Ex-miners to throw ‘party’ for Thatcher

The Danderhall/Newton National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) Retired Members Branch is planning to throw a party ‘celebrating’ the death of former Prime Minister Maragaret Thatcher.

The party at Danderhall Miners Club is to begin at 1pm on Wednesday, April 17.

The Advertiser has asked its facebook friends whether they think the celebration is in bad taste.
