"Show us your willy!"

Isn't that what all the fuss is about with "the Donald" - giving the ferret a run in a burrow that wasn't his?

Call me naive but at least he doesn't pretend to be something he isn't. What you see is what you get and so far the credit ledger is ahead of the deficit.

I doubt in the world of 1931, 'the Don' or any 'Don' would have existed. He is more of a cultural phenomenon than anything else. We have deployed 'revulsion' as a means of expressing our own revulsion at an entire political, economic, academic and ruling class of entrenched miscreants. This class seems to be in a dither...'The Don' shows his arse which makes this 'class' show themselves for all to see.

A touch of this may begin showing up in Europe. Hopefully. If it is to survive.

Duffers - I haven't yet read the book, but in your view as a military man and political commentator, what do you think they should have done differently? (genuine question)

Hitler was determined to have a war of conquest to the East.

MacMillan, much maligned in my view, did all he could to prevent or at least delay it, and quite rightly so. If you are saying that Britain and France should have sped up rearmament sooner, they would most likely have precipated an earlier war, at least that was their fear, and their electorates wouldn't have stood for it.

Hitler didn't care about the opinions of his electorate and so was much freer to do what he wanted to plus the Germans, while they were winning, were all for him, and swallowed his idiotic, loathsome ravings hook line and sinker.

Well, Cuffers, in my view as an opiniated ex-corporal, they should have agreed to waive all further WWI reparations from Germany which MIGHT have stopped Hitler winning an election. Of course, it might not but the French refusal gave him an enormous boost and thus a veneer of respectability when he won it.
