Piers BS: Was Thatcher right? (125* d) RE: BS: Was Thatcher right? 05 Aug 05


Eric, she just transferred miners deaths elsewhere. South Africa now is the biggest exporter of coal to the UK:

"Safety standards and technology lag far behind those in Australia, the United States, Britain and Canada. As evidence, the union points to statistics that show South African mines are many times more dangerous than those in other countries. For example, the fatality rate in South Africa's coal mines in 1992 was 0.64 per 1000 workers compared to 0.43 in NSW, 0.36 in the US, and 0.08 in the UK."
