Despite leaders such as Angela Merkel and Gordon Brown pretending that there's something nice and wholesome about a united Germany, hundreds of millions of British and European people had less fond feelings about what the press is trying to make out as good old peace-loving Deutschland.
'Bunch of Krauts!', a certain Major McGowan said from his hotel in Torquay, 'bunch of goosestepping, Nazi, warmongering, mass-murdering bastards! The Russians had the right idea about them - put another Wall up, I say!'
And Mrs. Dorothy English added: 'My city was bombed for six years by the Germans, thousands were killed by them, and millions more were murdered in their death camps across Eastern Europe. And the news - in Britain! - is reporting it as 'good' that the Berlin Wall came down. Unbelievable!'
But not all were unhappy about commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall, and one, a Mr. Adolf Hitler, had this to say about the anniversary. 'All my life I dreamed of a united Germany, a Greater Reich of the master race ruling a single European state from Berlin - and now it's happened!'
'And how I laugh to see Herren Brown and Sarkozy coming here to the capital of the Reich to grovel and lick the boots of the German people. I said I would found a Reich that would last a thousand years, and so far it's all going to plan!'
'We have the Swiss banks on our side, the Russians have become feeble, and as for the British, they've become a spineless joke, running around in circles to please the Americans. At least when that alcoholic fool Churchill was their leader they had guts, now look at them!'
Next year will see the sixty-fifth anniversary of Britain giving up its independence in 1945, and becoming a once proud nation that now does whatever Berlin or Washington tells it to. The lion has not only lost its claws, it's lost most of its teeth too. But unlike their German friends no matter how bad things get the British will never support the vile BNP, or whatever they call themselves next week.
And the British don't need a Wall - Hadrian tried that idea a few years ago, but the British took two minutes to work out that a few boats can get round it. Hadrian's Wall was basically an exercise in propaganda, as was the one in Berlin.
But a BBC News story warning what has always happened every time Germany has united and armed itself would be a little more relevant than 'celebrating' reuniting the most evil country in human history, one that practiced genocide on an almost industrial scale across Europe.
But then again a television company that gives a fascist politician a one hour advertisement dressed up as a discussion programme is hardly likely to mention the War, is it? The BBC might have mentioned the War once this week, but I think they got away with it. Eva Praun salad, anyone?
