The Devil Next Door, Or A Farewell To Justice

Demjanjunk

In a recent Guardian article about Netflix’s new crime series, titled, “The Devil Next Door”, about John Demjanjuk,  who was prosecuted in Israel and Germany for Holocaust crimes, the author author Lucy Mangan starts by commenting on this photo of Mr. Demjanjuk, where she says, “If only there were indeed some art to find the mind’s construction in the face. What a different world that would be. Instead, we live in this one and its horrors may live anywhere.

What a way to start of a piece which argues that both their article , as well as Netflix’s series is somehow far and balanced. You see this story is bringing bought back to the front page because there where many who defended  his claim to being wrongly accused, most notably Jim Traficant , who was later assassinated by a mysterious tractor accident.  Those whom want us all subjugated use these narratives not only to sure up the HoloHoax  , but to further penetrate into the super-ego, so to remake what has been called justice in the western world. There is a heavy handed attempt to strip us of all our God given rights, and the first and most important step is to convince people that they have a moral obligation to fight EVIL where ever it is found and by any means necessary.  The foundational concepts of justice, nor logic, or reason have no place in this witch hunt which threats everyone of us.

NSDAP Plan For Agricultural Self Sufficiency

tumblr_n2egajje701tud3mwo1_500

From the Handbook for Schooling the Hitler Youth

Chapter Twelve: The Soil as a Source of Food Supply

The first necessity of all living things is food. From man’s first day he must be fed by the gifts of earth, fruits of the field, and the flesh of animals. Vegetation and animal life are in turn dependent upon the nature of the soil and climate. The soil, which supplies food for a people, has therefore the greatest economic significance for men.

The quality of the soil in the German Reich is not equally good everywhere. A large part of the German Reich is covered with sandy, marshy and rocky soil. The main part of this rather unfruitful soil comprises the non-arable mountain ranges and the north German plains once covered with ice. Only a proportionately small region has very good soil. It is distributed in the main along the lower courses of the German rivers (Rhine, Oder, Vistula), in south Westphalia, along the borders of Hanover, around the bays and inlets of Saxony, the Rhine basin, in Württemberg, lower Bavaria, and the Rhine-Main region, as well as the southern parts of Thüringia and middle Silesia.

Nor is the climate equally good everywhere in the German Reich. The mildest weather prevails along the Rhine, since warm air currents from the Mediterranean penetrate Germany through the doorway between the Alps and the Vosges Mountains. Along the coast a moderate, seasonable climate prevails because the sea brings about a balance of temperature and humidity. The farther the land is from the coast, the more extreme the climate. Hot summers and cold winters in the eastern sections allow only a comparatively short growing period. By reason of these influences of soil and climate the productiveness of the different farming areas in Germany varies greatly.

The German territory belongs within the great forest zone which stretches over the north of Europe, Asia and North America. Originally Germany was covered by a more or less dense forest. But now the encroachment of man has pressed the woodlands back to their present confines and opened up soil for cultivation.

From time immemorial men have not only gathered the products of the German soil but have regularly farmed it. The Norsemen of the early stone age cultivated twelve different kinds of grain. They raised fruit, flax, and many kinds of vegetables. With the exception of poultry they had all our domestic animals. The Germans went on to develop husbandry and cattle raising. They were a settled peasant folk who worked the soil without stint. When they came into contact with the Romans, their agrarian culture was already so high that the southern people took over from them, among other things, the wheel plough and the cultivation of rye. It was not the Romans nor even the monks who introduced farming into Germany. During the middle ages in Germany the transformation of the original soil into land for agricultural purposes began on an even larger scale. Forests were cleared, moors and marshes drained, and dams built to prevent the overflow of sea and river. This work has been continued down through the centuries. It is only necessary to recall the work of cultivation of Frederick the Great in Orderbruch and his homesteading activities in the rest of the German east. This work, even today, has not yet come to a halt. The Labour Service continues to win and make land for the German farmers. By persistent work the original land of nature became that kind of cultivated farm land which gives the central European space its marked German imprint.

The quality and limitations of the German land

Since 1919 the political territory of the German Reich has extended over an area of 472,000 square kilometers. More than a fourth is covered with forests; about 5 per cent is taken for dwelling purposes, streets, railroads and parks; 2 per cent is covered with water. Four per cent is wilderness. The remaining two-thirds (around 312,000 sq kilometers) is left for agriculture. The soil is used in the following ways:

-Farming includes an area as large as the provinces of Rhineland, Hesse-Nassau, Saxony, Brandenburg together with Grensmark, Silesia, East Prussia and Mecklenburg.

-Meadows and pasture lands are as great as the area of Hanover, Schleswig-Holdtein and Pomerania.

-German forests extend over an area as large as all of Wüttemberg, Baden and Bavaria

-The amount of wasteland is as large as a whole province the size of Westphalia.

In farming a variety of plants are cultivated, each according to the climatic conditions and the productiveness of the soil in the individual districts.

-Rye thrives best on the barren, sandy soil of North Germany and in the cool, mountain regions. -Wheat prefers the better soil of the hilly slopes in central Germany, the heavy, marshy soil along the Elbe and Vistula, and the loose soil of Silesia.

-Oats are better adapted to the niggardly soil of north-western Germany.

-Sugar beets are raised principally on the nutritive soil in Silesia and in the foothills of the mountains in central Germany.

-The potato has spread out over all Germany, but is raised especially in the central and eastern parts of the north German lowlands and on the mountains along the Rhine.

-Fodder in large amounts exists only in East Prussia, Saxony, Thüringia, Holstein and the Rhine valley.

-Truck farming is carried on principally in the vicinity of large cities. In addition there are rather large areas devoted to truck farming in Saxony, Thüringia, Holstein and the Rhine valley.

-The only vineyards today are along the Rhine and its tributaries (Mosel, Saar, Nahe, Neckar and Main), comprising nearly 10 per cent of the agricultural area. In this region a great deal of fine fruit is also cultivated.

Animal husbandry provides the German people with meat, fats, dairy products and eggs. Cattle raising is carried on primarily in regions along the northern coast of Germany, in the Alps and its foothills, while horse breeding takes place in East Prussia, Hanover, Bavaria and Brandenburg. Hog and sheep raising go on mainly in northern and central Germany. The principal regions of poultry farming are Pomerania and central Germany. [See map in online book here]

The German Reich is the most important producer of oats in Europe. It also produces a fourth of the world’s rye. In spite of the increased consumption of sugar since the War, German sugar production is still greater than the domestic needs. Rye, oats, and sugar beets were formerly exported therefore. All remaining agricultural products cover, however, only a part of Germany’s requirements. The German Reich could assure the feeding of its population only by means of imports.

During the preceding century as well as during the last decades those in responsible positions have faced this fact without concern. They have neglected German agriculture because of cheaper foreign prices. And so the basis for feeding our thickly populated Reich was destroyed. The experiences of the World War have taught us, in this regard, that the basis for feeding the German people must not be looked for abroad. For as sacrifices to the enemy blockade 88,000 undernourished women, children and old men died in 1915; 122,000 in 1916; 260,000 in 1917; and 294,000 in 1918. We will always experience this fate if we have not assured the feeding of our own people within our own territory.

The dictate of Versailles, by separating and taking away large surplus agricultural regions in West Prussia, Posen, North Schleswig and in Alsace, and by robbing German colonies, made the basis for feeding our people far worse. With the loss of the colonies, the Reich lost every chance for producing colonial products herself, such as cocoa, tea, coffee, bananas and tropical plants (coconuts and citrus fruits) and was made completely dependent upon imports so far as these are concerned.

tumblr_og50b8BkRc1tud3mwo1_1280

In the regions taken away along the frontiers, the Reich lost, along with one eighth of its territory, a yearly production of

  • 5,000,000 tons of grain
  • 11,000,000 tons of potatoes
  • 3,200,000 hogs
  • 2,600,000 head of cattle
  • 790,000 horses
  • 535,000 sheep

In 1914, the German colonies had the following areas devoted to plant husbandry:

  • 42,000 hectares of cocoa palms
  • 5000 hectares of oil palms
  • 13,200 hectares of cocoa
  • 4800 hectares of coffee
  • 2200 hectares of bananas

Rescuing German farmers from impending ruin

National Socialism has not remained inactive in the face of the present condition of our food supply. It has learned the lessons taught by the World War, and has done everything to assure the feeding of our people from its own soil. To this end agriculture had to be rescued from impending ruin first of all. Protection against foreclosures, reduction of the debt burden, and lowering of interest rates served this purpose. Then, by the National Inheritance law of September 29, 1933, farmers were relieved of the burdens of the capitalistic land law which treated land as an article of trade. From now on peasant estates are fundamentally non-saleable, non-distrainable, and indivisible. Any further pernicious breaking up of peasant holdings is thereby checked. The Reich Food Estate Law of September 13, 1933, supplied the legal basis for organising the agricultural estate itself. The farming population, broken up into many hundreds of organisations, associations and groups, was brought together into one great front and transformed into a mobilised instrument of National Socialist agrarian policy. By the same law a comprehensive system for regulating markets was also set up which assured the sale of agricultural products and provided an economically just price for them. And so the most important requisites for the work of reconstruction in the sphere of feeding a population were created. The Reich Peasant Leader could now issue the call for the battle of production which he did at the second Reich Peasant Day in Goslar in 1934. This battle should guarantee for us, in addition to the military independence which we have again won, an independence so far as food supplies are concerned, and free us so far as possible from the necessity of importing foodstuffs from abroad. Since it is actually impossible to reduce the consumption of foodstuffs, everything hinges on our ability to increase our domestic production of food supplies to equal the need.

The best methods of doing so are:

  • first, enlarging agriculturally usable areas;
  • second, increasing the productivity of existing farms;
  • third, reducing waste and destruction of agricultural products;
  • and finally, cultivating needed products which have up to this time not been produced at all, or not in sufficient quantities.

The extension of agriculturally usable areas is being realised by cultivation and land reclamation. From 1933 to 1936 the Office of Land Cultivation cultivated an area of 1,500,000,000 hectares with the help of official subventions and credits. One assumes an average increase in yield of 20 per cent, so this signifies a winning of 300,000 hectares of new land, whereas from 1929 to 1932, using the same method of reckoning, only a winning of 85,000 hectares of new land resulted. The accomplishments in the field of land cultivation, however, evidence only a beginning. During succeeding years the work will be continued and should, as the following presentation shows, make possible the recovery of about 6,500,000 hectares. [see chart on page 91 in online book here]

BDM in der Landwirtschaft

Increasing domestic production

The principal agency for carrying out the work of land rehabilitation is the National Labour Service. Besides numerous smaller reclamation undertakings, it is for the time being at work on 30 large projects, which alone comprise an area of 600,000 hectares. [see map at top of page 92 in online book here]

To increase the yield of existing farm lands, it is first of all necessary to strengthen the working forces on the land. On newly reclaimed land, as well as on other land which is not being profitably tilled, homesteaders and farmers are being established for this purpose. And here, too, National Socialism has done far more than the previous system, as we perceive from the following presentation: [see charts on page 92-93 and 94-95 here]

This presentation shows that we are still dependent upon imports for some important foodstuffs. Within the scope of the Four Year Plan efforts to increase still further the domestic production will be extended. The most important measures are:

  1. strengthening of land reclamation within the program of land cultivation,
  2. reduction in the price of fertilizer,
  3. speeding up the unification of diversified land-holdings,
  4. government aid for building manure tanks and sunken pits,
  5. raising the prices for rye and early potatoes,
  6. reducing the prices for seed potatoes through government aid,
  7. government aid for breaking up meadows and fencing in meadows and pastures,
  8. short term credits for construction purposes,
  9. government aid for building dwellings for land workers,
  10. building up of economic advisory services.

These government subventions obligate the German farmers, but not less so the German consumer. For the greatest efforts can only be fruitful naturally if they are supported by German comrades in every possible way. It is the public duty of every German, for the sake of attaining the goal which is being striven for, namely self-sufficiency in food, to cooperate by adapting his needs to those products over which Germany exercises control in fullest measure.

‘Hitler or Höcke?’

Image result for Björn Höcke

Björn Höcke, whom German intelligence services  have labeled an extremist, has beat German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s centre-right Christian Democratic Union in a regional election in Thuringia Germany, with 23.4% of the vote, up from 12.8%  five years ago . “There is nothing wrong with expressing our democratic opinion. We want Germany to remain German,” he tells his supporters, to ecstatic cheers after the results where made final.

“The press has an important role in a democracy,” he says. “Unfortunately our German media does not perform it. They prefer to produce propaganda for the establishment.”

The party seized on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to welcome over a million migrants to Germany in 2015. Two years later, the AfD became the first far-right party to enter Parliament since World War II. By now, it sits in every state legislature in the country.

Björn Höcke was a  secondary-school history teacher, and now the 47-year-old is a senior figure in the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). Though Mr Höcke is only a regional politician, yet nobody in current German politics has  a personality to rival his. Last month a public television network pulled a stunt in which they aimed to fan the flames of guilt and fear by comparing him to Hitler.

Image result for Björn Höcke

During the interview, he was shown footage of AfD parliamentarians in Berlin being read quotes from Mr Höcke’s recent political memoir and asked if they were from him – or Adolf Hitler’s  Mein Kampf.

All were unsure and one said: “If I’d to guess, then more from Mein Kampf, I’d say, not from Mr Höcke.”

Watching his party colleagues struggle to separate his language from the Adolf Hitler’s, Mr Höcke became angered at the lack of decency and fairness, and said, “These are all coincidences. Language cannot be linked to one particular time. All terms existed beforehand and after,” he said. “I don’t think there is one singular definition of what Nazi-era language is.” And further went on to say, ” “That says above all that most people have not read my book at all.”

His detractors  pointed out that in  Mein Kampf, Hitler warns of “hebräische Volksverderber” – a term meaning “Hebrew ruiners of the people”; in 2016 Mr Höcke used  “Volksverderber” to attack the then foreign minister, Sigmar Gabriel.  Without hebräische(Hebrew people), Volksverderber simply means corrupters of the people.

The interviewer continued to ask Höcke about other  terms he used – such as “degenerate”–  claiming it was also well-known in Nazi vocabulary.

Recovering from his visible outrage as the camera rolled, he suggested Germany had a “tendency . . . to narrow the opinion corridor and that is not good for our country”.

A majority of Germans were afraid to discuss certain topics for fear of blowback from the “political correctness police”, he suggested, indicating that “something is rotten in our democracy”.

Eventually his press spokesman could be heard off camera demanding the interview be restarted, but the interviewer refused, and  Mr Höcke said he might live to regret this decision, and that  it was clear that “there would be no more interviews with me for you,” said Höcke

Asked if this was a threat, the AfD politician said: “We don’t know what’s coming and I may become an interesting . . . political person in this country.”

Image result for Björn Höcke on television interview

Höcke was last a target of  the media when in 2017 he described Berlin’s Holocaust memorial as a “monument of shame in the heart of the capital” .

“We need nothing less than a 180-degree shift in the politics of remembrance,” he added during that speech in Dresden.

Mr Höcke has set up his own faction within the AfD called Der Flügel, or The Wing. At its annual meeting he hands out silver badges to loyal followers. At this year’s gathering a supporter welcomed him on stage by saying: “You are our leader, who we are happy to follow”. The German word he used was Anführer.

Political Prisoner Ursula Haverbeck, Who Celebrated Her 91st Birthday in Jail

 

Today I have received a letter from the brave campaigner from Truth in History, Ursula Haverbeck. Ursula expresses her astonishment and thanks for the amazing number of letters and cards of support that she receives from Britain and from France, and indeed from the whole world. In her letter to me Ursula H. singles out her specific thanks to Michele R. and to Peter R.

Let me repeat here, that letters and cards of support are a God-send to every brave and honourable patriot locked up in a narrow prison cell mixed in together with anti-social types and criminals, and isolated from the world and friendly faces – that’s prison, and in this nightmare “modern” world many of the prisoners will be Third-world criminals with Third-world personal habits.

All the more reason to send a friendly, cheerful card or letter, (which does not have to bear the address of the sender) to our brave Ursula:

Frau Ursula Haverbeck, JVA Bielefeld-Brackwede, Umlostrasse 100, D-33649, Germany.

Note on a related matter: The Jewish community in Bielefeld has raised its objections to a parade through the town, which friends and supporters of our Ursula have planed for next month, to commemorate her 91st birthday, that the astoundingly vigorous Ursula Haverbeck will “celebrate” in the Bielefeld prison (JVA).

Violins Of Hate

Tangomuerte

The world of violins is rife with chicanery, and deceit that is built upon the opinions of experts, who are also the dealers, so it is quite suiting that it joins the Holocaust industry for their most recent attempt to keep the hoax alive with “Violins of Hope”  , a show featuring violins that survived the Holocaust, oy vey.

The circus tent goes up at  Frazier History Museum in Louisville from October 17-27.  Andy Treinen, vice president of the museum hosting the event wants you to believe, “They were played because the Nazis mandated that they be played. Jewish people could not pray, they could not sing, and it became a background to the march to the death.”

One unnamed survivor of Auschwitz was a member of the men’s orchestra at the concentration camp. He would be forced to play his violin by camp officials, sometimes to serve as a backdrop for brutal executions. Wait hold it right there, enough already. This  makes no sense,   unless you are talking a fiction like “Shindler’s List”.

shindler

Above Gabriel Lefkowitz performs a solo from Shindler’s List on a violin which was used in performances at Auschwitz,  which he said “so beautifully captures the essence of the Jewish spirit.”  I would have to agree with that, Hollywood fiction. The musician isn’t the first in his lineage to be tasked with remembering the past. His father, a violinist with the Boston Symphony, has performed music that was written in concentration camps during the Holocaust. They so want us to believe the script. That in the face of daily horror beyond compare , the Jew found  time to compose. They are so chosen, so talented, so super human.

“It’s a really important time to be embarking on an adventure like this”, Lefkowitz said “simply because we’re at a point now where many people with first-hand experience of the Holocaust are no longer living. The chance to interact with these proofs and examples of history is really special. Proofs?

That unknown Auschwitz survivor, mentioned above, eventually sold his violin to a man named Abraham Davidowitz for $50. Davidowitz passed it down to his son, who eventually donated it to the Violins of Hope, a collection of more than 50 restored instruments that were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. That is proof, right?

Treinen says “what makes museums so important is their role in exposing the wrongs of the history. The fact that the Violins of Hope exhibit is so significant in that mission motivated Frazier to show it for free, something the museum does not usually do. ”  Though it actually exposes nothing, you are expected to take their word for it, or be labeled antisemitic . So again this story  only exposes more proof  of mental manipulation.

There are many stories from work camp inmates describing the activities they where allowed to peruse in their free time, and it seems orchestra and theater where some of there   favorites, but swimming and football was available for those not interested as much in performance.

“It was turned, and it became a powerful way for Jewish people to say that they aren’t going to be defined by anyone else, and these instruments are going to endure, and these stories of six million people are going to endure through the music,” Treinen said of the collection.

The only thing that has turned is an other page of Jewish hate,  and as soon as gentiles of the world stop seeing them as victims of evil beyond compare, they will start to see them as they really are.

Estonia and Latvia Double Down With Public Praise Of The Waffen SS

Latvian Monument

Latvian Defense Minister, Artis Pabriks, said veterans, his compatriots who fought in the Waffen-SS, were “heroes” and memories of their sacrifice must be cherished. “It is our duty to honor these Latvian patriots from all the depths of our souls,”

He then called the Latvian legionnaires freedom fighters for their anti-Soviet alignment – “heroes” and “the pride of the Latvian nation and state.”

“Standing next to our legionnaires’ graves and memorials, we are all overwhelmed with power and confidence that our country has a future, that we are on the right path,” the minister proclaimed.

Mores kaujas piemi?as pas?kums

The legionnaires comprised two grenadier divisions within the Waffen-SS that fought alongside regular troops during the war and became famous for their bravery. Germans began recruiting and drafting Latvians to fight against the Soviets shortly after invading and occupying Latvia in 1941, which was part of the USSR at the time. The Latvian soldiers were trained and led by German officers. When joining the legion, each soldier pledged personal loyalty to Adolf Hitler.

Former legionnaires and their supporters stage annual marches in downtown Riga. Their cause is supported by many local right-wing politicians, historians, writers and media figures.

LATVA

Estonia also plans to bring back a monument to their Waffen SS soldiers. The stela with a bronze bas-relief depicts an Estonian Volunteer, and a tablet reading: “To Estonian men who fought in 1940-1945 against Bolshevism and for the restoration of Estonian independence.” It caused a lot of controversy after being erected at the cemetery in the town of Lihula in August 2004. However, this June, a local MP Henn Polluaas for the Conservative People’s Party (EKRE) in the Laaneranna Parish Council suggested that it was high time to restore the SS monument. “It’s a very good undertaking because it’s a memorial to Estonian men,”

Despicable Jerry Klinger Chases Dead German Soldiers

Jerry Klinger

Jerry Klinger is a despicable peddler of hate. He is one of those Jews who has made it his life’s mission to tell grizzly fairy tales of the Holocaust Hoax and dehumanizing tales of Germans. Most recently he has started to raise shekels in order to have the grave of Paul Eilert removed from a U.S. military cemetery at  Ft. Douglas, Utah. Paul Eilert died  of cancer in 1944 while a POW. The controversy this twisted man is trying to stir up, with some friends of his,  is over the headstone which has a Knights Cross carved into it, which of coarse includes a small swastika at it’s center.

Paul-Eilert-gravestone-1

In his article he tries to build a case that there is some great mystery here. First he says that this carving represents the Knights Cross with oak Leaves , so ” “Eilert must have been involved in some deep Shit…”, he claims. “A professor noted under the Swastika on his memorial, the date of 1939.  He said that correlated with the beginning of the Holocaust.” He is really reaching here , and he must know it, for this year is on all KC medals awarded, due to that being the year it was established.

I will now point out that those are not Oak leaves on the headstone, and records do not even show that Eilert received a KC, and it is most likely that his Kameraden  asked for it to be carved when they purchased the headstone for reason unknown, but clearly they respected him.

Creepy Klinger goes on to say “The strange thing about Eilert’s funerary arrangements was that his fellow POWs pooled their money to buy him a large funerary stone carved with the K.C. and Oak Leaves.  They honored him above all others, but for what….?”, jeeeez I don’t know, maybe they admired the man?

To close his article we hear the not so convincing terror that is required to mobilize the congregation of Holocaust worshipers, ” I shared with my Jewish professor friend our mutual disgust with the symbol of hate honored in U.S. soil. Learning about him made me shiver with blood that ran colder than cold. I warned my professor friend, before he goes off and files his threatened lawsuit to have the Swastika removed, he needs to search much more.” Yes indeed, search some more and find that pile of shoes and blurry picture of a man that could be Eilert with the Doctor of Death himself.

I would like to thank Ellie Wolfe at https://fascistbostonian.com/ for sharing  Klinger’s story in her news feed.

Munich Agreement , 29th of September 1938

Neville Chamberlain visited Adolf Hitler at Berchtesgaden on September 15th 1938 to discuss the crisis in Sudetenland which led to the Munich Agreement on the 29th of September.

hitler-chamberlain-berghof-1938.jpg

Nevile Henderson pleaded with Chamberlain to go on negotiating with Hitler. He believed, like Lord Halifax, the Foreign Secretary, that the German claim to the Sudetenland in 1938 was a moral one, and he always reverted in his dispatches to his conviction that the Treaty of Versailles had been unfair to Germany. “At the same time, he was unsympathetic to feelers from the German opposition to Hitler seeking to enlist British support. Henderson thought, not unreasonably, that it was not the job of the British government to subvert the German government, and this view was shared by Chamberlain and Halifax”.

00hendersonN3.jpg

The meeting ended with Hitler, Chamberlain, Daladier and Mussolini signing the Munich Agreement which transferred the Sudetenland to Germany. “We, the German Führer and Chancellor and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for the two countries and for Europe. We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as Symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again. We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries.”

Nevile Henderson defended the agreement: “Germany thus incorporated the Sudeten lands in the Reich without bloodshed and without firing a shot. But she had not got all that Hitler wanted and which she would have got if the arbitrament had been left to war… The humiliation of the Czechs was a tragedy, but it was solely thanks to Mr. Chamberlain’s courage and pertinacity that a futile and senseless war was averted.”

Most of the newspapers agreed. For example, the Daily Express reported: “Be glad in your hearts. Give thanks to your God. People of Britain, your children are safe. Your husbands and your sons will not march to war Peace is a victory for all mankind. If we must have a victor, let us choose Chamberlain. For the Prime Minister’s conquests are mighty and enduring – millions of happy homes and hearts relieved of their burden. To him the laurels. And now let us go back to our own affairs. We have had enough of those menaces, conjured up from the Continent to confuse us.”
