S.C.U. Arthur Bottomley (as at the beginning in front of Houses of Parliament)
He talks about the stormy Byelection meeting...tomato throwing...
"I have here a pamphlet issued by The Confederation of British Industry..."
"Do you know we have the biggest navy of any country in Europe?"
(Shouting from audience)
"Everyone of those young men has the right to join the army, the navy or the air force".
"The nazis in the audience here have come along to break up a meeting of the Labour Party".
"They didn't fight themselves in the last war".
"Now then are you in the services?"
"How old are you now?"
"Why don't you join the service?"
"Have you joined the Armed Services?"
"...I was too young."
"How old are you now?"
"Well you could have joined the Armed Services 11 years ago."
Chanting "National Front, National Front..."
"This is the chanting that led 4 million people to the gas chamber in the last war".
"That's right, that's right. My own feeling is that people who are too cowardly to listen to an argument in a political hall would be too cowardly to face the music in the Services."
"People are not going to interrupt as before. If they are going to take a reasonable... than they can remain. But I want to assure you that if there is anything approaching the thing that has just happened then this meeting will have to..."
"One of the youths here who was complaining that our country is not properly defended hit Mr. Bottomley below the belt and this is typical of The National Front movement
It doesn't try to fight people it's own size and it doesn't fight fair, but thank God it represents an insignificant minority of the British people.
"There we are, British people with their freedom, their liberty, their democratic way of life and for a few people like this to challenge it, is a very frightening situation and in my judgement the political leaders, the press and the T.V. and the radio..should be concentrating on the democratic standards of the British people as a whole and not these few who are threatening the heritage and the great tradition of the British people."
(question by interviewer)
"I'm afraid not, I think this will wet their appetites. If we don't do things immediately I'm confident we'll have it again in the future."
