The UK's War Debt to America
Posted by N44 on August 31, 2021, 19:37:06
The other day I heard the UK paid our final payment of £45.5 million pounds to clear our WW2 loan from our friends the Americans
Then I heard that in 1953 Europe chopped Germany's war debt from 30 billion Deutchmarks to 15 billion.
How generous was that, yet they started 2 wars.
As we discussed recently the UK scrapped the debt Germany owed us not may years ago.
How soft we are here in the UK?
