Professor Lyon Meese. (Liberal) was in the middle of a dignified address" . . . if Churchill had merely said, ' I am sorry,' but he tried to justify it "— when a voice bawled, " To hell with him." " Thai is a little outside the scope of my powers," said the professor.
Then Councillor J. Braddock (Labour) had this crack at the P.M,: " If Churchill goes on demanding unconditional surrender front our friends, as he is already doing from our enemies, he will soon be demanding it of the Isle of Man."
Laugh number three was raised by
