The Manchester Guardian is always stimulating and sometimes surprising. Some

of its observations on the unhappy Greek affair I found more of the latter order than the former. It may or may not be true that "British diplomatic prestige has fallen to its lowest point since Munich." Personally, I think it untrue, but as, since Munich, British prestige has been generally high, the allegation does not amount to much. But when I read an adjuration to Mr. Churchill, "Let him forget the obeisances he has thought it proper to make to monarchs in exile," (What monarchs ? Queen Willielmina ? King Haakon? King Zog?), I wonder whether—well, whether the change from the C. P. style is really a change for the better.
