Embedded text or transcriptUP THE BLACK MOUSTACHES! The Fascist Party already plans to get around the uniform ban. Mosley has ordered all ranks to grow large black moustaches.
SEALED LIPS CRISIS The disastrous consequences of last week's experimental unsealing of Old Sealed Lips have settled the matter. Strong measures are to be taken.
PHYSICAL JERKS FOR THE UNDERFED (\UNEW GOVT. POLICY\u.) The subjects are to be given knife-and fork drill and later, perhaps, when Income Tax is reduced to 2d in the #, a square meal may be stuck on the fork.
PLOT DEPARTMENT Since it is now public property that foreign nations finance political propaganda in Britain, Low wishes to remind Moscow Berlin and Rome that he has not yet received last quarter's blood-money for the Low Party. Settlement will oblige.
Gad sir, Lord Stiff is right. One must admire these dictators for the way they defend their honour by welshing on their treaties. WELL-HIT-SIR BY COL. BLIMP
