It gave me an uneasy feeling in my stomach. Some of the rudest fans Ive been around as well. We literally had someone grab the arm of someone in our group doing "the chop" and told them to stop because "thats racist". I almost lost it a few times that day. Never again!
Should ve happened from day one!
Note for readers of the Mail, Express and Sun. Today is VE day. A day when we commemorate the lost souls of the combined allied forces who gave their lives to end the war in Europe and deliver a lasting peace. A peace underpinned by the EU for many decades since.

Its odd that the Daily Mail is so enthusiastic about celebrating the anniversary of VE day, considering their side lost.
AKS Reception More creative castles have been created to go with the Jack and the Beanstalk story. I think both these brilliant castles will be played with many times by the children during lockdown. Meanwhile, Henry helped his dad to put up their VE Day bunting.

HAPPY VE DAY.
Only Her Majesty can make VE day real to the nation. We thank our Queen for giving leadership and a lifetime of service.
Im in my 50s, and I dont recall any substantial VE Day celebrations before. Have I been missing something? Whats changed? I note that one characteristic of a fascist society is pervasive militarism.
A perfect finish to VE Day. How beautiful! @ Gong Man of London Arun Lotay.
May 8, 1945 - Today is the 75th anniversary of VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, and commemorates the end of the Second World War in Europe. More than 1,000,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders served in the SWW, and more than 45,000 gave their lives.
VE Day is a good moment to remember that our country stood as one to fight for democracy & freedom. Patriotism & belief in our country was universal. It saddens me that so many today shrink from a love of country. This should be a common bond - left or right.
It s VE Day and I tell you you will not hold me under house arrest. I will fight you on the park bench, I will fight you with a picnic blanket, I shall sunbath if I fancy it. I shall never surrender.

This week we have been learning about VE Day. Today we marked the 75th anniversary by decorating the garden with bunting and Union Jacks and having a picnic in the garden. Thank you to the cook for preparing such a delicious feast.
I ve followed 5-6 different sports before and I must say in no fandom I saw people judge skaters so much from their positive PR rather than from what they do on ice. At the end of the day it doesn t matter how much you say you re working on smth if the results don t show on ice.
You know what, I m tired of this. I ve had such a difficult day and I m at the end of my tether. So yeah, I did it. I turned my penis into a pickle Morty, it s a pickle dick. Funniest shit I ve ever seen.
We ve endured the most for the longest and still targeted to this day. Transatlantic slave trade. Middle passage. Slavery. Jim Crow. Tulsa Massacre. Tuskegee Study. Mass incarceration. Police Brutality. Biggest crimes against humanity for literal hundreds of years. Yet. Nothing.
On this anniversary of VE day, I remember everything that our British allies endured during WWII--the blackouts, food rations, sending their children to the country. These people should be ashamed of their selfish entitled selves. But, fine, dont go to Costco.
"Our streets are not empty, they are full of the love and care we have for each other". Powerful, poignant message from the Queen as our country comes together to mark VE Day.
goblin sharts is maybe the funniest thing i ve read all day.
Thank you for all the lovely messages. An honour, as always, to be part of VE Day 75. But the driving forces behind it were Claire Popplewell, Kate Shiers and Rosheen Archer who worked their socks off to get The People s Celebration on air.
Today marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the Second World War in Europe. On this day millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace, mourn their loved ones, and to hope for the future.
On VE Day, its important we remember that Nazis are bad and that is not disputable. They arent to be debated or tolerated, but reminded that Nazis are scum. Europe won World War II. The world won World War II.
Im working in a hospital as as porter and nearly every day weve had food sent in by the Somalian community, local Indian takeaways, Hungarian food, but funnily enough, f**k all from the BNP, Brexit party or UKIP.
stuck with u recompiled lil moments of every live they ve been doing during quarantine. til the day we can meet each other .
Happy VE Day. The sacrifice was one we will never see again. The victory assured liberty for all generations to come. We should always defend it.

Just a reminder to all the supporting idiots on Twitter. Tomorrow, well be celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE Day . VE stands for Victory in Europe, not Victory over Europe as some of these idiots have suggested. Europe is our friend, not our enemy!

have i missed something? never before have i seen a street party for VE day, and you ve all decided that THIS is the year, 2020, to start??
got the tone of the evening bulletin just right as usual. Coronavirus first and then VE Day as opposed to who took a long time to get to the most important issue of the day. Well it felt like it! .
What REALLY offends me is the Tory press lauding the generation who fought WW2, yet this terrible Tory Government removed this generation from our hospitals, UNTESTED, then sent them back to Care Homes, UNTESTED, to die!
Haven t celebrated VE Day today. Instead I thought about my grandad, the son of an Estonian immigrant, who could never talk about WWII due to having watched his best friend be shot to pieces next to him in the North African desert and seen the horrors of the holocaust. 1/.

Ive only had one game actually make me feel barfy. Here They Lie had this hallway that stretched and twisted and it just fucked me up for the rest of the day. even after I took the VR off my stomach was all messed up.
On VE Day I remember my Grandad Was invalided out of the war after a gas-gasmask training exercise went horribly wrong Yet still despite his severe almost-fatal injuries, he worked painfully, quietly to support his family for 35 years Not everyone was a VC but many were heroes.
How do you have a call with President Putin on VE Day and not even mention the fact that his government continues war and occupation on the continent of Europe to this very day? Utterly dishonourable.

I absolutely cannot imagine what this day must ve felt like in 1945. For my grandmas, both knowing their husbands were coming home. For my Grandads, one returning from northern France and one who d become a miner. For my great uncle, who d been at the liberation of.
