    ...and undertakers, surely?

    Say what you like about him, but that Adolf Hitler has good taste in architecture.

    Having said that, I hope he's not planning any major projects in Dresden. Beautiful city with loads of historic buildings

    He might get a job with our lads on the building sites if the Nazi thing doesn't work out.

    Probably too expensive and the British won't supply such advanced aircraft to us.

  • Good to see the pope recognising the valiant efforts of the 3200 veterans of the Spanish war.

  • The thought just struck me my own date of birth is closer to the outbreak of world war 2 than it is to the current date.
    In 100 years we’ll all be seen as roughly the generation after world war 2 our lives being lived much closer to the events of world war 2 and of little relevance to whatever is happening in 2121.
    The less nuanced observers of the future will nearly see us as being part of it.

    Your reading too much of that mein kampf that was just the ramblings of a young dissafected man in the aftermath of the bitter defeat in the Great War.
    Germany is different now.

    Hitler is a pacifist now he says it himself he just wants what’s best for German people as any leader of any country would want.
    Do you honestly think he would sign a non aggression pact with Stalin if he was hell bent on that lebensraum nonsense.
    What’s he going to do with all the people currently living in these so called lebensraum areas just get rid of them? It’s impossible.
    It’s all nonsense will never happen.

    We need a new Holy League to stand firm against these godless Bolsheviks.

  • But if they land here we get to keep them ?


    True enough but we'll need spares to keep them flying. Still it would be nice to have at least a few planes that could intercept a bomber if needed. Like going to bomb someplace important like the Dail or a major creamery.
