HAVING just wept as I watched BBC1's 'Everyman' programme on the decimation of the Grimethorpe mining community, my mind went back to John Major's Commons announcement of the separation of Charles and Diana.

In a studio discussion that afternoon, the Tory backbencher Sir Anthony Grant stated that this was the saddest announcement that he had heard during 28 years in Parliament.

Where was he when Michael Heseltine, President of the Board of Trade, announced the separation of 30,000 miners from their jobs?
