What makes the British approach to World War 2 unique is that it is much more a central component of national identity than in any country which wasn’t occupied.

The secretive and brutal deportation regime was dealt a body blow in the night of 28 March 2017 at Stansted airport by 15 people from 3 groups. In a well-rehearsed operation, they cut through the perimeter fence and locked on round the undercarriage of an aircraft and immobilised it. The plane was being prepared on the tarmac apron some distance from the runway for a deportation flight to Nigeria and Ghana. The demonstators remained in position for 10 hours in the rain.
