Mary Maloney. Arguably the first political troll.

Came across this fascinating picture the other day.  The guy in the foreground is some dude called Winston Churchill.  You may have heard of him. He should win the Oscar IMO.

In this picture he’s about to deliver an electoral speech in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1908.

You’ll notice there’s a woman standing on a horse and carriage.  She is carrying a large bell.  The instant Winston would start talking, she would loudly ring the bell.  And there was nothing Winston could do.

Her name was Mary Maloney.  She was an Irish suffragette.  She knew what she was doing.
