On June 6, 1944, hundreds of thousands of brave British and Irish servicemen stormed the beaches of Normandy in an assault that would eventually end Adolf Hitler’s Nazi dictatorship in Europe.
That was 77 years ago. When they came home, most of the people involved helped elect the Labour government that created the National Health Service, among many other great institutions. And now, most of them have passed away.
I’m going to be controversial now, and suggest that it might be just as well – because if they had lived to see what Boris Johnson and his Conservatives are doing to the nation for which they so proudly fought, it would probably have killed them.
In rough figures, British casualties on D-Day totalled around 2,700. That’s roughly half the number of new Covid-19 cases recorded yesterday because Boris Johnson’s government couldn’t be bothered to take appropriate measures to keep the delta variant out of the UK.
The total number of people who died and were injured in World War II was roughly 451,000. That is fewer than the number who have died due to Conservative policies since that party came into office in 2010.
Here comes the punchline: The men who fought and died on Sword Beach and Gold Beach laid down their lives to bring Hitler and his Nazis to justice.
Boris Johnson and his Tories will never be brought to justice because they are currently legislating to put themselves above the law – forever.
Look at the way Priti Patel locks human beings in concentration camps, where they suffer in appalling conditions that have caused at least one large fire and outbreaks of Covid-19 affecting hundreds.
Look at the hundreds of thousands of sick and disabled people who have died because the Tories denied them the benefit payments they deserved. Aktion T4 killed fewer.
They are imposing a dictatorship on the UK that could become worse than anything Hitler did.
How do you think our servicemen on D-Day would feel if they knew they were fighting for that?

Exactly………….Not so sure they are Tory now more Globalists in waiting. They are following Globalist playlists with everything that they do to sabotage the UK for their takeover reset plans and a New World Order. The Covid plans have been played from day 1 and opened up the UK to draconian lock downs and house arrests with barely a whimper from politicians. This morning labour spokeswomen was more or less endorsing capitulation backed up by the arch Globalist Tony Bliar who has been most likely promised a region for his usual treacherous services rendered. Bring back capital punishment for treachery and crimes against humanity.
Constantly focusing on events which are now nearly 100 years old is a common fascist tory tactic because it ensures peasants’ attention is diverted from the current issues and instead a mythical notion is perpetuated! Little England saved Europe – well done – now Little England is a little fortress replete with fascist government and an overwhelming hatred and contempt for any woman, child or man who is viewed as ‘not English but a nasty foreigner attempting to infiltrate our paradise (sic!).
Fascism was not destroyed because immediately after end of WW II the English fascists re-started their campaign of demonising jewish women, children and men as well as so-called ‘nasty refugees’ having the audacity to claim aslyum – nothing changes!
Is that right? I’d like to see some documentary evidence of that. Would be interesting to find out who was responsible for it.
Sadly, the only opposition the Tories have, appears to be just as corrupt and untrustworthy as they are.
