The Scum
‘I’d rather be a cow-pat than a cop’
In a survey of Special Branch files related to Wapping, some of the extent of police surveillance, as well as the defiant humour of the demonstrators, is evidenced:
‘Surveillance of the demonstrations and pickets was painstaking, including full lists of ‘banners taking part’ and even a list of ‘chants heard during the evening marches’. These included, ‘TUC get off your knees, call a general strike’, ‘I’d rather be a picket than a scab’, and perhaps more unusually, ‘I’d rather be a cow-pat than a cop’.’http://specialbranchfiles.uk/wapping-strike-story/,
