Miner's Strike Stories

Editorial Illustration, 2018

A commission by Graphic Designer Craig Oldham to create a comic strip based on one of the Miner's stories for the Orgreave - Truth and Justice Campaign.

After the strike we were warned we could potentially be sacked for calling someone a scab so we invented the acronym Sausage Chips And Beans. When they cottoned on they told us this was outlawed too. One night in Barnsley town centre a scab had the audacity to walk into a pub. Not wanting to get in bother myself I told my mate Sam who wasn't a miner to give him some stick. Sam however is infamous for getting stuff mixed up. He jumped up in the pub and shouted Egg Bacon and fucking Fried Bread you bastard to the amusement

of everyone (but the scab)!
