It is the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Sky News are showing a program with some of the stories of those who are still alive recalling their experiences. They are all around 97. Brave men, but what is so apparent is that they had absolutely no hesitation in fighting for Britain. Even though the chances of being shot down were so high. http://news.sky.com/story/1516383/battle-of-britain-told-by-those-who-fought-it Which brings me to thinking that in today's world attitudes seem very different. I would hope that British people would still fight but we have certainly seen splits in the country. Members of our armed forces have been attacked, are careful about wearing the uniform in public and some of the protests during repatriations at Wootton Basset have been disgraceful. These days we see so many migrants.. Why? It seems no one wants to stay and fight for their country any more. Yes I know know civil wars are complicated but just look what happened with the Iraqi army. There was zero patriotism to stand their ground and fight against ISIS. They ran and left their arms. Country meant very little. Same with Syria. That is being fought by many foreigners, and so many Syrians have just left. Moving to Africa. The Nigerian armed forces were not interested in fighting Boko Haram. (the school girls are still missing) but the country is falling to Islamists. The government is paying foreign forces to battle against Boko Haram, but with bombings every day, the north will soon be lost. The peoples option just like Syria, Iraq and so many other countries is to leave and look for a new life in new country. No one seems to fight for the country anymore Maybe the patriotism seen in the Battle of Britain is something from a bygone age?
