Embedded text or transcriptOVERCROWDED SWIMMING POOLS. The first heat wave heralds the usual drought and the customary congestion of our London swimming pools. "What's the water like Bill?" "Dunno. I've only been in an hour."
CREATION OF A CHAMBERLAIN LEGEND Already the new Premier is being groomed for stardom as something typically John Bullish and loveable. The fisherman angle is said to be the most promising. Four photographers have already committed suicide.
UP WITH THE DEAROLEFLAG, LADS The main cause of the failure of the Coronation decorations, says a famous art critic, is that the Union Jack is so inartistic. Something will be done about this right away, no doubt.
OUR NATIONAL GREATNESS DEPT. ("the new grass-drying process means security and a new lease of life for England." - NEWSPAPER) When Spartan dried grass is the Englishman's fare To Foreign invaders he'll bellow "Beware! Our soldiers just love it and sailors don't care." Oh the dried grass of England, and England's dried grass.
BURGIN'S SUPER-BEACONS Probably it is too much to expect that the new Minister of Transport will not try to improve on Belisha, with all the Coronation doodahs lying around.
Gad, sir, Lord Goof is right. The Spanish women and children must be taught not to drop bombs on battleships. COL BLIMP
