One possible origin of "Liverpool Judies have got us in tow" is that the professional ladies of that town would row out to assist ships into port when business was slow.
I see a version of Turner's Fighting Temerraire but instead of being towed by a steam tug, by a boat load of ladies in fishnet stockings,tight red dresses and leather mini skirts.
Row bullies row,
Keith.
