Duffy states "It occurred to me at the time, that it was a very vindictive and malicious attack to make on a public man. Apart from stirring up bad feeling against Mr. Johnson, it occurred to me that if arising out of the Gas Workers' Strike, or any other dispute, any untoward incident should occur there was a definite invitation to injure Mr. Johnson. I was apprehensive that a physical attack might be made uopn him, and rather hinted he should not live at home until the phase should pass.".
