back to article Hitler ordered Luftwaffe to spare Blackpool

The reason Hitler didn't do the decent thing and order his Luftwaffe to reduce Blackpool to smouldering rubble has now been revealed: The Fuhrer wanted the resort as his "personal playground", as the Daily Mail puts it. Adolf's chilling plan to watch triumphant troops goosestep down the Golden Mile before hoisting a swastika …

Everybody loves Blackpool

It wasn't just Hitler, Soviet Russia intended to invade via Blackpool as well. It turns out the Golden Mile is just what's needed for a sea-bourne assault and all those B&B would be ideal for garrisoning the invading soldiers.

Frankly I think they're all welcome to it.

paris?

so Hitler wanted to destroy the Parisien bridges, but spare Blackpool? He was way more unhinged than we thought!

Paris, cos if he'd destroyed her, he might have redeemed himself somewhat.

Adolf was one of the knotted hanky types who wanted "kiss me quick" hats and shorts with plastic buttocks on the back ?

Thank god we won.

How long before some yank claims national credit for saving us from this fate? ;o)

The Golden Mile

The reason it's called the Golden Mile is because it's streaming with piss!

Blimey!

I can only assume this was at a time before they started pumping raw sewage into the sea, and started building row-upon-row or oh so delightful trinket shops? I can how it could work though - the place is like a concentration camp anyway.

And to all those people from Blackpool who are going to complain - It's a dump. Accept it.

Cardiff has some way to go before it plumbs the same depths as Slough...

Or Wolverhampton. Jumped up dump of a town pretentiously calling itself a City when it doesn't even have a cathedral! OK, so the church where the Wolves started out is nice enough, but a cathedral it isn't...

Apparently he wanted Rochdale town hall...

...taken apart and shipped back to Germany. as well. He was a closet pie-eater basically.

Blackpool isn't irredeemably shit, it just attracts a lot of people who think they can behave like arseholes just because it's Blackpool. You could say that about anywhere where they allow lots of British people to get horribly drunk.

Seaside for Hitler, and Germany

If Goebbels had opened up a greasy spoon on the promenade, he'd have called it

"The Master Taste"

Are you sure they would have fought on our side?

No noise, no coming back late, regulation breakfasts, no running baths outside of hours - sounds like a bunch of fascistic fifth columnists to me.

Almost all of them justified, But I never knew that blackpool being such a sh!thole was one of them.

Maybe someone could create a new one with Blackpool as the theme....

B&B in Blackpool

Having been on holiday there once, I think Hitler would have been entirely at home in Blackpool. Very good idea of his to settle there, though he may have found the views of some of the B&B proprietors a bit extreme

@Daily Mail

It is not surprising that the Mail paints Hitler as "almost eccentric and cuddly"; they supported Hitler right up until the 1938 invasion of Prague by the Nazis. Rothermire (the owner) expressing the hope that 'Adolf the Great' would become a popular figure in Britain, (from Wikipedia) and wrote an article entitled: "Hurrah for the Blackshirts," in January, 1934.

Love it. Can I come and work with you lot? It would make my days everso more interesting.

I'm good at making tea and everything... I'll even buy the biscuits. My only demand would be that you seat me well away from that "Ms Bee" as she's just a bit odd and I wouldn't want, by process of osmosis - to catch whatever mental disease she has.

Thanks.

It could explain why the owners of Blackpool pleasure beach tried to call a new coaster 'The Zyklon Loop' a few years ago...

Oh, Ms Bee, most disappointed,although I can see the attraction of Fox's crinkle thingies I had you down as a chocolate hob nob kind of girl.

Re: Oh we do like to be beside the Sieg Heil!

And you give very good subhead too, Ms Bee. Sehr gut. I, for one, celebrate the Register as an environment where punerasts and double-entendrists are permitted, nay encouraged, to express themselves without shame and free from the discrimination and abuse they suffer in the rest of society.

I can't help thinking that a donkey ride on the beach might have seemed a bit tame after waging blitzkrieg across Europe.

Oh do shut up. The worst bit of Britain is that bit where Brits have gathered in any numbers to live. The rest is OK. I was always happiest sitting on top of Bleaklow with not a human being anywhere in sight.

Hell is other people ?

Have to agree a little tho, peace is only attained at 11pm on a summers evening above 2000ft in the Lake district mountains in my case. If only I could ship the bloody noisy sheep off to Blackpool where they belong ....
