‘This isn’t the Britain we fought for,’ say the ‘unknown warriors’ of WWII

They despise what has become of the Britain they once fought to save. It’s not our country any more, they say, in sorrow and anger. Sarah harks back to the days when ‘people kept the laws and were polite and courteous. We didn’t have much money, but we were contented and happy. ‘People whistled and sang. There was still the United Kingdom, our country, which we had fought for, our freedom, democracy. But where is it now?!’
Sarah Robinson, who joined the Royal Navy when she was 18, says the Britain she once knew no longer exists
Curious about his grandmother’s generation and what they did in the war, he decided three years ago to send letters to local newspapers across the country asking for those who lived through the war to write to him with their experiences.
He rounded off his request with this question: ‘Are you happy with how your country has turned out? What do you think your fallen comrades would have made of life in 21st-century Britain?’
What is extraordinary about the 150 replies he received, which he has now published as a book, is their vehement insistence that those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the war would now be turning in their graves.
There is the occasional bright spot – one veteran describes Britain as ‘still the best country in the world’ – but the overall tone is one of profound disillusionment.
‘I sing no song for the once-proud country that spawned me,’ wrote a sailor who fought the Japanese in the Far East, ‘and I wonder why I ever tried.’
‘My patriotism has gone out of the window,’ said another ex-serviceman.
In the Mail this week, Gordon Brown wrote about ‘our debt of dignity to the war generation’.
But the truth that emerges from these letters is that the survivors of that war generation have nothing but contempt for his government.
They feel, in a word that leaps out time and time again, ‘betrayed’.
New Labour, said one ex-commando who took part in the disastrous Dieppe raid in which 4,000 men were lost, was ‘more of a shambles than some of the actions I was in during the war, and that’s saying something!’
He added: ‘Those comrades of mine who never made it back would be appalled if they could see the world as it is today.
‘They would wonder what happened to the Brave New World they fought so damned hard for.’
Nor can David Cameron take any comfort from the elderly.
His ‘hug a hoodie’ advice was scorned by a generation of brave men and women now too scared, they say, to leave their homes at night.
Immigration tops the list of complaints.
Some WWII soldiers, and families of those lost in the war, have complained society today shows no sign of the effort they made to help ‘This Land of Hope and Glory is just a land of yobs and drunks’

‘People come here, get everything they ask, for free, laughing at our expense,’ was a typical observation.
‘We old people struggle on pensions, not knowing how to make ends meet. If I had my time again, would we fight as before? Need you ask?’
Many writers are bewildered and overwhelmed by a multicultural Britain that, they say bitterly, they were never consulted about nor feel comfortable with.
‘Our country has been given away to foreigners while we, the generation who fought for freedom, are having to sell our homes for care and are being refused medical services because incomers come first.’
My Comment: Sorry ladies and gents, and to your fallen comrades, BUT it ought to be obvious now that you fought on the wrong side, and that you were pawns in the hands of the butcher Churchill and his Jewish-Banker masters. What you now complain of in England is EXACTLY what Hitler and other German World War I veterans lamented of when they looked around Weimar Germany. Hitler and the NSDAP then corrected it, only to have YOU, the BRIZIS, the RUSKIZ and YANKIZ tear it down again, and at the expense of your own nation and culture, as well as, the Germans, who were merely the first to lose their country and heritage to “liberalism” ie Freemasonic-Judaic-Zionistic-Communistic-DEMONocracy.
“Mr Churchill ought perhaps for once to believe me, when I prophesy that a great empire will be destroyed – an empire which it was never my intention to destroy or even to harm.” ~ Adolf Hitler
And was he not right? Hitler wanted “peace” and offered it numerous times, and he wanted “a new social state of the highest culture”, and security, integrity, prosperity and honour for his people. Nothing more.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. ~ Gandhi
You ignored him, then you laughed, then you attacked, and you lost!
Deal with it!
I highly recommend
The sequel to VIP’s “The Hyenas of High Finance” and prequel to “Albion & Zion United”. The tiny island nation of England had bludgeoned one-third of Earth’s inhabitants into imperial servitude. Yet, she had the audacity to denounce the Third Reich as a “tyranny.” She had not the shrewdness to foresee that the German Reich would not submit to her tyranny like so many others. National Socialist Germany under the perspicacious leadership of the NSDAP became a world center of anti-British propaganda, resistance and hope. This book, the first of its kind, tells this tale from an unapologetic, National Socialist German perspective. Visit veraiconapublishers.org for more info.
