VE Day

Recommended Posts

There’s two houses opposite eachother that I pass on my morning walk who are in a great “I’m celebrating more than you!” dick measuring contest over VE Day. Each morning one of them has added something new but, and more importantly, bigger and more extravagant than the guy opposite

I'm not anti-war by conviction, as there are times when its justified, but anything that glorifies the military or puts it on a pedestal winds me up no end. There's been a creeping in of American-style hero worship over the past few years, which is about as much bollocks as religion.

In fairness the whole British nationalist jingoism that has hijacked such occasions goes against my political persuasions anyway, so I'll be ignoring the whole thing. This is not Remembrance Sunday, which is a different matter altogether (although also sadly hijacked).

A distant relative asked on Facebook if it was ok to put up 'England flags' as she had no Union Jack's. One guy replied to tell her, and I quote, 'Stick yes England flags up they the same'

You should be a good comrade and stick the Soviet flag on there too. They won it for us after all.

Does every white bloke over the age of 50 in this country think they fought in World War 2, or is that just local to me?

Will probably be the same with our generation and the Coronavirus.

Which they beat because of the Bulldog Spirit they used to win World War 2

VE Day or any war celebration just saddens me. Regardless of the supposed motivations, all I see are youngsters sent to die because they're given or told they have no choice.

My Grandad drove without a license his whole life and claimed that it was allowed because he drove tanks in WW2.

Turned out he was a chef in the army and never went anywhere near a tank. Happy VE Day.
