    Default Tag der Deutschen Einheit

    Work free day almost over ;(

    Today Germany is celebrating tearing down walls. Somewhat ironic as Britain is now intent on building them.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Britain doesn't need to build any walls (except perhaps for improving upon that which Hadrian started ) because we have a minimum 22 miles of ocean to keep the unwanted hordes at bay. The barbed-wire fences that have been popping up across Europe don't count as "walls" in your world, I presume?

    Lord Haw-Haw - Wikipedia

    Though we could describe him as a Scottish nationalist and that might be enough.

    Scottish nationalists tried to forge Nazi alliance | UK news | The Guardian

    Renegade Scottish nationalists proposed an alliance with Germany in the second world war so as to set up a Scottish republic while England was under attack, documents released yesterday by the public record office reveal.
    The interceptions by British code breakers revealed that communications between the head of the German legation in Dublin and his superiors in Berlin included a memorandum, received on August 15, 1943, from a group known as the Scottish Independent Movement.

    Maybe we should build some walls to keep the Russians, Americans & west Germans out! The EU liked it from 1957 to 1989.

    Evidently not - but then that would imply that not everyone is 100% au fait with the free movement of 100 of thousands of people.

    Who would've thought that.
