548Z. Godfrey Nicholson to Harrod, 3 February, 1939 [a]

Nicholson replies to Harrod's circular letter ( 894 ) to dissident conservatives, arguing that the Government after all still commands the confidence of the majority of the electors (especially of women), and doubting that `negative politics' could be successful because of the `conservativeness' of conservatives. He thinks that the only beneficial change in policy can come from a `palace revolt' within the ranks of the Conservative party.
