It Is good that you see fit to give the threat to the coal industry extensive coverage. But was it really necessary to refer to Arthur Scargill as being "the pounds 60,000-a-year-plus president of the mineworkers' union"? After all, you don't mention the salaries of Richard Budge (of RJB Mining) and John Battle (Minister of Coal), and I would hazard an informed guess that their remuneration is greater.
