As David Davis dickers like a dodgy chandelier in a hurricane over May’s so called Brexit deal that is really no deal at all, there were encouraging words from Brexit Minister Steve Baker.

Surely this is the final nail in the coffin of intellectually challenged Jeremy Corbyn? YouGov reports that the Tories now have a narrow lead over Labour. Jezza seem to have a lot of time on his hand lately, spending time at teenage gigs and appearing on lightweight TV shows. But the strategy of getting down with the kids is one that seems to have been his undoing.

The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Adolf Hitler‘s Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe.

From 1941 to 1945, Germany targeted European Jewry for extermination as part of a larger event that included the persecution and murder of other groups. A broader definition of the Holocaust includes the murder of the Roma and the “incurably sick”. A broader definition still includes ethnic Poles, other Slavic groups, Soviet citizens and prisoners of war, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, black people, and political opponents. Continue reading
