Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Roger Windsor was chief executive of the NUM (National Union of Mineworkers) between 1983 and 1989, including during the 1984 Miner's Strike. He later moved to France.Windsor was accused of damaging the image of the union by visiting Libya during the strike and meeting Colonel Gaddafi, at the time an enemy of the United Kingdom. Windsor was despatched to Libya by Arthur Scargill & Peter Heathfield (NUM General Secretary) in order make a direct appeal for funds from President Gaddafi. The Sunday Times' report on his visit was credited by some with substantially undermining public and parliamentary support for the miners. Both Scargill & Heathfield maintained contact with the Libyans subsequent to Roger Windsor's visit even after the Miners' Strike has ended in 1985. One significant such meeting took place in France in 1985 between Heathfield and Alain Simon (International Miners Organisation Secretary) with high level representatives from Libya.
