Embedded text or transcript"I.R.A. TO BOMB PARLIAMENT" - Report (Scene under the House of Commons) "Who am
Oi, is it? Begobs it's mesilf, Pat O'Fawkes, an' goin' to pull down England by blowin' it
up - that'll teach ould Cromwell to shtop his interferin' in the peaceful warfare av a
frindly inimy." "EVE" This talk about introducing wasp-waist fashions again is obviously
just a try-on by some rival of Epstein's who wants to get in first with a companion to
"ADAM". THE POWERS BEHIND Since Chamberlain admits that he consults Old Moore, and Hitler
is known to base his policy on the stars, it seems high time we got down to realities and
called a World Conference of soothsayers, medicine men and witches to fix everything once
for all. DOUBLE TROUBLE Disagreement on policy is reported among Hitler's 7 doubles, as to
whether or not they are to have a nervous breakdown. BLIMP Notice: In view of forth-coming
black-out, Low is now practising drawing in the dark. Gad, sir, Mr. C. is right. No British
Government can be made to wear it's pants back to front at the demand of another Power -
unless, of course the Power insists. ADOLF, A.R.P. GOAT Shelter now officially declared
safe so long as war is avoided. Trouble reported in emergency rations dept., Adolf having
bolted tin of vegetable soup without removing lid. Musso training for Newfoundland service.
