Embedded text or transcriptThe failure of some weak-minded young miners to realise their responsibility is
not so surprising, perhaps, after the spate of subversive nonsense uttered lately by a
section of their "betters". - Mr. Homo Sapiens, M.P. The Weekend Absentee Planning isn't
natural .... Every man for himself ... Aren't we fighting for Freedom? Self-interest is the
mainspring .... Work for the common good is unmanly Beveridge? Idealistic rot!
"Better-world" talk is all bosh.
