A delightful trend begun by Ned Lud in Leicestershire at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. When the introduction of a stocking frame threatened to take his job from him old Lud smashed it to bits and exhorted his pals to do the same.
Luddism flourished in Blighty from 1811-16.
Though similar in result to certain occasions when the Chaps may have smashed machinery in their own brief working tenures this is not thought to be Luddism per se.
More a case of lunching rather too well.
