Embedded text or transcriptFunny to think they were on out side in The War....
Who, dear?
The Russkies....with old Joe Stalin....
Yes, he was a nice chap, I liked him - like an uncle, he was. I liked his moustache and his pipe.
Roosevelt was nice, too. There was the three of them - Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin - all good blokes, with old Hitler, Goering and Musso and all that mob on the other side....
You somehow knew where you were then. I don't even know who the people are these days....
I expect it's all done by committees, dear
Yes, and Meetings. I expect they have loads and loads of meetings and thus Arrive at Decisions. Commuters, too. They all use Commuters these days. It's got very impersonal
Churchill with cigar........old Stalin with his moustache....you know where you stood....
Do you think they'll invade?
Oh no - won't need to. It'll all be done by Missiles - Long Range. Then they'll instil Commuters to take charge of us
