1) "People" wanted foreign holidays.
2) The miners went on strike because they wanted more foreign holidays, presumably more than anyone else. Or maybe more exotic, perhaps Majorca instead of Benidorm.
3) Because of the Majorca effect British industry collapsed. Presumably the working classes were enjoying too many foreign holidays.
4) Thatcher arrived, crushed the miners Majorca aspirations, restored balance to the force and saved us all.
Or you could go and read some Robert Reich and understand the increasing wealth distribution imbalances over the last 40 years and just start to think of how that manifests itself within our society.
