Embedded text or transcriptBATS IN THE BELFRY DEPARTMENT JEWISH REIGN OF TERROR - SPECIAL
SINISTER NEW DISCOVERY BY 'TOPICAL BUDGET'
At last it is clear that the Great Jewish World Plot, not satisfied with controlling Finance, Industry, the Press, the Football Pools, Bolshevism and Democracy, now contols also Fascism and Nazism. Thus, while with devilish cunning they enrich themselves by abolishing Capitalism, they consolidate their position by persecuting themselves. Something must be done.
"NAZIS AT WORK IN EIRE" - (says a newspaper)
Tick Tock Tick Tock
"Arrah, Mick, how you vos ? Heil Hit--- ach, I mean Hock der Liberty! No-yes?"
SPY STUFF
You can't deceive Low. Those fashionable designs on girls stockings are just another dodge of Operator 36 to convey the plans of the new secret spark-plug to the enemy.
LIFE IN THE MILITIA - (IF YOU BELIEVE THE PAPERS)
HITCH
Polish military conversations are suspended for the moment because our General Sabretooth has got lockjaw trying to pronounce the Polish place-names.
"PARLIAMENT TO TAKE HOLIDAY"
At least it affords an opportunity to those absentee Tory M.P.'s to pay their annual visit to the House to show their girl friends where they would sit if they did their duty. After all, they bought their seats.
Gad, sir, Mr. Churchill is right. Mr. Chamberlain should send a load of umbrellas to Tientsin at once to protect trouserless Englishmen. BLIMP
ADOLF THE A.R.P. GOAT
Bomb test completed. Company discharged from sick bay. Certain improvements to shelter now in progress. Hope Hitler has good eyesight
