    Default UK finally paid off the Yanks!

    Well on the 1st January 2007 the United Kingdom made its final World War Two war-debt payment to America! We are WW2 debt free Brit linkers!

    America demanded the first payment on Victory in Japan day, September 2nd 1945. Geeez, woulda thought you Yanks woulda given us a chance to celebrate before callin in the debts!

    Just thought that was in an interesting fact for you all.

    We had no choice but to call in the debts. We have a few trillion dollars to pay back ourselves!

    Does this INCLUDE interest, or just the principal?

    I would assume allied war debts would be interest free.

    I would have thought so. Otherwise I cant imagine repayment would have been completed in any of our lifetimes.

    Just a shame the price lots of British and American lads paid can never be paid off. They wont ever be forgotton though! Not as long as I am around anyway....
