6: Arthur Scargill
Arthur Scargill , leader of the Yorkshire miners, is one of the toughest and most intractable union bosses the new government has to face. With a big pay claim coming up, and government legislation planned to combat flying pickets, ARTHUR SCARGILL is a power to be reckoned with.

Is he really a wrecker dedicated to the overthrow of capitalism, or just a good trade unionist out to get the best deal for his members?
