Panter-Downes, Mollie
December 1961
New Yorker;12/9/1961, Vol. 37 Issue 43, p222
The article analyzes the reasons for the unpopularity of the London, England government as of 1961. Just like the days of Suez, the economic woes of workers and allegations of corruption were the reason for disapproval to the government. There are also unfavorable stories being linked to public officers like Mr. Mcmillan and Selwyn Lloyd. One reason cited for the negative feedback is the low housing qualities provided to city dwellers.
