EU news: Battle of Britain hero warned EU would ‘succeed where Hitler failed’

RAF pilot Sir Hugh Dowding said in a private letter to Lord Beaverbrook in 1961 that “all the unemployables” of Europe would “invade” Britain if the nation was to join the ECC.

The late Sir Hugh warned the bloc would “succeed where Hitler failed”.

The letter was penned four years after the creation of the ECC, which was then known as the common market and 12 years before Britain joined.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
