who do you think you are kidding mr hitler?

"The home guard would be become the superstructure for a left wing military resistance against a Quisling government in Britain and any Nazi occupiers."

An absolutely fantastic documentary (you can listen to it by clicking on the 'listen again' link) on the real origins of the Home Guard. Quite surprising, too.
Programme presenter:What would you have done if you'd met Lord Halifax and he'd surrendered to Hitler?

Michael Foot: I'd have killed him.

And he wasn't alone. Even Jimmy Perry, creator of Dad's Army says he was been prepared to fight to the death against any Nazi-collaborating government.
