“There can be no two opinions about it.

The Bad Men must be caught.”

The Leader of the Opposition in week-end speech

Week-End Tension

The news that the drugging of members of the English team was the work of the Bad Men spread like wild-fire. It is not too much to say that the country throbbed with indignation. It was felt that a foul blow had been dealt at a cherished national institution.

At the time of the assassination of the President of Guamelia and also at the blowing up of the National Bank of Gloritana, the Bad Men had been regarded with a certain sympathy as brilliant and daring criminals facing tremendous odds. But this matter of interfering with a Test Match was felt to be in a different category altogether. All over England men and women discussed the outrage with horror and loathing. With a single voice the country demanded that the Bad Men must be brought to book.

Any suspicion that the Bad Men had been employed by the Imperians themselves was dispelled when Lethbridge issued a statement.

“I am profoundly shocked by today’s events. All Imperia will feel the same. Everyone is very fit. I still hope the best team will win.”

The Sunday Press enjoyed the unique situation to the utmost. The Sunday Weight in its sober fashion advocated steadiness to its readers.
