The Commons -
¶Stiffened with chivalrous disapprobation as Laborite J. J. ("Jumping Jack") Jones twice called Viscountess Astor a liar while she flayed corruption alleged to exist in his constituency, West Ham.
¶Relaxed chuckling when Jones, admonished by the speaker, "apologized," declaring that Lady Astor had been guilty not of a "lie" but of a "terminological inexactitude."
¶Noted that Lady Astor remained straight lipped, even when Jones achieved the excruciating West Ham witticism of shouting at Home Secretary ("Jix") Joynson-Hicks: "You're getting coal every day from filthy German Huns to break the coal strike! All right! Get your coal from Hell!"
