  1. 100 Years since the End of the First World War

    If Britain and France had opposed Herr Hitler when he, occupied the Ruhr, Anschluss with Austria, swallowed up the Czechs (his generals were going to oust Hitler if Chamberlain hadn't signed Munich); invaded Poland - even as late as Poland, we would have been fighting a western front rather than dropping leaflets saying, ''don't go to war, you'll regret it''. What a bunch of fannys.
  2. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2018 Edition

    I have been watching a bunch of (modern day) Nazi/war films, Valkyrie (2008) It took me this long to finally see it. Not bad. I liked the location work, filmed where the really plotters were executed, the Bendlerblock, the old Berlin Imperial Naval offices which I believe was housing army office space by the Hitler era. Eddie Izzard as a Nazi haha. Conspiracy (2001) This is about the Wannsee Conference of 1942, the meeting that coordinated the Final Solution, and rather played like a stagey theatrical piece by which there is an ironic callousness generated by the juxtapose of fat Germans gormandizing at this sumptuous banquet in this gorgeous mansion whilst plotting the bureaucratic murder of six million. Branagh is superb as Heydrich - looks bugger all like him mind. A heavy weight thespian piece. The Lost Battalion (2001) This is a generally superb war film about the 77th US Division who were surrounded at Meuse-Argonne 1918 and didn't surrender. The Book Thief (2013) Very well acted/directed but meanders into schmaltz at times. I'd recommend any of these films but especially Conspiracy and The Lost Battalion.

    Well it was Sven's best competition but that is not saying much.
  4. Special Alert for GNR Fans!

    It's like the lithograph thing where some bugger gets to the venue early and snaps up every one.
  5. British Politics

    The actual comment (''protect us against China, Russia and even the United States of America''') referred to cyber attacks, so Trump idiotically was conflating two separate remarks, and indeed Macron possesses a point here as I know the United States under the Obama administration was discovered phone-tapping Merkel. And no, I cannot agree with a EU Army. I basically think there should be a France, a Germany, a Britain, etc., and they all should have their separate sovereignties, currencies and armies.
  6. British Politics

    It is also going to be aimed at the United States according to Macron! So you could rephrase that question to, would you rather go to war with the United States alone?
  7. Samuel Pepys buried his wine and cheese during The Great Fire of London, so perhaps Rose similarly has buried his master reels for Atlas Shrugged, Soul Monster and so forth in his garden? Actually I always envisioned The Vault to be an underground chamber.
  8. British Politics

    Well Macron and Merkel are both espousing a EU Army, so if we were remaining we'd presumably be assigned a quota of soldiers for this tin pot force of surrender monkeys and guilt ridden leftists.
  9. British Politics

    See, even you're joking about the prospect of a EU Army and you support this horrid organisation!
  10. British Politics

    Are you looking forward to your EU army then?
  11. British Politics

    What about the far left who also support Brexit?
  12. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2018 Edition

    Two Fritz Lang classics, The Big Heat (1953) Probably Lang's most revered American film, a quintessential noir hard-boiler with Glenn Ford. Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse (1933) Talkie sequel. Although it lacks the original silent's effervescent ''expressionist'' charm, this is a more than worthy sequel. Inspector Lohmann memorably appears from M - same actor (Otto Wernicke) - thus implying a shared Dr Mabuse-Hans Beckert universe haha.

    Wouldn't go that far. Last time I saw him for the 3 Lions he was out of puff after 30 minutes during a match in which the Iceland defence/midfield had him on a string. Chucking goals in in a Lichtenstein friendly doesn't make you our greatest goal scorer either.
  14. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Well it is difficult to interpret, ''protect us against China, Russia and even the United States of America'' otherwise. A EU army would get a thorough pasting from the yanks haha. ''We kommen in peace to spread LGBT issues and beat ourselves up with historic guilt''. The EU army's uniform will have sequins haha, doing their best Eurovision manouvers.
