At last our Nazi correspondent has been able to get past the censorship the true facts of Chamberlain's recent Purge. It seems that Chamberlain himself personally shot Swinton whom he sus-pected of plans to seize Downing Street
Power is now centered in Kingsley Wood, a sinister figure who is said to aim at adding Central Europe to the British Empire. Terror reigns and the Secret Police have put Opposition leaders under protective arrest. Some doubt exists as to whether Winston Churchill is to be interned in the Tower or entertained at the Ritz.
