Digging For The Truth
Even Amber Rudd does not dispute the NUM's version of events at Orgreave.
Based on the interview with Alan Billings on this morning's Today programme, even South Yorkshire Police no longer disputes that version of events.
Perhaps the most striking thing, so to speak, about Orgreave is what a cheap date the Conservative Right has become in its old age, flattered by even the slightest romantic attention.
Theresa May can put trade union reps on the boards of private companies, and she can pay Nissan to pay people in Sunderland.
But as long as there is no official inquiry into Orgreave, then the Right is in a state of positively unseemly delight.
