Hitler, Nazism and the threat/promise of WWIII are constant themes in Britain
His granny set the fashion as a young’un
Nowadays you’re nobody as a politician unless you embrace your inner Nazi.
Labour politicians are being tarred with anti-Semitism.
Two years before Naz Shah was elected Labour MP she posted about transporting Israel to the USA
Former Lord Mayor of London “Red” Ken Livingstone voiced his thoughts on radio:

WWIII is on the way!
The Prime Minister warns ‘Vote No To Brexit Or Face World War 3′
Leading Brexit campaigner, another former Lord Mayor of London,
And here’s what Boris Johnson’s imaginary 4th Reich thinks of the Brexit Referendum
Last but not least, not content with starting opposition in the Stormont Assembly, our very own
Mike Nesbit makes a ham-fisted attempt to get on the bandwagon
“But hey, propaganda worked for Hitler, for a while.”
Comment: So that’s OK then, is it?
Facts: WWII ended over 60+ years ago.
The EU was conceived and set up to ensure peace in Europe after centuries of conflict.
Comment: Like the inevitable marching trooops on every conceivable occasion,
with the Royal Family
playing lead roles, Nazism and WWII recur regularly as memes in British political discourse.
They all serve to reinforce the mythical status of Britain’s role in war.
They provide the British public with the childish reassurance of “being right” because the heroes of these British fantasies always won.
Appealing to the war myth divides people into “them and us” and issues into simplistic “Yes or No” votes.
Remember: A lie, repeated a thousand times, becomes a truth
