Thread Name: The Jarrow March
Subject: RE: Folklore: I have to ask the Brits-The Jarrow March
For your information, Mr MGbloodyM, the Jarrow march is an iconic episode in British labour history. One little mentioned detail of that episode is that, when the march went past the Reform Club in London - yes, that Reform Club where all the well bred upper class toffs hung out - some of the members went outisde and pelted the marchers with stale bread rolls!
If that doesn't put me in mind of Messrs Cameron, Osborne and Co, I don't know what will.
