Embedded text or transcriptThe Tory party managers having discovered that the smallness of the vote was to their advantage, we may expect a rousing Apathy campaign at the next elections. The Nation Calls : AW. Nuts. Penny Comic . Don't bother to vote. Just prospecting for oil, boys..... Perfect Government at last? - There are 2 abstentionist M.P.'s elected upon the understanding that they will not attend Parliament. If they gain enough followers, they should be called upon to form a Government. Water Situation - steady progress in the south - The Inland Water Survey, appointed last February to advise the Ministry of Health on supplies, is still at work. Measures to combat last summer's drought are being discussed. Crushing of Freetrade : Eggs laid at the Poultry Show will be destroyed "to safeguard the interests of the exhibitor." (Crystal Palace Order) It won't be long now : Mussolini's collection of statues of himself are to be melted down to make shells for the war. Some feel that Abyssinia might give up sooner if they were fired whole. Col. Blimp, Cabinet-Maker : Gad, sir, the Archbishop is right. If the Prime Minister doesn't hurry up and send for Winston Churchill, C.B. Cochran will.
