Thirty Years Down the Mines

Readers of Friday's Thanet Gazette, may have been surprised by one of the items on the letters page, ostensibly from the older sister of the Labour Leader of our Council, challenging the story the family were raised in abject, cloth-cap-wearing Dickensian poverty. This denied the popular Party myth, that the young Clive was apprenticed to a pit pony, at the tender age of eight but instead, enjoyed an unremarkable, happy and comfortable family life.

While I don't agree with using the letters page of the local paper as a platform to air family differences, I thought a little classic humour from the Monty Python team might offer a little comment to the make us smile!
