    Politician 1, date A: “Feel good rhetoric”
    Politician 2, date B: “Feel good rhetoric”

    You’d hardly expect two politicians seeking office to say anything different Would you?. Even if it something that has never happened AND never will or can

    Given that class is the major divider in Britain, similar words mean something quite different (although still good) in the US, where few people recognise anyother class than the “middle class” and distinctions such as region vs region, state vs state, and above all race, play a much great role in political like and thought.

We must honour those who still today share their experiences with the rest of us. And we must educate each coming generation about the realities of the Holocaust, as direct memories fade and our enemies seek to distort […]
