Propoganda efforts fail in the face of British pluck and courage

In the face of the deleterious output of the Nazi propaganda machine, and the flights of fancy of Herr Goebbels following the steadfast actions of our troops in France, actions that saw the Nazi war machine stopped in its literal and metaphorical tracks, the Prime Minister today said this in parliament:

"Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."

And even as he spoke, British industry stepped forth to deliver it's own speech in the best of British traditions where actions speak louder than words:

"We shall never surrender".
