The Liverpool Blitz

This week's media coverage of the 70th anniversary of the Blitz has, inevitably, focused on the events held in London. As my parents & grandparents always maintained, it could be argued that the Port of Liverpool was an even greater target for Hitler's Luftwaffe because of its strategic position in relation to the North Atlantic convoys.
Peter Sissons, Liverpool-born & bred (he attended the same school as Lennon), looked at the largely unreported effects of the Blitz on Merseyside during 1940/41 for a BBC Radio 4 piece on Monday ( ).

We need to remind ourselves that the war happened outside London too, I think. Actually, we should not forget that English history in general also happened outside London.

We need to remind ourselves that the Fib-Dems under Mike Storey and his puppet Bradley did more architectural damage than the Luftwaffe.
