It seems reasonable to assume that, insofar as they thought about it at all, the working classes were, like the urban middle classes, hostile to the Corn Laws, but the articulation of this hostility was left almost entirely to middle-class expression. 18 But perhaps this is not so surprising: from the time of the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381, through to the Civil Wars and the Gordon Riots, the London mob had been known as the most radical and dangerous in the country. 19 Riots and protests there certainly were after 1815 and prior to 1846, but surprisingly none of these were directed against the Corn Laws, not even those of the early 1840s, when the League’s campaign was well under way, such as the Plug riots and the Rebecca riots.
