Much as I hate to say it, I do not agree that this is a topic relevant to this site. I hate Scargiill as much as many of you hate Thatcher, and I come from a mining family. The site is about a celebration/remembrance of all things AWP. Look at what the initial ethos of the series was? That lads who couldn't get jobs because of certain Thatcherite policies went abroad to better their lives. Like it or not the series was borne beacuse of certain aspects related to her. Bottom Line: If we hadn't had her, we wouln't have had AWP. I already have my T shirt, Rot in H**l Scargill! Enough said on this matter. To me at least.

The Line was straight out of Oz's speech about her, series 2 episode 1.
Also, i think its very relevant to this site, if it wasn't for Maggie then Pet would of been a whole lot different.
They wouldn't of been mass unemployment in the early 80s.
Why a lot of builders at the time had to go abroad for work.
So to me, it deserves its place on the forum...

Has to be said that is some of the most twisted logic I've ever heard. Thank Margaret Thatcher for AWP?

I do see everyones point Geoffrey, and as long as this now stays with how Maggie was connected to Auf Pet, then it will be ok.

To all. Didn't mean offence, I try to stay away from Politics as I've seen how many problems they cause. Was just saying that, and I don;'t know if the writers found it like that, that the idea for AWP was spawned through certain things. That's why I like Geoffrey Grainger so much by the way. He was a slimy devil, and reminds me of a lot of them nowadays. best to all.

I posted about how Maggie was responsible for Auf Pet, and got loads of abuse from a person on Facebook page. Never again! Had to ban him, language was disgusting!
