    Can’t see what grounds they have to sue presumably Deloitte did what they were paid to do (look the other way). I’m sure they were shocked, shocked When the financial bad practice came to light

    reminder that these companies have cost us as a country far more than a few lads scrounging a few extra quid in benefits ever will

      the letter is hilarious-Churchill stood alone against ta storm of steel apparently, they need to start learning Russian history in English schools
      Look, I'm not defending Churchill here. But from June 1940 to July 1941 Britain really did stand pretty much alone against the Nazi threat. If they'd signed a peace accord of some kind then Operation Barbarossa gets the full attention of German High Command and the United States likely doesn't enter the war in the Atlantic, instead focusing its efforts on the Pacific theatre. I mean, it's a counterfactual, but Churchill's obstinate refusal to sue for peace in that period really was an astonishing act of national bravery.

      Does it excuse anything else he ever did? No. Does it undermine the incredible effort of the Russians during the war? No. Should the Russian contribution be better recognised in Western historical education? Absolutely. But it's hard to deny Churchill's role in holding the western front as a front at all during that awful 12-18 months before Russia and the US both entered on the Allied side.

        Nick Hanauer has a great line in one of his talks about this where he says one of modern capitalism's greatest achievements is getting the middle class to blame the lower class rather than directing anger at things that really matter. Cup and ball trick.

          How is this being viewed in the medical community? Beijing reported a new outbreak and reports say they are bracing for a second wave and already started reimposing some lockdowns.

                Bravery ? Ha . He was an expert in allowing people to die . Bravery was the Jack's who did his bidding. Ugly man. Much like Cromwell who as I recall you liked to revise opinion upward. I dare say England had zero choice in taking the stance they did .

                    Applied for a college course in DCU back in February, had pretty much given up on it in current circumstances, got a letter yesterday to say I've been offered a place. Ironically, since I dropped out ot school at 15, I'm hoping to become a secondary school teacher. Cannot express how fucking happy and excited I am. New life to look forward to.

Wondering if I should add more labels like paranoid schizophrenic to bi polar disorder ??? Can it be passed off lightly as madness albeit intermittent thankfully.

                                      It's almost as if having a nuanced view of history is wrong in your eyes old boy. Hitler offered Churchill peace in 1940. I dare say England had a choice. Also, I am not revising opinion upwards. I am noting one aspect of a very long and varied life.

                                      None of this, none of it, alters his heinous crimes. But can we see the man in the round? Can we see him as the Home Secretary who allowed the police to sexually brutalise suffragettes outside parliament in 1910? Can we see him as the first lord of the admiralty who oversaw the disaster of Gallipoli? Can we see him as responsible for the Black and Tans and the atrocities they committed during his time in the War Office? Can we evaluate his role in the creation and worsening of the Bengal Famine? Can we do all of that through the lens of his deep and powerful racism and imperialism? Yes. Yes we can.

                                      We can do all of those things and more besides (listing his crimes would take too long) but that doesn't mean we cannot acknowledge other aspects of his life also. That doesn't excuse his crimes. It could not. But you've come to the wrong place if you're asking me to spout simple slogans about historical figures without even the slightest ability to address, assess and accept the various strands of their lives. That's just the sort of nonsense that leads to idiots surrounding statues of Churchill to protect it while making Nazi signs and singing "two world wars and one world cup". I've no time for that level of historical analysis. It's asinine.

                                            I don't think anyone thinks Churchill made a bad job of WW2 really do they? The context of all this is trolling LAD Brits who don't know he was a cunt

                                                Hitler and his Generals made blunders that made ol soundbite Churchill look a lot better than he really was. They were on the brink post 1940 . I'm also casting doubt on his prowess which in my view is greatly exaggerated.
