Illegality Thrives In Clockwork Underworld

August 7, 1906 ·

llegality thrives in what has been named the “Clockwork Underworld” – one of the No-Go zones in London’s East End, according to a special investigation by the London Gazette.

In one area, an unlicensed establishment called The Den dedicates itself to providing services deemed  ‘alternative and different’. The venue, owned by a known local criminal – Christopher Hargreaves, and one Ella Mayhem, serves up illicit cocktails with Absinthe, while people are entertained by bands and burlesque performers.

Some establishments are known to  provide Clockwork-Only services to automata freed from its basic programming. The First Oasis, set up by a group called the Machine Liberation Front  wants an end to what it calls “Clockwork slavery”. Posters claiming that “Clocks Are People” and “Salvation Is Coming” hang on the walls, as a reminder that conflic may not be far away.

While not much is known about the number of Clockworks now operating in the country, the fact that many are “jailbroken” – free from all restrictions, will come as a rallying call to those asking for a public inquiry into Clockwork ownership.

This latest revelation is a result of the dusk till dawn curfew imposed by the government, and the inability of the police to enforce law and order.
