I have always liked and admired Sir Patrick Moore. He has always exhibited the best of the traits which make up an Englishman, and at the top of the list is the truth that he has always spoken his mind. So when he states that “A Kraut is a Kraut is a Kraut” he knoweth of what he speaks. That phrase, born of the loss of his fiance during the dark days of the Blitz, fashioned the iron in his soul, an iron which has hardly rusted despite his nearly ninety years of life.
I wouldn’t use the same words as Sir Patrick, I would use far stronger words; for when you read of the machinations of German politicians within Europe, when one reads of the plotting behind the scenes to marginalise their opposition in both their National Parliament as well as within Europe; when one reads of the aims within Germany to get their way in European matters monetary, economic and political, I wonder if we should not have gone on, in the words of another of my heroes, to finish the job properly!
