Embedded text or transcriptA.R.P. REHEARSAL AT WHITEHALL
Slight difference of opinion has arisen between Lord Privy Seal and Minister of Health as to whether Inskip should be deemded an overpopulated area and evacuated to the far North, or an essential group, and forced to stay behind in a steel dog-kennel.
BOMB MYSTERY - HOME OFFICE ALERT
Compulsory National Register for detectives has been opened. M. Poirot, Lord Peter Wimsey, Father Brown, Ellery Queen and Sexton Blake have already been called up.
DEAR-OLE-FLAG STUFF
(Home Office asks all borough ARP committee chairmen to attend a big do on Jan 24th, at which each one will be presented with a pretty pennon, presumably to wave during raids - NEWS.)
Stop the raid! Stop the raid! I can't find me pennon!
EVACUATION DISCOVERY
While digging his own private Underground, Low unearthed a tomb containing a long-buried and almost forgotten dynasty called the labour Party. The remains deeply resented being disturbed and insisted on being filled in again before Cripps arrived. Granted.
LIFE OF MUSSOLINI (continued)
I refused to do military service
for awhile I was a tramp
One day I saw red (continued)
Gad, sir, Lord Chucklehead is right. Why can't the unemployed go and break their hearts in private like decent sturdy Englishmen!
