In 1939, Britain was the 2nd richest country in the world, behind America.(1n 1945 the USA was twice as rich as it had been in 1939)
For a whole year, from May 1940 to June 1941 we stood alone in protecting Civilisation against the Nazis.
Since 1945 Germany (and Japan) have saved on Defence spending – being under the USA’s nuclear umbrella and Germany doesn’t even pay her dues to Nato. No wonder Germany is awash with Money.
Germany owes us! We bankrupted ourselves in two wars against Germany when we were the only Guardians of Civilisation on this planet.
Don’t talk to me of us paying to leave the E.U. – Germany owes us BIGTIME! South Korea owes us; Afghanistan owes us; Kuwait owes us; Iraq owes us and The Falklands islands (having just made a big oil discovery off their islands) owe us too.
Bugger Brexit exit costs and E.U. demands – they’d all be talking German and goose-stepping up the Champs Elysees (and across Red Square) if it wasn’t for us in these little islands here.
P.S. In fact, the WHOLE of bloody Europe owes us – if not the Whole World !
