"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."

  3. 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.
