now if new york is the most sophistcated place in the u.s of a. then we are [***!!***].. also if you thought people over here lose it when given a uniform (traffic wardens etc not police or army) then you really want to see what happens to a septic put in charge of the metal detectors at the ferry to ellis island...
also i notice that the entrance to the immigration place on ellis island looks shockingly like the entrance to a concentration camp, in fking depresses you just looking at it .. how ironic

See where you're coming from, Canv !

In Dorking, we have Denbies Vineyard, as per photo.

It was originnaly run by a German manager. Now you know why its sometimes referred to as Auschwitz !

Perhaps that's where all the illegals are being transfered to... to press grapes with their blistered and tired feet, after trecking all across Europe to get here!

Still think we should start up a rumour that the British have taken to canibalism...and that we are using asylum seekers to obtain our "special meat"!

That might put them off coming here!

Weird...this year i've been to the Big apple(and ellis island etc) and to Auschwitz. I really like NY but i still think it's overated..
As for Auschwitz it's an amazing place,it moved me in a way that i never thought possible,because to be honest i can be a bit of bloke..but Auschwitz really made me think.

I know where you guts are coming from. I've never been but on Remembrance Sunday the names of all those from our parish who died during the two world wars are read out. I find that quite thought provoking. In those days it would have been a small village parish and there are even a couple of pairs of brothers mentioned.

some great stories in the papers over the last few days of individuals experinces of D-Day.. just read one from a german who spent 9 (nine) hours machine gunning yanks on the beach from the same spot.. got through over 9,000 rounds.. finally fell back after all his platoon had legged it, he got captured a little while later, thanking his lucky stars the yanks hadn't captured him at his post.

Must admit, I haven't had the privilege of visiting Auschwitz.

However, one of my cousins went on a trip there when he was in the forces. He was asleep on the back of the coach after a 'good lunch'

He awoke suddenly with an extremely cold chill running down his back and asked his mate where they were.

"We've just arrived at Auschwitz !" was the reply.

I don't know how true it is, but is said that birds will not sing in the area of the camp, or fly over it !
