Communists and Socialists that are against fossil fuels supported coal mines
The strongest criticism coming from Communists and Socialists against Margaret Thatcher is related to the closure of coal mines. Incidentally, Communists and Socialists keep pestering everybody talking against fossil fuels and dreaming about more taxes to cut the use of fossil fuels. Now, coal is a fossil fuel. Unfortunately, mentally retarded individuals cannot see the link between coal mines and fossil fuel consumption.
Neil Kinnock, Ken Livingstone, Jenny Jones and many others keep talking about the environment and about saving the planet but then they turn around and attack Margaret Thatcher because she reduced coal production. The left gets itself into all kinds of contradictions. I remember a politician that used to say that one side of the road should go upwards and the other side of the road should go downwards so that people could save fuel. I don’t remember the name of the politician but the name could have been Neil Kinnock, Ken Livingstone or Jenny Jones.
