Writer Asleep

The diatribe on the Prime Ministers' Conference manifests the nineteenth century opinions of an ex-trente reactionary. He infers that we should have refused to compromise in Persia, without realising that Britain had but two alternatives either re-enter Persia as a subordinate partner, or lose all Interest in British interests in that country. The position was somewhat analagous in Egypt. Polemic must put himself to sleep by reading Kipling's verse and singing "Britannia Rules the Waves." One wonder if he was awake when he wrote the article.
