The new 2014 edition of Alf Cobb: Mugsborough Rebel by Mike Matthews is especially welcome, as this year is the centenary of the death of Robert Tressell, author of the famous book The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. Tressell's semi-factual novel, set in the run-down seaside resort of Hastings in the early 1900s, had a major influence on many leaders of the British Labour movement throughout much of the 20th century.

Cobb's passionate speeches, often recorded in word-for-word detail in the local newspapers, are quoted extensively by Mike. Alf Cobb: Mugsborough Rebel paints a vivid portrait of a fascinating and influential man at
