Long Term Memory Loss

Prince Harry of England seems to have forgotten the "late unpleasantness" between the United Kingdom and the Third Reich known as World War II. My readers might remember a guy named Winston Churchill (short, fat, bald, seemed to always be smoking a cigar). In one of his famous speeches during that slight disagreement between members of what is now the glorious European Union , he said:

"Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour."

Of course, Winnie was wrong. The British Empire would only last about 20 years from the date of his speech. The Commonwealth does still exist in some atrophied vestigial form, but at least one drunken twit of its ruling family seems to have forgotten all about its history. Some Jewish group has suggested that Harry the Twit be sent to Auschwitz for a history lesson. I disgree. This is not insensitivity to one ethnic group. This is insensitivity to one of the proudest moments in British history and Western civilization. Perhaps he should literally be sent to Coventry...

Sounds a bit unfair on Coventry to me.
