What has gone on in the Old Country more or less behind the scenes. Political developments in Great Britain since the speaker was last here in 1928. From Baldwin to MacDonald. The going of the gold standard. The speaker's encounter with Lord Beaverbrook on the day of the financial crash. MacDonald's response and strategy. The situation today as far as the government is concerned; the speaker's thoughts on what will happen in the near future. Mr. Ramsay MacDonald's star now waning, and why that is so. Mr. Baldwin's imminent retirement. A Conservative government under Mr. Neville Chamberlain to come. Progress to come in Canada.
