Ten Years After: a Reminder

By Philip Gibbs

United States of America: George H Doran, 1925. It would be a bad thing for the British people if that sweeping change were the sign of reaction to wooden-headed principles of autocratic rule and class legislation. It would be a worse thing for the world. But the new Conservative Government will have no support from the majority of those who voted for it if it interprets its power as a mandate for militarism, jingoism, or anti-democratic acts. The verdict of the ballot box was, certainly, not in favour of any black reaction, but in condemnation of certain foreign, revolutionary, and subversive in?uences with which the Labour Party were be lieved, fairly or unfairly, to be associated.. 1st.
