Comment: RE: SHK 14.2475 Pop Culture: Politics
The close 'don't mention the war' parallels were very skillfully dealt
with in the last National Theatre production of Henry V which set the
decision to go to war as a corporate board meeting and 'staged' the
invasion for television with key speeches used for sound bites.
