I'm with Novice. Fuck Thatch, the old hag. I grew up in a town that relied heavily on the mining industry (my grandad and most of his family worked around/down the mines) and the loss of the pits hit us hard, with additional blows being added when the other main employers left as well. A lot of us who remember those days nearly choked with sarastic laughter when the local council thought that it was a wonderful idea to stick statues celebrating our mining history all over the town.
