No.
When you posted about schoolkids cut up and fed to pigs, I asked you for details and searched for it myself.
You made it up.
It was a lie.

Likewise when you posted a "quote" and claimed it was from a non-existent site.
Google could only find your posting of it.
It was a lie.

Then you claimed that the November 2013 HPA/PHE November report on 2012 was an "interim report" and was "superseded."
None of that was true.

If you do not want to be known as a liar, stop making shit up.

The above sentence could be a true representation of what the British public believed.

It could also be a true representation of what the German public believed about Jews in November 1938, and for the exact same reason.....................PROPAGANDA!

"I am right of centre."

Keith A of Hertford.

Lighter notes The Donkeys (1961) by leading historian the late Alan Clark. His post was, to most people reading this thread in bemusement an example of how later historians are dismissing the work of credible historians such as Clark.

I asked the question in a mocking sense, as your stance is absurd. As many here are pointing out.

Do you have actual thoughts on the war, based on the copious amount of reading you have done? Any fruits of your efforts?

The one thing we don't know or understand is how people thought then. Watching old newsreels of the pals regiments being formed the patriotism the people had we can't start to understand. The belief that the viscous Hun was about to arrive on our shores drove people on to protect their families. Some people saw it as a great adventure. People still join the forces today arguably more informed that our ancestors and still suffer the ravages of war and conflicts. No matter how you view it, how you discuss it, still a sad loss of life.

You said, Dec 3, 2pm,
So you actually believe Germany had a snowball's chance in hell of invading occupying and taking over the British Isles?

Invasion was recognised as a serious threat in 1914, and many regiments were deployed to meet it.

page 125
"In 1914, invasion preparations and home defence measures were taken all along the east coast of Britain, from Scotland to Sussex.
While the authorities tried to keep these preparations out of the public eye-to avoid scaremongering, people witnessed them, stoking fear and anxiety.

What isn't widely known is that Kipling was very pointedly referring to Members of Parliament who before the war had denied there was any need for greater defense appropriations or a better equipped British Army.

Kipling's son John was killed on his first day of action. Kipling, who was neither a fool nor a dupe nor a profiteer, continued to support the Allied war effort to the end.

According to Oxford historian Margaret MacMillan:

"The wartime generals were not all cowards and incompetents as Alan Clark argued in his infamous 'The Donkeys' (1961). ... And was the war just a dreadful mistake or was it about something? ... It is condescending and wrong to think they were hoodwinked. British soldiers felt they were fighting for their country and its values."
