘thank you’ and go on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up some blades, and stand as a wind turbine. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to!”
