I'm just relieved that Dennis "National Treasure" Skinner saw sense on this occasion.

Yes, because we didn't win the war through constructing alliances, technological innovation and careful planning. Just a bit of blitz spirit and the queen mum on the old Joanna down the tube.

Fuckwit.

Jesus Christ.

The thing people never seem to get is that pronouncements like these, and those that are dodgy re race or sexuality or religion, or other contentiously stupid bullshit that so many people come out with, is that even if you can 'explain' it as 'a mistake' or 'out of context' or 'not accurately represented', pronouncements made in public come from a well of thoughts that will often be WORSE. Some people aren't self regulating and just spew shit out, but most are, and what we express in public is often the tip of the iceberg, and when that tip is so obviously dumb and/or heinous, it makes one sceptical. What would they say in private?! Their business, up to a point,.but when they inflict this shit on our ears, it becomes everyone's business...

The history of The War, in three parts.

1) We stood alone against the might of the Nazi war machine
2) The Yanks turned up late again and killed more of their own men than the Germans did
3) The Russians came along at the end and Stalin killed more than Hitler

And for an encore.

If my granddad could see what he fought for he'd wonder why he bothered.

It's interesting to compare the findings from the new BritainThinks survey with the one they conducted back in January 2017.

January 2017:

Bregrets? I’ve found very few. Polls show remainers are getting over it

Leavers are punching the air over Brexit, and even those who voted to stay in the EU now appear to be coming to terms with the result of the referendum

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... referendum

June 2019:

Divided, pessimistic, angry: survey reveals bleak mood of pre-Brexit UK

‘I can’t recall such despair,’ says top pollster, and 72% of population fear divisions will get worse
