Andrew Burgin very generously gave me the King Mob ‘Luddites 69’ poster designed by the Wise Brothers and featuring Andy Capp. As a model for workers dealing with the bosses this proclamation from Genral Ned Ludd is unbeatable:
‘I ham going to informe you that theres six thousand men cuming to you soon and then we will goe and blow up all afour us. Labring people cant stand it no longer. Dam all such rogues as England governes but never mind NED LUDD but when genral Nody and his harmies cums we will soon bring about the great revelootion when all these greate mens hedds goes off
Yours Genral Ludd Yorksheer
Suck on that Vince Cable!
200th anniversary of Luddite uprisings this year. The hammers used by the luddites were called Enochs and the biggest Great Enoch. When the approached a target the cy would go up ‘LET GREAT ENOCH TAKE THE VAN’ (go in front). Bi-centenary details here: Luddite Bicentenary
