second opinion - VE day
WORKERS, MAY 2005 ISSUE
The 60th anniversary of the victory in Europe of the Allied Powers over Nazism and Fascism falls on 9 May. It is to the honour of the British Legion that they have commissioned their Victory and Freedom remembrance campaign to run throughout the General Election campaign.
This is a timely reminder of what Nazism and Fascism represented and who actually defeated them - the peoples of Europe and above all the armed forces of the Soviet Union. It is a timely reminder because it puts into context neo-Nazi crackpots and those who thrive off them, the self-styled left, now shattered irrelevancies from another era.
