One of Margaret Thatcher's biggest domestic conflicts came with powerful union boss Arthur Scargill. He clashed bitterly with her during the 1984/85 miners' strike.

Arthur Scargill was sent a text message by Ken Capstick, the Treasurer of the Socialist Labour Party which read: "Thatcher Dead". As pictured below, back came this equally short reply from Scargill: "SCARGILL ALIVE !"
