Embedded text or transcriptThe chairman declared the Party stood firm for a policy of happiness
Col. Blimp said that Cripps could talk of post-war recovery, but if this could only be realised through austerity, he should forget the whole thing and return to pre-war conditions
The Communist wing denounced the food crisis. The govt. should raise wages and let the workers eat the capitalists.
Mr. Musso favoured doubling incomes and prices all round, so that everybody could feel rich.
Mrs. Fusspot said they heard too much about output and not enough about input. If we were short of dollars why didn't we send to America and buy some?
Mr. Pinhead, M.P., said we should offer both hands to Moscow, taking care, of course, to get them back.
After a little committee work the Conference adjourned for a cool swim
