Image, When the invasion began, the British public was called upon to ‘support’

When the invasion began, the British public was called upon to ‘support’ troops sent illegally and undemocratically to kill people with whom we had no quarrel. ‘The ultimate test of our professionalism’ is how Commander McKendrick describes an unprovoked attack on a nation with no submarines, no navy and no air force, and now with no clean water and no electricity and, in many hospitals, no anaesthetic with which to amputate small limbs shredded by shrapnel. I have seen elsewhere how this is done, with a gag in the patient’s mouth.
