A ReformUK candidate has claimed the UK should have ‘taken Hitler up on his offer of neutrality’ instead of fighting the Nazis


Reform UK's spokesperson has told the BBC that it is “probably true’ that the UK should’ve stayed neutral during WW2

Ffs.

It's just "inconvenient truths" and no endorsement, mate.

Glad Reform are up to date and have their finger on the pulse.

Obviously what is important to Reform in the 2024 general election is what Parliament decided in 1939.
There were no shortage of volunteers in 1939 or people choosing to join the armed forces in previous few years.

Would we have stayed neutral after USA entered the war?

Had we stayed out of WW 1 would there have even been WW 2?

Had we stayed out of Stamford Bridge then we could have beat the French on the South coast and still be speaking German.

Obviously very important for a election in 2024.

The old contemptibles,...

If we didn't have an empire we could have remained neutral in WW1...

Clearly right to defeat Hitler.

Germany seemingly going very right wing again.

Can't deal with the EU, but happy to sit down with Hitler.

Okey doke.

Was the Kaiser a threat to the Empire, donny? Not sure about that. The plan was a quick knock out of France to leave the way clear to an attack on Russia, the real objective.

In the run up to the invasion of Ukraine, he praised President Putin, writing in January 2022 that he had "shown a maturity of which we can only dream of".
He "understands the bonds that create more stable societies; the hypocrisy of the West is preposterous as we stare in the face daily the enormous economic equalities created by our deluded neo liberal ideas", he wrote.
In February, Mr Gribbin wrote "if only the West had politicians of his class".


Figures. Also seems to have a problem or two with women.

If only there had been enough offence archeology in regards to Hitler to make his real views and intentions more known.Sad

Or regarding Putin and his essays about his imperialist ambitions.

And in Gribbin's case it's not like it were comments of a a foolish and edgy 18 year old that are now dug up when he's 80. It's quite recent stuff.
Report edy June 10, 2024 3:42 PM BST
Instead of having to engage the comments made, instead there's a deflection and blaming of those that uncover the potentially somewhat suboptimal views on women and their role in society.
Report edy June 10, 2024 3:55 PM BST
Just say it was some classic British banter instead imo.

These Reform UK people really simply don't understand British culture.
Report Foinavon June 10, 2024 3:59 PM BST
I was only pointing out the comment on the BBC web page hence the inverted commas. I don't endorse the views of this particular candidate. I wonder if he will make it to election day as a candidate.

Yes, I know the offence archeology remark didn't come from you originally.

Yeah! You have no idea how tiresome it can get to always get up at 5am in your holidays to reserve your place in the sun. So much better if it belongs to you without reservation.

The Black Sea coast would have been nice and all that space in between.
