—I can understand "Not Very Very Amused" in your last issue being so indignant with "Law Student," who got so annoyed about a supposed "small minority" of anti-Fascist students. But I can also understand how deeply upset "Law Student" is I deeply sympathise with him and respectfully suggest the following method to do away with the nuisance of which he complains. It's quite simple, really.
Beat Fascism! Then the anti-Fascist minority wouldn't have a leg to stand on. Bet that'd nark 'em.
And how to beat Fascism? Well, I take it of course that "Law Student" has been for some time an active member of the Home Guard or E.P.S.
But has he thought of the even more crushing weapons against Fascism and of course against "the very very anti-Fascist minority" as well? How about National Savings? Every 6d. is a punch in the eye for Hitler, Would he be prepared to take over the organisation of a group at the College? It's about time we had one, surely.
Then again, the Stud. Ass. want to run another work day for patriotic funds. What about helping with its organisation? Every penny in the patriotic funds is a nail in Hitler's coffin and the coffin of the "very very anti-Fascist minority" too.
