Since the privatisation of United Kingdom’s Coal mines— Coal Miners have been deceived into believing that they have been given a good deal in regards to their contributed Pension Schemes. In the beginning (1995/96) 75% 25% in favour of the miners seemed a reasonable solution seeing that the government was Scheme’s guarantor but it never saw light of day and was replaced by a 50%/50% scenario which left a bitter taste in the mouths of coalworkers.
