No coal
Strikes etc.
We remember only too well Mr. Shinwell's optimistic view on coal and the ultimate result - but he didn't give a tinker's cuss about that

Restriction Tobacco Tax
Beer ax
Coal Shortage

Now Mr. Attlee naively hopes we find happiness and adventure in life
And Sir Stafford Cripps too is taking life in lighter vein and wonders how long a donkey (you) will walk after a carrot permanently out of reach
You and me!
These Right Hon. gentlemen may regard us as donkeys and beasts of burden to be amused by their 'tell them anything' tactics but they should remember that on occasions the Donkey can also kick!
