1666; The Great Fire of London began in a baker's shop in Pudding Lane, and rapidly spread throughout the city, destroying most of London's buildings and houses.
Although 13,000 buildings were destroyed in the four-day blaze only six people died.
It was not until 1710 that insurance companies maintained fire engines - if you didn't; have a plaque on the wall the 'firemen wouldn't put out the fire.
If one was lucky; the volunteers turned up later - fire is known to spread
The fire service was nationalised in 1947.

Highgate claimed that he was a 'straggler' trying to find his way back to rejoin his regiment after having been separated from his comrades.
His execution was almost as hasty as his trial, as senior officers insisted that he be executed 'At once, as publicly as possible'.

1944; World War II: The British submarine HMS Tradewind torpedoed Junyō Maru, a Japanese cargo ship used to transport prisoners.
It was the world's greatest sea disaster at the time with 5,620 dead.
723 survivors were rescued, only to be put to work in conditions similar to those of the Burma Railway where death was commonplace.
The japanese nation state was as bad as the germans...
When man starts killing man - and, now women are allowed in the game - the truth is the first thing to be jettisoned to make the load lighter...
Are you a holocaust denier!
Do you believe that the first modern generation of Scottish immigrants had nothing to do with the Ku Klux Clan.
Do you believe that the British Empire had nowt to do with slavery; and,
The good old British squaddie wasn't a guard around the first concentration camp on this warming up planet.
Do you really want to be in a 'lets hang on to what we got - now the greedy gits have got it' gang GOSH
Greece has a greater guns to butter ratio than the UK at the moment - it is a form of employing humans
The UK has gone down the Nuclear route - it requires less humans...
Has one noticed that it is now more common for the lead economy of the EU (yes; them germans) to not do as well now that the leavers are in power.
I am not up to date with the ups and downs of various nation states and never have been!
However; I am aware that over time a good biggun beats a good little one
A nation state that makes things and employs - as opposed to using em - more people; will be better off over time

1839; Birth of George Cadbury, the chocolate manufacturer.
A Quaker, he believed in taking care of the welfare of his workforce, and he created a model village for his employees at Bournville, Birmingham.
1851; Birth of William Hesketh Lever. He changed the process of soap manufacture by using vegetable oils instead of tallow. Like George Cadbury he cared about the welfare of his workers, and established the new town of Port Sunlight Merseyside, to house them.
Good cop, bad cop; good pleb,bad pleb; good owner, bad owner.
Is an english owner better than a 'foreign owner - both organisations to make profit are now a part of a group, owned by 'foreigners.
Is nationalisation the answer - a form of, I reckon so; you can't turn back time; for the good of the country.

1946; The Council of Europe was founded following a speech by Winston Churchill at the University of Zurich.
It promotes co-operation between all countries of Europe in the areas of legal standards, human rights, democratic development, the rule of law and cultural co-operation.
Having lived in and travelled extensively in Europe; we are all becoming the same.
Has being a member of the EU accelerated the rate of change!
It more than likely has; despite the gap being a mere 21 miles.
My heart is with the leavers but, my head is with the remainers.
Taking everthing into account - not least climate change - I have no far flung relations; nor am I a fan of the banking and services community; change should come from within the EU.

1952; The United States prevented the English born film legend Charlie Chaplin from returning to his Hollywood home until he was investigated by the Immigration Services.
Chaplin made it good in america from a poor start in England...
A classical example of the humans of the land of the brave and free persecuting someone with differing views.

The nation state of Greece has seen much change recently.
Is marginally electing a right wing government a must to be a member of the EU!
I think (know) not...
