In the early C20, Liverpool was at the forefront of many radical events such as the 1911 Transport Strike and the only major Police Strike ever to occur in Britain, both of which saw tanks in the streets of  Liverpool. As the century progressed, radicals like Bessie Braddock, Jack Jones and Margaret Simey dominated the headlines, both national and local, as did grass-roots movements led by local people themselves.
