27. H. F. Scott-Stokes to Harrod, 15.xi.24
My dear Roy,
thankyou for your note and commendation - you may have seen that the creature drew blood yesterday with an indignant denunciation on the leader-page of the Morning Post - what more could one wish? Of course the preface was what they couldn't stomach. I should call it myself the most accurate election forecast I have seen; but I suppose they would hardly agree to that.
My Liberalism flourishes in adversity - here is a perfectly good excuse for a dignified abstention from the vulgar brawls of politics - if the Liberal party should go under; and if not, one will have stood by it nobly in the hour of need etc., & inevitably emerge as a Liberal statesman - marvellous. I only know that I dislike the other two parties more and more, the more I consider them.
