Dr Alf is right to be worried but of course the Nazis never went away.

Their sympathisers exist everywhere and at the end of World War II some 250,000 soldiers and sailors plus airmen were supposedly “never accounted for” having decamped to Queen Maude’s land in Antarctica where Doenitz had created a massive underground base which Admiral Byrd leading “Operation Highjump” failed to destroy in 1947 and which was not destroyed in the second attempt in 1957.

Chancellor Merkel, with her refugee policy and laissez faire approach to Muslim troublemakers, has created the conditions for new Nazis to emerge and for those who have been hiding their time to re-emerge and cause new trouble.

AI and automation will destroy more jobs and adding new migrants to a job market already unable to create jobs faster than they are being destroyed will breed more Trumps,  Le Pens , Bossis,  Farages and now this right wing German politician.

These issues have to be thought about and discussed openly otherwise history will repeat itself.

Jeremy Corbyn is what Stalin used to call a “useful fool”,someone who could be tricked into saying or doing almost anything and in Dr Alf’s terms he is also dangerous because he never considers how his promises of utopia are going to be funded but uses reasonable language to convince the gullible that £550 billion GBP can be borrowed without consequence to make it all come true.

When this last happened under a Labour Government, the country was bankrupted under the iron heel of the IMF until Margaret Thatcher persuaded the Sultan of Brunei to bail us out.

Corbyn’s “Red Guards” are young imbeciles who have short memories and who were never born when these events took place and Corbyn is counting on them to not know which certainly makes him doubly dangerous and a Pied Piper with a beard.
