Funny I learned something on a doco about WWII last night that Manila suffered the most damage of any city during the war after Warsaw. Never expected that.
Yes, I've seen that too about Manila.
It could be that they are talking about damage during the actual battle.

Whereas while Warsaw was extremely badly damaged during battle, when the battle was over Hitler then sent in demolition teams to level it to the ground. As that program I mentioned said, Warsaw was rebuilt after the war, often using postcards as their guide in the rebuilding.

...and then add how Nanking was treated. Or Dresden (very interesting description in Churchill's' diary - 20 volumes long).

Euro has become polarised with the Greens taking a lead in Germany. France also going right to Le Pen

Check out the result for UK Euro election..... thumping win for Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party.
Most seats Yes, but the country is just as divided.

From one article I read:
Remain parties: 40.3%
Hard Brexit parties: 34.9%
Conservatives/Labour: 23.2% (viewed as generally soft Brexit)

I think the pundits are calling the split 52-48 for leaving.... which is the same as 3 years ago.

Interesting article by Stan Grant on the ABC website:

Stan Grant writes an entire article missing the point entirely.

He does say "People who have seen their factories close down, their jobs lost, who feel displaced in their own countries are listening and they like what they hear. "
which is indeed the main point. But he doesn't say or recognise that the point occurs as the absolute direct result of the globalism.

Power and money goes to the financial class in the capital cities, and workers and farmers in regional and rural areas are expected to sit back and enjoy seeing their wealth and jobs being exported overseas to make the financial class richer. Condemned to live in fly-over areas, and snickered at by the ruling elite.

On a more basic level, under the previous Italian Government, we were in Italy four years ago living near Padova, where the Globalist agenda was in full swing. The Mayor of Padova was on TV saying that the national government had just allocated 7000 illegal migrants to be housed in his parkland, and that he was supposed to look after them - as well as an additional 5000 undocumented illegal migrants roaming the streets of his city. He didn't know what to do.

The Italians then voted in two nationalist/populist parties. Salvini had promised to stop illegal immigration, and many I knew over where sceptical - having heard countless broken election promises before. But Salvini reduced illegal immigration by over 99% almost immediately. Plainly, the previous government could have done the same thing, but chose not to do so for the greater world good.

Only a minority is going to vote Globalist in Italy, when the Nationalists are putting the local citizens first. But Stan Grant would see that informed self-interest as xenophobia, racism, sectarianism and tribalism.

Renato
