1930, London, United Kingdom
This is a MovieTone interview with then Labour MP Sir Oswald Mosley about unemployment. He would later lead the Fascist Party.
It is the one problem that really matters today.
We live in a period in which politicians are not very popular. And believe me, you have my sympathy. Politicians are regarded as people who have learned to talk but not to act.
And you demand action, and rightly demand it, in dealing with unemployment.
We live in a period, when Britain can only survive by vigour and by action.
We have resources, of intellect, of energy, of craftsmanship, of skill, second to none in the world.
But those resources must be mobilised, for a great effort, of a united nation.
To do that, government and statesman, must take their courage in their hands.
