Oliver Brown
Quisling


Here is another illusion gone: "A testimonial to Quisling was exhibited in the Revolution Museum in Moscow, alongside Churchillís order to tighten the blockade of Russia, saying on behalf of the Central Committee of the Communist Party; The people of the hungry regions of the Ukraine will never forget that the first appeal for help and the actual commencement of the work among us in Ukraine was begun by Dr Fridjtof Nansen's representative, his friend and fellow-country-man, Captain Quisling" (from Quisling; Prophet without Honour, by Ralph Hewins, p. 57).

Nansen calculated that in this instance Quisling saved 200,000 people from death by starvation.

So please do not call our opponents "quislings". They do not deserve it.

It is admitted that he was a Commander of the Most Noble Order of the Defunct British Empire (CBE). But every man has his moment of weakness.


The Chairman of Cathcart Branch recently reminded me that in the unlamented days of the 1945 Labour Government I published an article entitled "Was Quisling a Woodburn?" . I have just discovered that Quisling was the right-hand man of Nansen, the Norwegian Nationalist, and expended great energy and ability in feeding the starving peoples of Europe in 1918-21. As I can find nothing comparable in the career of that Northern Briton, the answer to that question is "NO! " The Norwegians shot Quisling. What a pity! That is another difference!
