. . . the inquiry must have the power to compel all relevant organisations and people to turn over what information and evidence they have.

All relevant organisations. That means spooks and military. Plod couldn't have organised this on his own. Government want to blame it all on plod. That's why the silence.

The Home Office reiterated that Ms Rudd intended to make a decision by the end of October . . .

That doesn't give her long, do it or get off the pot.

“We thought we were in a relationship with the Home Office and there would be some scope for negotiation and our views would be taken notice of. But we increasingly feel we will be told what we’re getting – told ‘this is what’s happening and you can like it or lump it. You can co-operate or not, as you choose fit.’”

The Home Office is getting snobby. It's revolution time. Sharpen the pitchforks.

We remember it but many whom are reading about it do not know how peacefully demonstrating and legally picketing miners acting within there right's were set upon by the police in the most violent manner.
There has never been a study showing how many of those miners hit over there head's and bloody from the police attack's suffered head trauma related illness or later death's related to such.

Thatcher was as evil a person as has ever ran our country and sadly there are many misguided and wrong minded people today whom still claim she was a hero as well as falsely attributing her with the recovery of the economy which actually began with a turn around in the asian stock market's and had nothing to do with her but it has to be said that it was not her alone and that indeed the south Yorkshire police, the Met whom have a history of violence and abuse of people and whom shipped many officers there and of course the rumored soldier's whom some claim (including a retired police officer I knew whom himself was shipped there from another force at the time) were dressed in police uniform (and kept to themselves) and whom were supposedly the worse and most violent of the offenders in that crime also have to share there part in that matter and of course should be prosecuted if we ever had a legal and above board government whom were not so utterly corrupt as we usually have.

Before someone say's about the Taxi driver and the concrete block or the angry miner's enraged at former colleague's becoming scab's let me point out that those incident's were not typical of the miners though indeed they did get more desperate and angry over what was being done to them BUT the police human right's abuse (which has never been prosecuted - including breaches of our own law's on assault, wrongful arrest and imprisonment etc) were far more frequent, minders died of heart attack's on the line as well as some from head injury's but the press did not even give those lad's the time of day so propaganda is as propaganda does and of course the victor write's the history, the campaign for Orgreave show's that the miners and there family's however did not give up and so the victor's in this case may well still be relegated to there rightful place as despicable devious power abusing scum by the more enlightened historian's of the future.

You and I know this is a pivotal point in history.

. . . the rumored soldier's whom some claim (including a retired police officer I knew . . .

I'm sure this is the reason the government are avoiding discussion. I stand by the title. The government are our servants. They will serve us or be subjected to a humiliating beating.

Before the Iraq invasion the Iraqi army were told, 'Split into groups of three. No electronic communications. No engagement to last more than twenty minutes. The best weaponry to be buried until victory is certain.' Should the Home Office declare no inquiry I suggest Orgreave campaigners follow these guidelines.

Yes -let's have a FULL enquiry. What did the Cabinet Office tell West Yorks Police to do. What did the Security Service advise West Yorks Special Branch about Miners intentions? What do the COBRA minutes say?
If people really want the truth - let's have it. All of it.

The suspense is driving me nuts.

There is a Home Office debate in Parliament starting at 2pm, Monday 31st October and the 2nd question on the order paper is “When will the Home Secretary make an announcement about about an Orgreave Inquiry” to raised by Labour MP for Chester Christian Matheson. Labour MPS are being primed to respond to this with supplementary questions but in order for a Labour Mp to be chosen a Tory has to be willing to ask a question as well.

All of this has been frustrating both the campaign, supporters and the journalists following this important story with events beyond and out of our control but importantly we have held on and continued to gather media interest. Supporters who are able to get to NUM HQ Barnsley this press conference is open to all supporters as well as the media.

On Monday 31 October the OTJC contact in London is Kate. Contact [email protected] for more information and there will be OTJC people available for interview in response to any announcement by Amber Rudd. They will be in Committee Room 8 in Westminster from 10.00 until 16.00.

On Tuesday 1 November at 10.00am the OTJC, in association with the National Union of Mineworkers, will hold a news conference to respond in more detail to the announcement by Amber Rudd. Please note this news conference will take place even if there is no announcement by Amber Rudd.
