Embedded text or transcriptOVERSEAS MUG'S HANDBOOK. Advice to Coronation vistors to the big city. Dont book seats in the state coaches cash in advance. Don't let anybody sell you the pigeons in Trafalgar Sq. Don't encourage gents who ask your help in giving away 2000000 (pounds). Dont by the crown jewels from some guy down an alley. ART OF NATION SOUND. "CORONATION NO LAUGHING MATTER" SAY ROYAL ACADEMY PORTRAITS. Super snootiness is note this year - This is held to be a rebuff to those who think the present is any time to enjoy ourselves.
BUDGET NON - LEAKAGE Budget secrets were well kept this year because the Chancellor trusted nobody but himself. The Profits Tax idea was, it is said, his own idea, not breathed to a soul. Steps are to be taken to ensure that Mr Chamberlain is not left alone in future.
NAZI SPORT In Germany all sportsmen who fail to pass exams in Nazi philosphy will be barred from 1st Class events regardless of their skill as players. REFEREE: "Gents, der Vinner! He aind't no boxer, but Oh Boy! has he a clear concept of der philosophic basis of German physical essentials in der New State!"
FLAGS-BEFORE-THE EYES Preparations are under way to cope with an increase in accidents due to new Coronation car fashions. Victims will be buried with military honours and the inventor made a duke for his patriotism.
HEARTBURN FROM BLIMP Gad, sir, Lord Stynkah is right. Nobody minds paying for armaments. Trouble is, when we have the damn things we dont use 'em.
