A Commonwealth Bank. Contributed by "GOLDEN WATTLE." [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 25 February 1911
A Commonwealth Bank. Contributed by ''GOLDEN WATTLE." Recent utterances by Mr. King O'Malley lead to the conclusion that a Commonwealth Bank is now within the sphere of practical politics. It is no longer a mere plank on a party platform; the time when it was a dream of financial and political theo- rists, the fond fancy of the building of Utopia is even more distant. To- day it is a question; before the year ends it may be the question. The public must take its stand, and careful consideration is required. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; There are two classes of thought &nbsp; whom to enlighten is impossible. One is impressive in numbers, and colossal in its ignorance. It is on the platform and the Labour party &nbsp; says so. That ends it with class one. Why it is rank Socialism, says class two. This class is not impressive in numbers, and if it's ignorance is colossal it is in spite of such advant- ages as leaves no excuse. This class is mostly educat...
