For Future Reference

At a War Savings meeting held at the Mansion House on Monday, June 19th, Lord Buckmaster insisted on the following facts:
  • Four days of war represents the cost of a year of education.
  • Three days of war is more than the whole of the Old Age Pensions for a year.
  • Five weeks of war costs more than the annual peace budget.—“DailyMail,” June 20.

 

Therefore, said in effect my Lord Buck, with paralysing logic, hurry up and save more money to throw down the bloody sink!
