    Is it any wonder given Merkel’s leadership ❓

    There will be a lot of Germans seeking a solution to the Muslim Question…..

    I once saw it described as ‘a rambling, tedious book written in bad German’. It eventually made him a millionaire. Probably helped having a captive readership though.

      I Googled “Who gets royalties Mein Kampf reprints”

      An interesting read.

        Yes, a very interesting read indeed, Gezza ❗

        And do you know, that until now, I had absolutely NO idea that ‘Nazi’ was the Swahili word for ‘coconut’.

          I found it very dull, it’s repetitive, contradicts itself and is very badly written, It’s the sort of book where one’s mind switches off, How anyone can plough through this is a mystery, and the original readers didn’t have to, they loved it and swarmed around the writer (if one can dignify him with that name)’

          Read at your own risk. I’d like to know how many people read every word of this drivel/

    The dog on ‘Yeah, good luck with that !’ has a clone in my street. Even the grin, that I took for granted had been enhanced for comic effect, is the same. Fido gave a few barks as I passed, then grinned at me-I have never seen anything so funny 😀 He must wonder why people react as they must do to this.
