by BERNARD SHAW adapted for radio by JACK WILLIS with Arthur Lowe
' The Suffragettes are a very small body; but they are numerous enough to be troublesome - even dangerous - when they are all concentrated in one place.... But by making a two-mile radius and pushing them beyond it, you scatter their attack over a circular line 12 miles long. Just what Wellington would have done.'
