NotesNotes : Beaverbrook was embarrased by Low's attacks on Lord Rothermere, who had helped him finance his purchase of the Evening Standard. But Rothermere's support for Fascism was too much for Low who softened his attack only my making the nanny unrecognisable as Rothermere and referring to the 'Daily [Black] Shirt', rather than explicitly to the Daily Mail. [p.48, David Low, Colin Seymour-Ure and Jim Schoff, Secker & Warburg, 1985]
