"You cannot hope to bribe or twist (thank god) the British journalist...."

"...though, seeing what the man will do unbribed, there's no occassion to."

As Chesterton wrote:

I am so swift to seize affronts,
My spirit is so high,
Whoever has insulted me
Some foreigner must die.

I brought a libel action,
For The Times had called me "thief",
Against a paper in Bordeaux,
A paper called Le Juif.

The Nation called me "cannibal"
I could not let it pass -
I got a retraction
From a journal in Alsace.

And when The Morning Post raked up
Some murders I'd devised,
A Polish organ of finance
At once apologised.

I know it sounds confusing -
But as Mr Lammle said,
The anger of a gentleman
Is boiling in my head.
