At long last the BBC airs the smug incompetence of Mountbatten
What has yet to be fully described, explained or debated for the wider British public, as far as I am aware, was the part played in World War I by the German warships Goeben and Breslau, while Lord Louis Mountbatten's father, the German, Prince Louis of Battenberg, was Britain's First Sea Lord.
This naval escape was described by Winston Churchill as bringing "more slaughter, more misery, and more ruin than has ever before been borne within the compass of a ship." The Gallipoli landings which caused such slaughter amongst our Australian and New Zealand compatriots can unarguably have been caused by that event.
Altogether then a disastrous family record for the Battenberg/Mountbatten families, one which should give those living in our former dominians considerable anguish as our present foreign policy drives Britain ever further under German control. All in complete and blatant betrayal of the sacrifices of the peoples of our islands endured down the centuries.
