The Printers Object to an Article (1952)

From the March 1952 issue of the Socialist Standard

An article that should have appeared in this issue entitled “The King is Dead” has had to be withdrawn. The compositors' chapel at our printers objected to the article, and it was too late to carry the matter further without holding up publication of the issue.

The article dealt with the general question of kingship from an historical point of view, and only had two incidental references to King George VI in his capacity as king.
