At Huddersfield.

At the Victoria Hall, Huddersfield, last Sunday evening, Mr. Ramsay MacDonald was on his feet for three-quarters of an hour before a sufficient number of his interrupters had been ejected to enable him to obtain a hearing. The police were called in to effect this artificial unanimity, and in the process free fights took place in the body of the hall.

And all because a politician makes a promise to women that he does not keep, and supports a Government he is in honour bound to turn out of office if it does not give votes to women. How much simpler to be honest, one would have thought!
