Aneurin Bevan Quote

The Govenment has tried everything to solve the problem of the coal industry - semi-starvation, imprisonment, extortion, threats, the supplication of the miner's leaders, and what is the almost omnipotence of Churchill's oratory. All have failed. There is one thing they have not tried. They haven't tried getting rid of the coal owners. For the one truth the Government has not yet learned is .... you can get coal without the coal owners, but you can't get coal without miners. - Aneurin Bevan
