  1. Mutlet's role in the history of Nazism...
    David Irving should be told.

    I got 5 wrong 10. I forgot about Scheswig Holstein and Brunswick.

  2. Eight out of ten.

    Have incinerated my brown shirt...

  3. Mutley does not appear to ahve read the post.

    Well done, Ubergruppen Fuehrer David.

  4. I thank my family, my agent and, above all, Ian Kershaw whose biography of the Austrian Corporal I read about a year ago.

    As for my new rank, presumably I get to reach for my revolver whenever I hear the word "culture"? It'll be carnage here next month during the Edinburgh Festival...

  5. Too many things get posted here that posts roll down the list really quickly - also the Jews who run my company have been making me work - the swines... Oooopps!

    Actually I did meet David Irving once - it struck me that he was really enjoying being notorious..

    I am off to annexe the Sudetenland - anyone care to join me??

  6. With you, Mutley, it could be quite fun. We'll take David F and Crushed with us.
