“We should understand the way fascism arose in Germany and the circumstances that gave space for the Nazis to grow.”
On 26 January 2018, Mr Corbyn wrote that in the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Memorial Day Book, remembered in the UK as a promise never to allow such evil against Jewish people ever again. He was at best disingenuous. Has he already forgotten his attempt to build a student army, after promising to pay their current University charges?
Now he is being condemned for not mentioning Jewish people’s suffering in the Memorial Book. The Jewish Leadership Council said it demonstrated “a complete lack of sensitivity”. * It is also an exact description of Mr Corbyn and he appears to be using it, at every opportunity, to draw attention to himself.
Apart from Mr Corbyn, this government has just signed a treaty with Poland. What for? Is Russia going to invade? The Russian Ambassador to the UK was bordering on insulting when he laughed off the idea.
As intelligent people, we will not repeat history. It sounds like dangerous posturing by some part of the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) to stockpile weapons. If it is Procurement, replace them. May I suggest that the new Defence Secretary compiles his own ideas, rather than parroting the views of Generals who are happy to go to war with anyone and spend our NHS millions on bombs.
And yesterday’s ‘The Daily Telegraph’ trumpets that Russia has attempted to infiltrate our infrastructure to find out how it works and then destroy it. Do wake up. This is the unpleasant facet of all major nations. Ultimately, they want to rule the world, so they start with this small country, which is ready to fight, even in the desert, to uphold its, what exactly? Freedom? What freedom do we have when we allow the EU to steamroller us?
However, we could have a little joke with them. They are rightly terrified of Boris. He may say something so complicated that EU translators will be tearing their hair out! Put him in the UK Brexit team and he will force the Europeans to respect us.
Why did we help destroy Syria, a 3000-year-old trade route? Former Prime Minister, David Cameron had a paradigm shift of an idea, when he suggested that instead of invading countries outside Europe, we should use our skills to put them on a sound economical and cultural level. Interesting culture means tourists will visit.
His idea could have worked, but sadly, he staked his leadership on remaining in Europe and the British people voted to leave, on immigration and not having EU control over our laws any more. Not that we do have any control. A little whisper said on a News programme, before Christmas 2017, that MP’s were sitting late into the night to put EU laws into UK justice. Excuse me? I understood that UK MP’s were sitting late with a view to amending laws and not instating them left, right and centre. This small island has the best skilled workers in the world and people come here to live, as they like us. I hope that Lloyd Blankfein likes sausage.
