Butcher Haig wasn't lionised by anyone in the UK, outside of the flunkies at the top. Britain never released any account of the numbers who died from the "Spanish Flu", as far as I know, we still haven't. Estimates, for overall SP deaths vary from 20 million to over 80 million. If you're interested; the official British version of how SP started was british soldier who was gassed, and, then caught the flu. The two somehow joined together. He then infected a wounded US soldier who then, on being repatriated to the US, infected other US soldiers, who then brought the flu back to Europe. Reminds me of the official cause of AIDS in three US cities, and Tokyo; apparently it was all down to an infected, randy, homosexual, Canadian flight attendant. The official reason for AIDS starting in Africa has changed several times. The first, official, reason given was that a virus from a green monkey had got accidently mixed in with a batch of polio vaccine. That changed to a Congolese male who shagged a green monkey, which, incidentally is about the size of a chicken. The latest, official, reason is that a group of Congolese hunters caught it from green monkeys. Believe it, or not, those are official explanations.
