Referring to Karl Marx, whom I took the opportunity to humorously slag off and give a kick downhill to the rotting bones of, just now below, this Cliff Richard song was written by a good old friend. His father was Paul Richey, who fought _Before_ the Battle of Britain in RAF Hurricanes in France – early 1940. What Peter Richey said was that “If Marx was a dietician, then Lenin must have been a force-feeder”.
Here’s his dad (circled). About a third of these guys of No-1 Squadron survived the war. Please notice that at least one is smoking. Good man!!! :-
