He meant a bridge that all the darkies could use to go home. And, as I said, he was serious.
More BNP foolishness
Er, a boat or plane would be much easier...?
Not a very bright chap was he?
can you thank her for what her countrymen did
In the closing stages of WWII - and despite their outstanding & brave service (not least at Monte Cassino) - we pretty much turned our back on the Poles...
Back on topic: the BNP - the more they spout their pseudo-folk ancestry shite, the more I give thanks for my mongrel Heinz 57 genetic make-up. The **** dozy tawts.
Trouble is molgrips, if he'd said "with that money they could have bought all the darkies a plane ticket home" someone would have told him off.
......we pretty much turned our back on the Poles.....
I guess you are alluding to the decisions following the Yalta Conference? The conference at which Churchill stated, "we could never be content with any solution that did not leave Poland a free and independent state". (Stalin pledged to permit free elections in Poland, but eventually never honored his promise.)
Unfortunately the premise that the UK 'let down' Poland at Yalta fails to take into account that the writing was already on the wall with respect to the power of the UK on the international stage. WW2 took a lot more than lives and money from the UK and the British Empire as a whole. The fact that for a not insignificant time the UK alone stood against the forces of Nazi Germany hugely damaged the economy and later pleas of economic then eventually military assistance in fighting this global problem carried with them huge political and financial penalties, mainly imposed by the US as a way to 'get one over' the British.
At Yalta, although the British were represented by one of the most charismatic leaders this country has ever had, the lack of power he wielded in face of the political and financial penalties imposed by the US meant that there were only really two parties making the majority of decisions (US and USSR) with the UK only really having a voice on matters where it agreed with the US.
On the direct matter on Poland, the US was mainly concerned with appeasing the USSR in the short term and attempting to stop the spread of Communism and as such they were happy to allow the USSR to consolidate itself amongst the states of Eastern Europe, believing the spread of Communism would halt there. As the US had no interest in Poland the UK had no support on the matter.
Ilse Koch was accused of having inmates exterminated to make lampshades from their tattooed skin. It was never proven, but they definitely cut human tattoos from the victims at Buchenwald:
