Born in Leeds. A lifelong member of the Yorkshire mining community, Scargill became President of the National Union of Mineworkers, in 1982, and a member of the General Council of the Trades Union Congress. He is remembered for his strong defence of British coal mines in an era of decline and closure. This brought him into conflict with Margaret Thatcher's government, and led to the Miners' Strike of 1984–1985.
