His Majesty King Clynes. (1920)

From the March 1920 issue of the Socialist Standard

In a letter to a Herefordshire lieutenant-colonel a copy of which he sent to the “Times,” J. R. Clynes said (according to the “Evening News,” 30.1.20.): “Always I have expressed my gratitude and thankfulness for the sacrifices and valour of the thousands of rich young man who left everything and faced the risks of war."

Clynes should be careful—it was this spirit of bumptious, inflated importance the part of the other Kaiser that, according to some people, caused the war.

This wee snippet was signed 'A.A.', which I'm assuming was Alex Anderson.
