A Nazi tree....

Or at least, that is what some Polish politicians think one rather attractive oak tree is:

"The tree was given to the city in 1942 as a birthday gift from Hitler to the then-head of the town council, said 80-year-old Kazimierz Polak, who was an eyewitness to the planting. Local politicians have called for the tree to be removed.

“The tree remembers the biggest criminal in the history of mankind,” Jaslo mayor Maria Kurovska told a Polish newspaper. She has ordered the oak to be chopped down and publicly burned".
The issue has come about because said oak is in the way of a planned intersection, but even so. Further details, to-ing and fro-ing and a photograph here. Perhaps they ought to give the tree a thorough beating while they are at it.

Damn Dizzy got there first.

I would love to see their heads explode trying to work this one out.

I would think it possible that a tree might be found in these parts which has connections to someone 'unsavoury', say a crowned head, Mosley, Fatcher, a BP bod or someone else in the enviroloons' pantheon of odium. Maybe I'll start a rumour.

That's nothing - try this for size.
