Extract from ‘NEWSFRONT’ – 10th January, 1964:
Q. What would be the main repercussion, apart from belt-tightening, if we declared our independence?
A. I don’t think there will be any belt-tightening, when we are independent – the days of belt-tightening will be over. That’s for sure. As far as the City of London is concerned, it might be a three days wonder. For that reason I think that a Friday afternoon would be a good time. By Monday morning all the excitement (if any) would be over.
