Editorial - "A triumph for unity"

The city has placed an emphatic vote of confidence in the Coalition Government led by Lloyd George and Mr Bonar Law in respect of the conduct of the war and in anticipation of the Peace Conference. Despite all efforts of opponents to camouflage their opposition and distance the issue the local Worcestershire Coalition-Unionist candidates secured clear and complete majorities, Sir Edward Goulding, Commander Eyres-Monsell and Major Knight in Kidderminster. What would have happened in West Worcestershire if Mr Stanley Baldwin had been opposed by a Pacifist can easily be imagined.
