In the 19th century the very British game of rugby football was adopted successfully throughout her Dominions; by 1906, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa were regularly beating us at our own game. In the years preceding the First World War, rugby tried to conquer territories closer to home with expeditionary forays into Continental Europe.

Hans Feibusch is the last of Hitler's Degenerate Artists. The last survivor. It must feel funny to be 'the last' of a group, simply because you're still alive. The degenerates were the collection of German artists - otherwise unconnected to each-other - who were named and shamed, exiled and imprisoned, because their art was defined 'contrary to the public good' by the Third Reich.

It is always dangerous to draw direct political parallels of course and Karl Marx himself recognised this when he said that history does indeed repeat itself; the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. This time maybe we have to say that history is again repeating itself; this time as Farage.

Gabriel Webber | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Politics

Anything that forces people to think twice before resorting to the laziest, least free form of 'free' speech that is the default knee-jerk Nazi comparison has to be a positive innovation. A properly-legislated version of Godwin's Law would only give more power to humanity's exercise of freedom of expression.

Endeavour Press

My book about Rudolph Hess is largely based on unofficial archives researched and collected by historians and conspiracy buffs in Britain, Germany, America and Central Europe.
