Embedded text or transcriptThe new footpath railings policy is expected to reduce the accident rate considerably, as soon as the kids convince themselves that it is not part of the fitness campaign. ROAD PROBLEM SOLVED
On behalf of Cruft's Dog Show I accept the B.B.C.'s apology for cracking a joke.
OUR ANSWER TO HITLER INSKIP TO GROW MOUSTACHE NATION'S CONFIDENCE RETURNING
"THINKING MACHINE" The Old School at Cambridge is said to regard the thing with suspicion as probably a crazy idealist
WHITEHALL SPY-INFESTED It has just leaked out that last week an up-to-the-minute spy got away with a secret set of deep-breathing exercises from the Fitness Ministry.
BLIMP Gad, sir, Lord Poof is right. You can't expect Hitler and Mussolini to spare time to fix up Non-Intervention when they are so busy with the war on.

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
NotesNotes: "At a reception at court in 1937 Ribbentrop committed the famous gaffe of greeting the King with the Nazi salute, a faux pas that has become the classic example of amateurish and unfitting diplomacy. Rejection by English society, which in his eyes held the ultimate decision on some imaginary rank, offended him deeply and perhaps confirmed him in his conviction of the irreconcilable nature of Anglo-German antagonism even more strongly than the failure of his policy, which varied between attempts to curry favour and arrogant demonstrations of strength".
