It’s been a bit of a while since my last Daily Mail Story of the Week – so long a while that the feature should perhaps be renamed Daily Mail Nazi Story of the six weeks and five days. Give or take a few days. This is not for the lack of silly stories about […]
It has been a long, long while since I last posted. OK, I have been extremely busy: work, my German football website, the ongoing Michael Wittmann project… Sometimes it feels as though there aren’t enough hours to fill the day. Then there iare the usual issues encountered by any writer: far too many stories to […]
Much has been said about the journalistic profession, and how the quality of both writing and research has plummeted ever since online media started to outflank the printed press. While more scurrilous types could always be found in the murky offices of the red tops, much of what you found in the so-called quality press […]
And so, it came to an end – stifled by a scarily impressive Spanish side that pulled yet another trick out of its impressive bag by swinging in a very old-fashioned corner and having their old-fashioned centre-back smash in an old-fashioned header.

Back and more bizarre than ever, it’s the Daily Mail Nazi Story of the Week, with today’s instalment giving us a curious insight into the murky world of Holocaust memorabilia and ephemera. That’s right – dolls from Auschwitz, yellow stars, identity documents, fake “human fat” soap – it’s all here.
England’s bid to host the football World Cup in 2018. It should be simple, shouldn’t it? This country now has a collection of international-standard stadiums, an infrastructure that while not perfect is way ahead of many of its potential rivals, and an enthusiasm for the game that is second to none. Then there is the […]
The dramatic political events have had me posting like crazy, but there’s still time for the Daily Mail Nazi Story of the Week – have no fear, Der Führer’s here! Last week’s instalment came came right at the last minute, but we’re comfortably on time with this our latest silly instalment.

Not the case, it seems – for just in time […]
