Satire? Serious? Sunday Times Prints Column Asking To Give War A Chance & Attack CHINA

Published time: 12 Aug, 2019 22:48



Life in Britain has become far too easy and it's high time for another war, an eye-catching column in the Sunday Times argues, prompting both outrage and confusion about whether it was meant to be satire or the new normal.

“I was wondering, idly, recently if maybe it was time for us to have another war with someone,” journalist Rod Liddle’s provocative column begins, giving readers a disturbing taste of what’s to come. No, he doesn’t want a "hi-tech war" like the invasion of Iraq but instead is hoping for an even bigger event which "impinges on us all."

It gets worse. Dismissing France as an "obvious candidate" for British aggression, as that war would be over "too quickly" – a none too subtle dig at the French collapse of 1940 – he muses that the best bet is to attack… China.

War “reduces personal dissatisfaction” and "increases social cohesion and integration,” booms Liddle.
