  1. My partner's step father was in service in WW2, - in the Wehrmacht!
  2. Easy to forget that it was only 21 years between the end of the Great War and the beginning of WW2!
  3. From a BBC profile on Farage: We drove to France with Mr Farage to indulge his other great passion - the battlefields of the Great War. He has been coming here for more than 30 years. His grandfather, Private Harry Farage, was wounded near Vimy Ridge at Arras. He says that when he first took visitors around the Western Front his colleagues in the City of London thought he was mad. Now he says everyone is doing it. It is a handy metaphor, perhaps, for his own political journey. For 16 long years, the UKIP leader has been coming to Brussels to wage war on the European Union. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-31771963
  4. My grandfather was in WW1 too, and I'm around Nigel's age.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Absolutely- I think people like her just want to ponce off another country's education system- cos it's 'free' in NL or Germany innit. If you're good you can do well in any country.
