PEN AND INK

ILLUSTRATED: PUNCH 2 MARCH 1955, PAGE 275

GOOD PLATFORM PHRASES DON'T CROP UP EVERY DAY, SO MR BUTLER'S REMARK ABOUT DOUBLING OUR STANDARD OF LIVING HAS BEEN SEIZED ON EAGERLY BY POLITICAL SPEAKERS. ALREADY MR GEOFFREY LLOYD, MINISTER OF FUEL AND POWER, HAS TRIED IT ON A BIRMINGHAM AUDIENCE, AND MR HAROLD WATKINSON, PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE MINISTRY OF LABOUR, HAS FIRED IT OFF SUCCESSFULLY AT A MEETING IN BRISTOL. NO ONE SO FAR HAS ASKED WHAT IT MEANS HOWEVER. IF IT SIMPLY MEANS TWO OF EVERYTHING INSTEAD OF ONE, IT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED THAT POLITICAL SPEAKERS WILL INEVITABLY BE INCLUDED
