A merry Christmas to all my readers, For the older ones who remember, I would like to play a video made by one of the best American friends Britain every had in the second world war, a certain Mr Quentin Reynolds. For my younger readers, I want you to watch it and know that those who write us off may be making the biggest mistake of their lives.

Wikipedia says of him:
Quentin James Reynolds (April 11, 1902, New York City – March 17, 1965, San Francisco, California) was a journalist and World War II war correspondent.
As associate editor at Collier’s Weekly from 1933 to 1945, Reynolds averaged twenty articles a year. He also published twenty-five books, including The Wounded Don’t Cry, London Diary, Dress Rehearsal, and Courtroom,
His video despatches back to America may not have been responsible for American answering our bugle call but when they did, I am sure the memory of his despatches persuaded the common people that we were “worth saving”.
We may be cowered by ideology, by Political Correctness, Health and Safety, and all the other weapons our ruling class operate to cower us and subject us, but they will never kill our spirit and when a leader finally surfaces, we will follow them and do what needs to be done.
You can learn more about the British spirit at the National Archives.
And finally, if you liked the last video, here is another from the same stable.
