    Quid a day. I watched a documentary at the time where they were all p1ssed up after a day picketing Rod. Beer must have been cheap.

    Did Arthur claim his quid a day on top of still getting his wages in full?

    Bottom line is you ferked it up for other workers,who had to deal with a triumphant Maggie,after you blindly followed one mans vanity crusade,it would have never happened under a proper trade union leader like Joe Gormley

    I just have done,that's what I meant by a triumphant Maggie,after beating you lot,she had everyone else in her sights,and nobody to stop her,it required a bit of brains and cunning to defeat her,your leader had neither.

    He was on a par with David Weir,when it comes to being successful

    Joe Gormley took on the Tories and won,he was a shrewd clever and cunning operator.

    Arthur Scargill was non of the above,and you lost.

    Working nearby, we'd call in the Pump for lunch, or occasionally the Bier Keller for the stripper (seems strange, by modern standards, doesn't it?). The lunchtime ones usually had plenty of stretch marks and looked like they were trying to decide what to cook for their husbands tea, rather than being alluring and seductive...

    Haha that’s true FKB. I remember the BK purely as a place that we just got a bit bladdered, there wasn’t any strippers back in the day, but a few years later I had the dubious pleasure of working on equipment there a few times when the afternoon strippers were on. Not easy to focus with all that going on although not as distracting as in the Gaitey pub in Leeds where the topless waitress used to rest their thruppennies on a tray while chatting to me while the stripper plied her trade. Touch times to be an engineer

    I was telling my lad about normal business life in the 80's only the other day!...Three or four pints, and strippers, then back to the office for a cup of tea and carry on with the days work. How things change...

    Great days. We were audited by a Government Office and they asked to see some of Sheffields culture being London lads. We took them to the Hofbrau for lunch. We got a very good audit report and for the next few years also as they argued down South whose turn it was to come up and do the Sheffield audit.

    The obit in today’s Daily Telegraph states - another big draw at the Mojo was Jimi Hendrix. When he played there the police received a tip-off that he was carrying drugs, and- in those days lacking a specialised drug squad - they sent the fire brigade to investigate. Finding nothing suspicious, they left with an apology to the guitarist. Stringfellow recalled: ‘Hendrix looked up from what appeared to be a six inch joint and said: ‘Hey, cool man’’

    Was the Gaitey pub on Roundhay road Gray?
    When I was working for the AA we had to go to a GP in Leeds on Roundhay road for a medical every 3 years, I remember us always calling into a pub just down from the doctors that had strippers and topless bar staff, but can't remember the name.
