Ann Farmer’s thought for today: If Hitler had faced Diane Abbott . . .


Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott was asked four times by Nick Robinson on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme whether Labour would contemplate action after the use of chemical weapons in Syria. In an interview described as ‘a car crash’, she said only that the party would push to ‘bring people to the table’. When pressed again if there was any scenario in which Labour would support the use of force, she replied: ‘The Second World War.’

No doubt Ms Abbott and the present Labour leadership feel that it is better to wait until a war is finished and 70 or so years have elapsed to enable a true judgement to be reached on its historical merit so that they can really be sure that it was a just cause. Sadly for their preferred course of inaction, Hitler would probably have won the Second World War, and none of us would be here to discuss the matter – at least not in English.

Still, never let it be said that the Labour leaders are devoid of patriotism, at least concerning Hitler’s attack on Soviet Russia, on which point their true loyalties swing into action.
