Vote as Yon 're Told. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 22 August 1885

//.— -♦ ; ■ Vote as Ton 're Told. Alfred Midgley, the Member for Fassifern, is getting quite too delightful. He is a loyal supporter of the present Ministry, but his conscience, every now and again, jerks him up with a round turn, Thus, when Chubb asked the House to approve of the plans, &c., of the Bowen-Haughton Gap Eailway Midgley opened his contribution to the debate with this naive confession:— " If the Government do not regard the carrying of this motion as a too serious matter, I feel inclined to vote for it." Precious little " if 1" Midgley would like to res pect his conscience, if the Government did'nt for bid it! ■ _ See Sam employ Each humble fool As a small boy stern school. Out squints a stray eye, Out squeaks a dunce :~ " Please, Sammy, may I, Only this once, „ Vote as 1' wish ?" Sam looks askant, Says, with a pish, " No, sir, you can't!" Humbled dunce slaps his Brow, and collapses ! '
