"The London celebration of the anniversary of the Paris Commune on
the night of March 18, 1889, consisted of a small crowd of boozy, beery, pot-valiant, squalid, frowsy, sodden Whitechapel outcasts who shrieked and fought in a small hall in their district under the eye of a single policeman … All of the women had soiled red flags and handkerchiefs, which they waved in the air as they shrieked ‘Blood!’ in chorus. Then they would sink back into drunken indifference till the word ‘blood’ was mentioned again."
