Even then Princess Elizabeth did her bit to contribute to the war effort. As a young woman, the future Queen of England was a qualified mechanic and driver of heavy vehicles.
Today’s “woke” “activists” for their part issue shrill cries of outrage over proposals to mobilise millions of young Filipinos to the service of the nation. They preach about sacrifice and even dying for their country but, unlike Elizabeth, fail to walk their talk when called into the very service they pontificate about.
What is even worse is that they make demonisation of the Filipino soldier and police officer a cornerstone of their flaccid “activism”.
