Comeback of the year

 On Twitter this morning:

"The Nazi ‘Black Book’ listing people to be liquidated and institutions likely to provide most resistance post invasion. Hard to believe now but top of the list was the CofE.

When it was found, Rebecca West wrote to Noel Coward ‘My dear, the people we’d have been seen dead with!’"

Among the replies:

"Not hard to believe at all: against the combined forces of a disgruntled Choir, the Flower Guild and the Mothers' Union, even the Third Reich would have started to wobble."

(Wealands Bell)
