It has finally been revealed that Hitler really was completely bonkers. Secret papers have uncovered that the nutty Nazi wanted to bomb all of Britain except Blackpool. He regarded the resort as the perfect place to establish the new Reich, and also he wanted to ride a donkey whilst wearing a Kiss Me Quick hat.

If the plan had gone ahead we really would have fought them on the beaches.
