Know Thy Enemy 1- a postscript on Cowley

April 2, 2017

Here we delve into the gutter to look at some of the sensationalist tabloid press coverage of the Cowley 13.

Amongst a collection of papers and pamphlets belonging to Lynn Gregory and Godfrey Webster, loaned to us by Lynn, we found the following press clippings relating to the Cowley 13.

It is interesting to see the parallels with the current press monstering of Jeremy Corbyn- the same nasty, grubby and personal attacks are here, with the addition of a dose of gratuitous sexism in their treatment of Steph. Unpleasant stuff.
