Yes, Indeed

In a television programme called Points of View on June 1st, 1956, Sir Beverley Baxter spoke fervently in favour of minorities as such.

“Remember it is from the minorities that your leadership comes,” he said. And again: “In every civilization there is an old saying—look to your minorities.”

It is gratifying to hear such words—even though they are silly—from Sir Beverley. Perhaps in his next television appearance he will reconcile them with his contemptuous behaviour towards the S.P.G.B., which ranges from failing to turn up for a public debate to misrepresenting us in a newspaper and being thoroughly rude when he was asked about it.
