Ashfield District Council Leader Slams PM's Coalmine Climate Comments

Ashfield District Council Leader Slams PM's Coalmine Comments

Councillor Jason Zadrozney has called comments made by the Prime Minister, about the closure of coalmines in the 1980s, abhorrent.

He has now called on the North Nottinghamshire MPs to distance them selves from what Boris Johnson said whilst in Scotland yesterday,

Mr Johnson said Margret Thatcher gave the country an "early start" in the fight against climate change by closing coal mines.

Councillor Zadrozny said, “The comments made by the Prime Minister are an insult to every resident in Ashfield, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and the UK.  It was crass, insensitive and downright abhorrent. The Prime Minister has not only shown contempt for mining communities like ours – but he has snatched away any semblance of dignity for those shafted at the coalface, shafted with their pensions and now sneered at by a Prime Minister who is so out of touch with communities like ours.  The Tories mask has slipped and they don’t look like anyone in Nottinghamshire.”
