Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week July 17, 2016Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
Sheer nonsense this week from a certain prominent columnist
My few bob on Portugal was based not on football form, but on two traits in the Portuguese national character which I admire greatly for two reasons.
First, the Duke of Wellington, not easily impressed, praised the stoic character of Portuguese troops under fire.
Second, thanks to the dictatorial Salazar, Portugal was one of the few countries to reject anti-Semitism at a time when European democracies were willingly rounding up Jews.
Say what now?
