Q. Describe in your own words the incident about the stout old lady of Petrograd. What is Gardiner conveying through this example? (5marks) (2019)
-> In Petrograd, a stout old lady was walking with her basket down the middle of a street creating great confusion to the traffic and with no small peril to herself. She pointed that the pavement was the place for foot passengers. She had the notion that she could walk where she liked because she had the liberty to do so. She is called “liberty drunk” by the author.
