Re: Today the 6th June was D Day 74 years ago
After WW2, While we had a great financial debt to America, that we had to pay back. The Germans were given millions of pounds from America. It was called the Marshall Plan, named after the American General, I assume who was in charge of implementing it. It is not so different now. I remember quite a few years ago a friend who moved to live in Greece, was telling us about the fantastic new roads that were built with EU cash. We always have to pay more into the EU than we get back. The roads in Oxfordshire are dreadful but we have just returned from Devon and the roads there are just the same, loads of pot holes.
