This is the BBC Home Service. Here is the news, read by Alvar Lidell. In the House of Commons today, the Prime Minister, Mr Corbyn, refused to join the chorus of condemnation which has followed repeated German bombing attacks on British towns and cities.

He said there was no conclusive evidence that Herr Hitler was responsible for the Blitz, which he speculated may well have been carried out by rogue elements in the Luftwaffe with the specific intention of damaging the international reputation of the Nazi regime.

Mr Corbyn insisted it was essential to maintain robust dialogue with Berlin and told MPs he was ordering the War Department to return any unexploded bombs to Berlin for further investigation.

Just because they were dropped from German planes, which took off in Germany, and had ‘Made In Germany’ stamped on them, that was no reason to leap to the conclusion that the German government was involved in any way.

The Americans could well be behind it, he suggested, as an excuse to get involved in another European war. There would be no official response from Downing Street until the full facts could be established, he insisted. He said those bellicose Conservatives who wanted to fight the Germans on the beaches, on the landing grounds, in the fields, the streets and the hills, were guilty of reckless provocation against one of our leading European partners.

Britain’s earlier decision to send 300,000 heavily armed soldiers to occupy the pleasure beaches at Dunkirk, without a League of Nations resolution, had only served to heighten tensions and may well be a war crime.

Challenged about German military expansionism, the Prime Minister said Herr Hitler had every right to annex Poland, Czechoslovakia, France, the Low Countries and the Sudetenland, as a vital bulwark against Western aggression.

Earlier, in an interview with the broadcaster Lord Haw-Haw on the wireless station Nazism Today, Mr Corbyn defended his official spokesman, Mr Milne, who had claimed that intelligence reports from MI5, MI6 and the Special Operations Executive were unreliable and ‘problematic’.

Mr Milne also suggested that Herr Hitler might be the victim of a smear campaign by Israel, even though Israel doesn’t actually exist yet. Mr Corbyn has rejected out of hand widespread reports that millions of Jewish men, women and children across Europe are being rounded up by the Nazis. He said that was as absurd as trying to suggest that there was any anti-Semitism in the Labour Party.

The Prime Minister further refused widespread demands to expel German diplomats from the Court of St James’s and intern any German citizens living in Britain. Mr Corbyn said the bombing had ‘nothing to do with Nazism’ and said he had asked Scotland Yard to be on full alert for any backlash against ‘the vast majority of peace-loving Nazis’.

Even as large swathes of Coventry, Plymouth and the East End of London are devastated by the nightly bombardment from the skies, with civilian casualties currently estimated at 50,000, Mr Corbyn vowed there would be no retaliation. He has rejected a proposal from the Royal Air Force to launch 1,000 bomber raids on German cities, and has ordered Spitfire and Hurricane squadrons in the South-East to remain on the ground.

Mr Corbyn is adamant that the young German pilots crossing the Channel from France every day are not enemy combatants and must be considered refugees fleeing conflict and possible torture at the hands of the French Resistance. Any who crash, or are captured, should be treated as asylum seekers and directed immediately to the National Assistance headquarters in Croydon. There will be no shoot-to-kill policy on his watch, Mr Corbyn stated.

The Prime Minister believes that the best way to secure a lasting peace in Europe is by inviting his ‘friend’ Herr Hitler to the Houses of Parliament for a nice cup of tea.

Mr Corbyn blamed the failure of diplomatic efforts thus far to end the bombing on savage spending cuts in the Foreign Office brought in after World War I. He also rejected Conservative calls for the England football team to withdraw from the World Cup in Germany next year, pointing to the successful Berlin Olympic Games in 1936, which proved that politics and sport do mix.

MPs on both sides of the House listened in astonishment to the Prime Minister. Many Labour members, including the former leader Mr Attlee, who is facing deselection by Momentum, were quick to disassociate themselves from Mr Corbyn’s remarks. For the Opposition, Mr Churchill said that if the British Empire lasts for a thousand years — although, at this rate, it will be lucky to last ten minutes — future generations would look at Mr Corbyn and say: this was his Daftest Hour.

Alright, I'll bite. What modern day regime is being compared to the Nazis in this piece of satire?

Think about through for more than a few seconds and the point falls apart.

Lad. We really don't do that sort of greentexting around these parts.

Also, the Mail's crazed imaginings of fantasy scenarios are always worth a read.

It's Corbyn's alleged lack of patriotism over the nerve gas attack.

To be fair, letting Seumas Milne of all people speak to the press about Russia was always going to be a disaster.

why does the daily mail publish so many shit counterfactuals
i mean the fact they're shit i can understand, but surely there's something less nationstates circa 2006 they could do instead.
if it was just richard smallcock i wouldn't bother mentioning it, but they've also done weird nonsense like a Lab/SNP coalition and Corbyn as Prime Minister selling everyone's cats to pay off the IMF.

(A good day to you Sir!)

They use a lot of data science on their website - it pulls many dark tricks.

They do all this stuff because their readers like it.

The threat the Nazis posed in the early 20th C and the threat Russia poses in the modern world isn't remotely comparable. There may be superficial similarities in ideology that people want to pick out, but Germany was one of the most advanced industrial countries in the world. In terms of power, the situation is entirely different.
