That is really interesting. The report of 28th August 1915, after the passing of the National Registration Act on 15th July, starts "The new movement in favour of National Service, which we desire heartily to support, has caused a singular outburst of recrimination, and we are told by the opponents of the movement that it will divide the nation, that it will shatter our unity, and that the war can never be carried on with purpose and effect if the movement is not dis- avowed. All this talk—if we may he allowed to express ourselves plainly—so far as it does not rest on a mis- understanding, is perfectly irrelevant.".

I think Asquith was a leader writer for The Spectator before he became PM.
