HOLLYWOOD came under fire in Chesterfield last week as anti-Thatcherite protesters gathered outside a screening of The Iron Lady.

Organised by veteran members of TUC’s Women’s Action Group, the demonstration outside Cineworld on Derby Road, showed that feelings towards Thatcher – played in the film by Meryl Streep – are as bitter as they were during the miners’ strike of 1984 and 85.
