The EB come from the first letters of Epithet Bawled. Not entirely happy about the PL for copper (policeman?), but it is a near &lit referring to "Plebgate".

I should add that the clue actually has a question mark at the end, to indicate the unresolved nature of the allegation. "Copper" here is meant to indicate P (penny).
