Polite Guest BS: Could the UK have defeated Germany ? (90* d) RE: BS: Could the UK have defeated Germany ? 17 Jun 08

"If we hadnīt come in could the Brits really have defeated the German war machine ? "

Oh hell, of course we would of! Not only did we have Churchill, but we had Douglas Bader AND Vera Lynn. :0)

But, even more importantly, the British people, back then, would *never* have let themselves be invaded. We were, and are, an incredible People. We are at our best when facing adversity, always have been. It still runs in our blood.

" 'We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills..." It is said that, as he paused, in the great uproar that greeted these words, Churchill muttered to a colleague next to him 'And we'll fight them with the butt ends of broken beer bottles, because that's bloody well all we've got!'" - taken from 'The Wicked Wit of Winston Churchill'

We would of too.

Just lately though, we've lost our way, given in, when we should actually be 'fighting on those beaches' once again, but this time against the biggest enemy of all, apathy. We need another Churchill, but sadly, right now we have only 'Cutthroats, Crooks and Conmen running this land' (to quote Show of Hands)
