Amber Rudd's justification for a continuing government conspiracy of cover up and evasion surrounding the outrageous events at Orgreave , crumbles with each new snippet of information emerging from the secret Home Office files. The evidence of police officers who were there at the time, including those wearing civilian clothes, involved in the violence coupled with the accounts from striking miners, clearly establish government involvement both before and after the event, colluding with police to inflict by whatever means necessary, physical assault upon the striking miners and to undermine in the public perception,and the issues involved in the dispute.
