Gypsies to sue IBM over Nazi 'links'

The spirit of litigation is alive and well. IBM's wartime activities are about to be put under renewed scrutiny. 'NoNco' reckons that it's about time that we forgot about the war and moved to the bar:

Oh man. More people trying to get more money for something that happened over 50 years ago.

I'm not a Nazis supporter but I am so sick and tired of having to listen or read about people who still want to go on about WW2. Isn't it about time they get over it. We don't need to forget but we don't need to try and squeeze every dollar out of if.

Its bad enough we have reruns of WW2 every time the English play Germany in football.

All these people who want to sue for WW2, were they even alive then.

Why doesn't someone sue someone for WW1 or even the Italians for the Roman empire

If you want to sue someone sue Bill Gates for the loss of data on your PC or sue the US Government for something or even Tony Blair for Foot and Mouth.

Maybe I should sue my manager for being an asshole

Bla Bla Bla. Enough now. I need a beer.........

Young man, we fought in two world wars to defend your democratic right to drink a beer without jack-booted brownshirts spilling your pint with impunity. Take note.
