Embedded text or transcriptDear Mr. Editor: following your instrucions, Col. Blimp and I disguised in
totalitarian wigs gate-crashed the T.U.C. secret junta at Brighton 2. After tripping over
the noted anarchist Lord Citrine coming out - 3. and bouncing off Lord Gibson, the Bank of
England Bolshevik, in the corridor - 4. We came to the beer-cellar where the Dukes,
supported by Dame Anne Loughlin and Viscount Tewson, was in the middle of an extremely
dangerous speech about the need for everybody to do his best for the nation. 5. Several
minor peers followed, expressing most inflammatory ideas about work. 6. At this point Col.
Blimp, bursting with patriotic indignation, took the stand and shouted "Up the rebels!" 7.
"Oh," says Lord Deakin, "Two of Harry Pollitt's boys, eh? OUT!" Something must be done
about the Closed Shop immediately.
