A gem hath fallen from the lips of one of our “great” men, and we must hasten to put it in a suitable setting lest it escape the notice of posterity.
One, Joynson-Hicks, speaking in the House of Commons on the 17th of December did give utterance to the following:
“So far as Joynson-Hicks and Co. is concerned, I was, of course, senior partner, but I have nothing to do with the management of the business,” (reported by the “Daily News,” 18-12-25).
Verily the ways of our great men of business are strange ; they “direct” in a manner that requires neither their presence not assistance !
(Socialist Standard, January 1926)
