It is a significant commentary on the timeworn and threadbare policy of retrenchment and reform that was going to benefit the working class so much when the Liberal Party came into power, that the only perceptible influence upon the workers of that policy of economy is the discharge of a large number of workmen from the Government workshops. Woolwich is feeling the pinch pretty severely.
Yet there are some who cannot see that the Liberal party represents the interests of the master class against the workers. In politics, as in industry, what is the capitalist’s meat is the working man’s poison. In order that the capitalist ratepayer may have his burden lightened, the working class must be taught to starve.
If you lack necessaries in spite of your labour, it is because your masters enjoy luxury in spite of their idleness.
