Personally I think we will never know for a fact the real state of anything in this and any other SOE saga's ...

Until a power station stops operating due to lack of coal that is.

A warning or will the minister shout "fake news"? 

Don't hold your breath. If indeed true, buckle up and enjoy the ride.

No-one can do anything about it this late as it take years to open a new mine / fix an existing one (if still viable) coupled with lots of strikes and that in-between.
