Embedded text or transcript"The Wide Open Spaces" : We must close the gaps in the nation's defences" spouts Mr. Chamberlain. And those in the nation's offences, too, please. Your Candidate - Vote for Blimp and clean politics (H. and C.) - In response to many requests from the Hot Room Col. Blimp has consented to stand as candidate, upon a firm policy of shooting down politicians and establishing a Dictatorship of Colonels to safeguard Democracy. Manifesto : Gad, sir, we must have a bigger Army to protect the Navy and a bigger Navy to protect the Army. Only then can we fight the French and the Italians and the Abyssinians and keep the war from spreading. There can be no Naval Agreement unless everybody is conceded superiority - especially Britain.
Dammit!
We must have conscription if Liberty is to survive - Gad, sir, I stand for lower taxes on unemployed millionaires; and for raising the school age to cover Mr. Thomas. I will abolish socialistic experiments like the Post Office and the Sewage System. As for the Socialists, shoot 'em all down and then make 'em work. Bah! Complaints are made that the police are so busy on traffic duties that they have no time to attend to criminals.
