By FRANK DOOLIN LIVERPOOL Why is it that Left meetings are more humorous thart those of the Right—is it because the Leftists are so setious 7 The " Hands Off Greece " demonstration in the Picton Hall, Liverpool, on Thursday, last week, is a case in point.

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

Leo McGree (Communist candidate for Scotland Division, at present represented by Catholic David Logan), who declared that never since the days of Munich had we sunk so low. " One can almost see the bony hand of Chant. berlain reaching from „the -grave patting Churchill on the back, and saying, ' Well done, thou good and faithful screw t. "

Sir Richard Acland, M.P., did not say anything particularly funny, but his idea of correct dress for a unity of the Left gathering might be noted—he was attired in a blue suit and a bright red • tie.

Reference to clothes reminds me of the recent Communist Party bazaar in St. George's Hall, where I noticed the following poster: " Sign here now. Hands off Greece. Please leave the pencil."
