British Apology for Forcible Repatriation
Letters | Toronto Sun | firstname.lastname@example.org | July 15, 1999
PETER WORTHINGTON (Sun, July 13) must be commended for supporting the
crusade of Nikolai Tolstoy to have the British government apologize for the
forcible repatriation of refugees to the tender mercies of Stalin and Tito
immediately after World War II. Perhaps Tony Blair could also apologize for
the indiscriminate bombing of civilian targets carried out by
Butcher-Bomber Harris, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of
thousands of German civilians and refugees. Removal of the statue of Mr.
Harris, which was shamelessly erected in his honour in London several years
ago, would be an appropriate place to start.
