In Pound and Pint James and Anne are returning home from the West Indies but trouble is growing on board The Star of Bethlehem. Crewman Jessop is sowing the seeds of trouble. Things get worse when the provisions are halved after the meat goes bad. Jessop is determined to bring the men out on strike when they get back to Liverpool.
The strike causes major problems for James and Callon line and leaves James having to do so quick thinking. Coming to terms with the strikers could mean that he get one over on Fogarty. Daniel Fogarty decides to take matters into his own hands and organises a strike breaking crew which cost him a ship and smashed up dock office.
Anne is definitely not happy about the way James has been dealing with the situation. She thinks he is solely concerned with money (which he is) and doesn’t care about his crew. She wants to be loyal to James but at the same time is having a real crisis of conscience about his methods. Even going so far as to provide food to the family of the strikers. Anne’s dissatisfaction with James will have some major repercussions over the next few episodes.
“Anne, you leave this house above my express wishes and you needn’t bother to come back.”
