Seamus Heaney

Gerry Adams

Arthur Scargill's leadership of the miners' strike has been a disgrace. The price to be paid for his folly will be immense.

Jimmy Reid

All the time our union was progressing very nicely. There were lectures to make us understand what trades unionism is and our real position in the labor movement.
