"However the waters are likely to be very murky when look at all the politics of the time"
Aren't they always when it comes to workers protesting at the situation they find themselves in due to political incompetence indifference and corporate greed.
Many of the workers who marched from Jarrow to protest at not being able to feed their families were among those who fought in the trenches in 'The War to End All Wars'
The fact that they were treated with contempt the way they were by the Reform Club parasites deserves a mention - it certainly seems to have served to get the maggots scuttling out of the apple here.
