The TV was covered by programmes about VE Day. Can’t see what is special about 70 years from the war (surely 50 years or 75 should be the markers) but anyway, there we were. I flicked between two programmes, one about the factory that made bombers and the men that flew them, and another about the effects of the bombing of Germany on the civilian population. The contrast was telling. Anarchists used to say that a bayonet was a weapon with a worker at both ends, and so, just war or not, was a Wellington bomber.
