John Bedford Leno (1826-94) was a Chartist, Radical, Poet and printer who acted as a bridge between Chartism and early Labour movements, as well as between the working and ruling classes. He campaigned to give the vote to all common men and women, driven by a strong desire for justice and freedom for all mankind.

He was a leading figure in the Reform League, which campaigned for the Reform Act 1867. He was called the Burns of Labour and the poet of the poor for his political songs and poems, which were sold widely in penny publications, and recited and sung by workers in Britain, Europe and even America. He was an entertaining and persuasive orator and his speeches were in great demand around London. He owned, edited and contributed to Radical and Liberal newspapers and journals, and printed and distributed bills advertising London Reform meetings and demonstrations.
