    You should mate. Its more a heritage event now, but still a bit political. Gives me a chance to meet up with me mates of 40 years ago.

    It is a great day and focuses on the modern heritage of Durham and County Durham where when mining was at its peak there were 153,000 miners.

    Trade union membership among Durham's pitmen was 105% (work that out!)

    There were some righty type goppers knocking around last year trying to get a reaction, but apart from that it was great.

    It's better when the sun is blazing which it has been these last few. A great day out.

    My initial post was just a bit humour at what @PhilSAFC had posted earlier in the thread. No need to take things so literally fella.

    I love the day out and the occasion, love living in Durham and I'm proud of it.
