Course not. Cos if you got bombed it was blitz spirit and all that and you magically got your house rebuilt overnight by your neighbours whilst Vera Lynn sang to them.
Whereas the reality... again, it's post-war twunts living a proxy WW2 life with all the bad shit omitted.
My grandfather, whom died years before I was born, was a serving soldier during WWII when during the Belfast blitz, his wife and (then) only son were killed in one of the raids. I'd have my doubts that he would have wallowed much in such a "blitz spirit".
I must mention however that he later remarried, fathered my, erm, father with his new wife and here I am. So if it wasn't for the Nazis, I wouldn't be here!
"Unsubstantiated opinions, speeches, empty rhetoric and a bogus historical parallel [to the Nazis] are not a substitute for facts."
