Scottish miner's book on pit closure fight republished on line
Polmaise: The Fight For A Pit, by John McCormack has been republished on line here. John was the National Union of Mineworkers pit delegate at Polmaise, whose miners were in the forefront of the battle against pit closures in Scotland from 1983, and throughout the national strike of 1984-85. At that time I worked in Scotland as a journalist, and "ghost wrote" the book, which was first published in 1989.
